In an interesting move, Netflix has leased another season of life to On My Block, the web series about a group of teenagers living and loving their life in LA’s South-Central neighbourhood. The series stars Diego Tinoco, Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Bretty Gray, Jessia Marie Garcia and Ronnie Hawk.
The series did open to positive reviews when it debuted on March 16. School Comedies have had a spotty history on the Big N. Earlier, audiences were surprised when Netflix cancelled Everything Sucks the other school comedy, set in the 90s after just one season. Other than that, Alexa & Katie has also seen a renewal of fortunes on the streaming platform. Alexa & Katie also has a school premise, but one of the characters is undergoing cancer treatment.
With this, Netflix is only increasing the kind of content that it is looking to add to its inventory. While it has some top rung franchises, like Stranger Things, Black Mirror and the Marvel bouquet of superheroes under its belt as of now, it is also etching a name for itself with some of the most stunning and informative docu-dramas and documentaries. With comedies and other lighter content finding its way on the streaming platforms, it is only going to become a stronger name with the audiences.
