Netflix, without fail, has given the best of shows to every age group, just like the teen-drama On My Block. The show follows four protagonists with a life-long friendship, who share their struggles of growing up together in an unsafe neighbourhood. What makes the show stand out is how they always have each other's back, no matter the occasion, but that changed in the series' third season. The final season of On My Block premiered recently, picking up all the loose ends from last season. The group parted ways towards the end of season three, even after making a pact not to let distance ruin their friendship. They seem to be busy in their own lives, but sadly, have a lot of cold blood and unresolved issues amongst them. The final season mainly focuses on how every character is dealing with things in their lives. With Monse starting her new school, Cesar joining Santos again, Jamal turning to football, and Jasmine and Ruby getting close, the season has a lot in store for viewers. It's an absolute joy to see everyone back in the same town, how much they have grown since the last season and where their decisions have led them. The season not only showed character development but also how much the storylines have changed since their inception. This season, in a nutshell, is a little messy and scattered but it's beautifully devastating and sweet in the best way possible, a bittersweet farewell indeed.
