Netflix's On My Block trailer reminds us high school is 'complicated'
There are a lot of rules to succeeding in high school, according to the trailer for Netflix’s new show On My Block.
The new series, co-created by Lauren Iungerich (Awkward), Eddie Gonzalez, and Jeremy Haft, follows a group of four friends as they begin a new chapter at their inner-city high school in South Central LA.
The series follows Cesar (Diego Tinoco), Ruby (Jason Genao), Monse (Sierra Capri), and Jamal (Brett Gray) as they deal with everything from first love to reinventing yourself, from joining the football team to joining a gang. The series navigates both the lighthearted experiences of freshman year as well as the serious issues the friends are forced to confront.
All the while, the group does its best to follow the most important rule of high school: stick together. Although, as Monse says in the trailer, “It’s complicated. We’re dysfunctional.”
On My Block premieres on Netflix March 16. Watch the trailer above.
