One of our 2019 faves–‘Raising Dion‘–has been renewed for a second season over at Netflix, and we’re so here for it.

The news came on Thursday (Jan.2) and fans can expect the superhero thriller series to return in 2020 with its original cast including Michael B. Jordan, Ja’Siah Young, Alisha Wainwright, Jason Ritter, and Jazmyn Simon.

The Season 2 order includes eight one-hour episodes, and production will begin in 2020. Netflix revealed the news with an announcement video featuring Senegalese painter Bou Bou painting a portrait of Season 1’s lead characters, Nicole and Dion.

Carol Barbee will return as showrunner for the second season, and Michael B. Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Kim Roth, Dennis Liu and Charles D. King’s Macro will return as executive producers.

Raising Dion” follows Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), a woman raising her son Dion (Ja’Siah Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (Jordan). The struggles of a single mother are amplified, however, after Dion begins to manifest superhuman abilities. Now, she must keep his powers a secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter) and protect Dion from those who might exploit him.

Netflix included “Raising Dion” on its recent release of its most-watched series of 2019. While Netflix, per usual, did not disclose viewership numbers, it said it determined its list by counting the total number of households to stream an individual title for at least two minutes during the first 28 days of its release.

The official ‘Raising Dion’ Instagram page shared the news on Thursday with the post below.
