Since the announcement in the media that Marvel’s Michael B Jordan was working on a new television series on Netflix (he is both a part of the show and serves as an executive producer) His fans and women were waiting patiently for the show’s arrival.
Raising Dion,which is based on the comic by Dennis Liu and short film with the same title it tells the story of seven-year old Dion, one of the boys who has been blessed with powers from his father. There’s telekinesis, invisibility as well as the ability to heal, to name a few.
Cool, isn’t it? But a dangerous lightning person (or “crooked man”, as Dion described him) attempted to take away his power and resulted in the main character within a brutal and unforgiving storm like his father Mark.
Raising Dion Season 2 Release Date
Season 2 is officially acknowledged by Netflix with creator and showrunner Carol Barbee back on board for the show’s second episode.
Jordan will be back in the role of executive producer.
The Raising Dion came in at # 10 on Netflix’s list of the most watched US series of the year. It’s not a surprise that they’re going to bring it back for a second time.
There’s currently no release date set however, given that a number of sources reported that production was scheduled to begin in January and we’ll be waiting for quite some time.
It was announced via a YouTube video that features Senegalese artist Bou Bou creating the portrait of Dion as well as his mom Nicole.
Raising Dion season 2 Cast
The principal characters are able to make it through the events of the show’s debut and, therefore, all of the following are expected to return: Dion (Ja’Siah Young), Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), Esperanza (Sammi Haney), Suzanne (Ali Ahn) and auntie Kat (Jazmyn Simon).
We’d also hope Jordan to be back to play Dion’s father Mark and, if we’re lucky, we’ll get to meet Charlotte (Deirdre Lovejoy) once more.
The two have been held in prison by the corrupt man, but we could be able to release them If Dion discovers a way to take on the forces?
It seems unlikely Pat will return, but, after the events of the major battle towards the end of the season one. He was seen to evaporate into the air.
Season two will have several new characters. What’s the deal? Get Out of Murder stars Rome Flynn and Sweet Magnolias actress Tracey Bonner have signed up for a number of characters that are intriguing.
Flynn (Gabriel Maddox, who is in How to Get Away With the Murder) will be joining the team as Tevin Wakefield who is a former long-distance racer as well as an Olympic coach who turns into an instructor and mentor for Dion and builds a close connection with him and Nicole.
Bonner (Pastor June Wilkes in Sweet Magnolias) is in the role of Simone Carr, a mother who is scared of what Janelle’s abilities could bring about for her future.
Janelle is as played by actress Aubriana D. Davis (Young Erma from Genius). A 15-year-old Janelle has been described as dangerous and destructive, which has led Simone to send her to Biona in which Janelle begins to hear her voice at first since making a connection between Nicole as well as Dion.
But don’t think that the new characters to feature numerous interactions featuring Michael B Jordan. There is a rumor that he’s involved in another major project with a superhero: Superman – even though he’s been denying involvement.
“It’s smart of DC to grab Ta-Nehisi [Coates] to go ahead and adapt that project,” Jordan declared (via The Hollywood Reporter). “He’s incredibly talented. It’s going to be worth checking out. I’m flattered that people have me in that conversation. It’s definitely a compliment, but I’m just watching on this one.”
However, there’s another massive series that will keep Jordan busy – the third installment of Rocky spin-off Creed. This is the third time that Jordan is expected to settle in the chair of director. It’s a job Jordan will take seriously.
“That’s something that has a lot of my attention and time going into,” the actor declares. “I’m just really excited about stepping behind the camera and being able to tell a story from my perspective.”
Of course, Jordan is used to taking on responsibilities – he’s an director and executive producer of the show Raising Dion likely the first step towards becoming director.
“I think you’re always going to get a little bit of that residual Rocky-isms that’s been instilled into Adonis,” Jordan added, “but at the end of the day this is a Creed franchise moving forward and I’m looking forward to people enjoying the story of Adonis Creed.”
Raising Dion season 2 Plot Explored
Raising Dion season one threw lots of diverse concepts at its faithful audience with almost the same amount of plot elements as Dion was able to use her powers, which implies that there are a lot of loose ends that can be mingled by using laser vision (or something else) during season 2.
The most significant storyline stray is that of Dion’s father. The story has become the possible plot gap.
In the beginning of the series the father of Dion’s (Michael B Jordan) ghost is seen appearing at times in order to see his loved ones. It’s a little ‘ Star Wars Force ghost’, however there’s no clear rules at first. It appears that Mark’s spirit is in the storm caused through The Crooked Man, but after The Crooked Man is defeated, Mark reappears again and is able to give his family a touching hug.
