On My Block Season 2 coming to Netflix? The creators already have plans for the coveted second season of the comedy-drama, per TV Guide:
If the show comes back for Season 2, where does it go from here? Do you think it’ll be a darker show?
LI: Obviously there’s some real heavy stuff we’re gonna have to address, like Monse’s (Sierra Capri) mom. Obviously what’s happened between Ruby and Olivia and how we’re going to resolve that is going to be quite dramatic.
LI: We’re going to have explore that and the relationship between the brothers who are in a power dynamic in a gang. Oscar loves his brother but he can’t let his brother get away with bucking orders. So there’s a lot to explore but at the same time, Jamal found the f—ing money. There’s something awesome there. I think for us we have a lot we can explore and there’s a lot of lightness. There are some really great things that we can’t tell you that are going to come back into the show that are really fun and light. The joy for us is that we get to make this world feel really real, feel really rich, and I think next season we get to build on what we’ve laid down in the foundation of a first season and expand the world and tonally continue with the journey that makes the world really fun and a joy to watch and to relate to for kids who’ve never seen themselves represented this way.
In Season 2 will Jamal be more integrated into the action? Because he was off on his own for a lot of it.
LI: Well, he was off on his own because if you really look at it, he’s the only character in the entire season who didn’t have a sort of rite of passage into adulthood and a loss of innocence. He’s the only one who’s retained his innocence in some ways. He still believed in the lore of Rollerworld and then went out by himself to find it. Our sort of alienation of Jamal had everything to do with where he was as an innocent, more than anything else. So now that he has this money, he sort of becomes a focal point for the crew in a weird way. I mean, they love him — there’s that moment at the end where they all realize they’ve been super harsh to him, and they’re like “I miss Jamal.” There are lot of colors in this dynamic of friends where they’re all having guilt, anger that’s going to misplaced at times, and in the middle of it is Jamal, who’s going to be sort of the glue, I think. [..]
So here’s kind of a stupid, obvious question: is Ruby dead?
LI: Oh, God, we can’t tell you that! You need to ask Netflix if we’re getting another season. If we don’t get another season, then I think you know the answer: everyone’s dead. But hopefully we get another season to continue the storytelling. We’re so proud that the fans so far who have seen the show have been almost unanimously positive.
