On My Block’s young adults return for one final adventure

On Monday, October 4th, here’s what’s on television. All times are in Eastern Standard Time.

On My Block (Netflix, series finale at 3:01 a.m.): This coming-of-age dramedy follows a group of friends as they navigate love, school, family problems, and gang affiliations in the harsh (and fictional) Los Angeles neighborhood of Freeridge.

The fourth and final season begins two years after the third: Monsé (Sierra Capri), Cesar (Diego Tinoco), Ruby (Jason Genao), Jamal (Brett Gray), and Jasmine (Jessica Marie Garcia) have all gone their separate ways, but when an old truth is revealed, they realize they can’t escape the past and must band together to survive.

Shannon Miller’s review will be published soon.

In addition, the show’s makers are developing a spin-off called Freeridge, which will follow a new group of pals who may be responsible for a terrible curse.

Wild card

The Outsiders (12 p.m., YouTube): This six-part documentary series from filmmaker Simon Frederick is all about bringing diverse Black stories to life.

Frederick incorporates personal recollections and stories from a cast of young Black actors, musicians, and other artists impacting contemporary culture.

He brings their stories together into a unified examination of what it means to be Black in today’s world.

Nia Furia (3:01 a.m., HBO Max): This program is part of HBO Max’s Pa’lante social project, which aims to promote and assist Latinx artists. Nina Furia is a young adult drama about a group of Nicaraguan students who have been banished to Costa Rica.

Instead of going all Lord Of The Flies on each other, they learn to cope with their new situation through solidarity and empathy.
