Below is the synopsis of "On My Block," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A coming-of-age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school set in the rough inner city.

"On My Block" holds a fresh rating of 97 percent and an audience score of 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The coming-of-age dramedy has garnered a cult following since March 2018. The fanbase is only growing, and the show is revered for centering narratives built around Black and Latino youth, their families and neighborhood. Nevertheless, the intersection of teenagers navigating their way through high school, their problems and the reality of their environment resonates with just about anyone. So, viewers are rejoicing that Netflix renewed the series for a third season.

Below is the synopsis of "All American," per Rotten Tomatoes.

A high-school kid from Crenshaw* is recruited to play football for Beverly High in Beverly Hills.

The CW's "All American" holds a fresh rating of 91 percent and an audience score of 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The teen sports series is inspired by the true story of pro football player Spencer Paysinger. The inspirational yet thrilling drama uniquely focuses on the Paysinger-inspired main character (named Spencer James in the series), and his navigation of two colliding worlds that comes from his superstar high school football status. The growing fanbase is clearly holding it down for the diverse and intersectional drama, helping "All American" get renewed for a second season.
