The Michael B. Jordan-produced superhero series will make a thunderous return to the small screen, as Netflix has renewed Raising Dion for a second season.
Production on the second season will kick off this year, with eight episodes being produced. Carol Barbee will return as Showrunner, with Michael B. Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Kim Roth, Dennis Liu, and Charles D. King’s MACRO back as as executive producers.
The renewal comes days after Netflix released data about its “most popular” shows of 2019, with Raising Dion ranking 10th among Netflix’s original series. It was also the Most Popular Kids & Family Series Release of 2019.
Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), who raises her son Dion (newcomer Ja’Siah Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
