Freeridge will focus on a completely new crew of friends, who “may or may not have unleashed a deadly curse kicking off an unforgettable adventure.”
Jamie Uyeshiro, a writer on all four seasons of On My Block, along with OMB co-creators Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, will all serve as co-creators and showrunners of the new series. OMB co-creator Lauren Iungerich and Jamie Dooner will reportedly also be credited as co-creator and executive producer of the new series.
“Some of the greatest comments we’ve heard about On My Block were from fans telling us that they felt seen and represented. As we embark on Freeridge, a more female-driven show, we will continue to invest in authentic characters that represent our passionate audience… Oh, and there may be gnomies,” Jamie Uyeshiro, Eddie and Jeremy shared in a statement.
“Co-creating and running On My Block was and will always be a highlight of my life,” Lauren added. “I am so proud to pass the baton to my incredible partners Eddie and Jeremy and the incomparable Jamie Uyeshiro who rocked it in the writers’ room from day one. There are more stories to tell of our beloved Freeridge and I cannot wait to continue to work with this talented team.”
