Last years family hit “Raising Dion” has been renewed at Netflix for a second season! The series was one of the most popular shows released in 2019 and starred newcomer Ja’Siah Young will star as ‘Dion Reese’ and Alisha Wainwright (“Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”) will star as his mother, ‘Nicole Reese’. Season 1 follows the story of a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion 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 magical, 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.
While season 1 had a neat conclusion, it did leave the story open for some extra tales. I, for one, am happy to see more! Production on season 2 begins later this year.
The series is based on the comic book by Dennis Liu who also created this short promotional video (note this is not footage from the Netflix series):
