Netflix has unveiled the release date for Season 2 of Raising Dion.
The streaming giant officially announced the series will return on Feb. 1, 2022. As part of its news drop concerning its genre titles, Netflix announced the return of the series for its 8-episode second season. Along with the massive release dates unveiled by Netflix, Peter Friedlander, the Head of Scripted Series, celebrated the streamer’s massive genre slate which includes Raising Dion. “Genre stories have the power to transport us to new universes like the Upside Down in Stranger Things, teach us new vocabulary like The Witcher and, most importantly, unite us in our shared love of sci-fi, horror, fantasy, anime and everything in between.”
Raising Dion is the story of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) and her young son Dion, played by Ja’Siah Young. Nicole finds herself struggling as a single mother following the death of her husband, Mark. As she tries to balance her grief and raising her son, Nicole soon finds herself having to endure yet another life-altering change: Dion has superhuman abilities and she must help to conceal them with the help of Mark’s best friend, Pat (Jason Ritter).
Carol Barbee serves as the showrunner on the Netflix series, while Michael B. Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Kim Roth, Dennis Liu and Charles D. King’s Macro serve as executive producers. News of Raising Dion‘s second season first hit in January last year. The series was noted as one of Netflix’s most-watched series of 2019.
