Netflix’s On My Block is a hit and for the latest episode of We Need To Talk About…, ESSENCE editors Sydney Scott and Lauren Porter discuss everything they love and hate about the new series.
On My Block is a coming-of-age story about high school students growing up in South Central Los Angeles and stars a cast of young Black, Afro-Latina and Latino newcomers. Navigating the ups and downs of being teenagers and the gangs in their neighborhood, the group of teens, who refer to themselves as a family, are easy to root for and relate to.
Netflix has yet to announce if there will be a second season, but with a stunning season one finale, critical praise and a massive fanbase, we’d be shocked if there wasn’t.
