TV News Roundup: Netflix Drops ‘On My Block’ Season 2 Trailer (Watch)

In today’s TV news roundup, “On My Block” Season 2 releases a trailer and Netflix announces that it will add a new anime show to its slate, “Gods & Heroes.”

FIRST LOOKS

Netflix has given us a sneak peek into Season 2 of “On My Block” to be released on March 29.  The coming-of-age comedy, co-created by Laura Iungerich of “Awkward” and Eddie Gonzalez & Jeremy Haft of “All Eyes On Me,” follows four high school friends as they navigate the inner-city Los Angeles. In the trailer, the show’s young leads, played by Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, and Diego Tinoco, deal with the aftermath of a fatal gang shooting that capped Season 1, and their discovery of a large sum of cash.

Masterchef Junior will return to Fox on Tuesday, March 12 for its seventh season. The show features kids across the country who will compete in a series of food challenges to be judged by the award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, pastry chef Christina Tosi, and celebrated chef Aaron Sanchez. By the time the season ends, one kid will be named America’s Masterchef Junior and take home a prize of $100,000. The two-episode special premiere will air at 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on Fox. Check out an exclusive teaser for the new season below.
