'On My Block', Netflix's dramedy about a group of friends living in an inner-city neighbourhood, has captivated audiences. After season one's dramatic cliffhanger, fans are eager to know whether Ruby and Olivia survive and what they can expect from 'On My Block' season 2.

Netflix dropped season one of On My Block all the way back in March 2018 and, since then, fans have been hooked and eager for updates on the show's second season. The show's first run ended on a massive cliffhanger and fans are eager to discover the fate of Ruby and Olivia who appeared to be in mortal peril when season one wrapped. 

Netflix confirmed on Friday, April 13 that On My Block would be back for another season and it looks like the cast has officially wrapped production on the show's second season. When can fans expect On My Block season 2 to drop on Netflix? Will Olivia and Ruby survive? What has the show's cast been saying about the upcoming season? Here's everything we know about On My Block season 2.

Has On My Block been renewed? When will On My Block season 2 premiere?

As of April 13, 2018  On My Block has officially been renewed for a second season by Netflix! 

That's the good news. 

The production reality is that fans will likely have to wait until early 2019 to see season 2 of On My Block. Production commenced in late September, meaning that Netflix will possibly hold the series for a spring premiere. 

The first series debuted in March and viewers might reasonably expect a March 2019 premiere for season 2. However, Netflix has not yet announced a drop date for season 2. 

Check out the ultimate list of the 'On My Block' cast's Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. 

On My Block has officially wrapped filming for season 2 

Despite being renewed in April, On My Block appeared to start production sometime in September. Some members of the cast shared a video of themselves getting excited for season 2. 

So far, the cast has posted minimal updates on the upcoming season. Brett Gray (who plays Jamal) did post a photo on Instagram with the caption "until next time Freeridge". Freeridge is the fictional L.A. neighbourhood where the kids live. This indicates that the actors have finished filming for the upcoming season.

Jessica Marie Garcia, who plays Jasmine on the show, also posted a video celebrating a wrap on the show's second season.  


Does Ruby live? Does Olivia die on 'On My Block'? 

When we last left our heroes, things were not looking too good for Ruby and Olivia. We know the two were injured at Olivia's Quince, but it's unclear whether they will succumb to their injuries or survive. 

Fan theories have suggested that both of the characters cannot survive, so there is a chance we may have to come to terms with one of them dying while the other lives. On set photos have been careful not to include Jason Ganao or Ronni Hawk. 

"This [kind of tragedy] happens every day," one of the show's co-creators, Eddie Gonzalez, told Thrillist. “We were just depicting real life.” This commitment to realism also points to the possibility of one character dying and the other living. 

That said, if OMB kill off a character and go the 13 Reasons Why route, we could see flashbacks, visions, and other creative storytelling that includes the actors who play Ruby (Jason Genao) and Olivia (Ronni Hawk). 


On My Block season 2 plot? 

Based on how we left things in season one, On My Block's second season will likely revolve around the other characters coping with the shooting. 

Cesar's guilt over sparing Latrelle could potentially drive a wedge between him and Monse. It could also drive him further into his brother's gang. Of course, Jamal discovering the Rollerworld money will have big season 2 implications. 


How many episodes will there be in On My Block season 2 

There will be 10 episodes in 'On My Block' season 2. The show's writers confirmed in an Instagram video all the way back in August that they had finished writing episode 02X10, the second season's final episode.
