Has the Raising Dion season 2 release date been confirmed yet? Let’s consider when audiences may expect the Netflix series to return.
Although it wasn’t that long ago, you wouldn’t be blamed at all for looking back on 2019 so nostalgically, especially if you’re a fan of the superhero genre.
The MCU unveiled the unforgettable Avengers: Endgame while also serving up blockbuster thrills with Spider-Man: Far From Home and Captain Marvel.
However, it wasn’t total MCU domination.
Audiences were also treated to efforts like Shazam! and subversive genre efforts like Brightburn and M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. Indeed, it just wasn’t just movies either, with Raising Dion arriving on Netflix that October.
Now, has a Raising Dion season 2 release date been confirmed yet?
Raising Dion season 2 release date: Is it confirmed?
- No, a release date for Raising Dion season 2 is yet to be confirmed.
Fortunately, however, the series was officially renewed in January 2020 and it’s since been established that production on season 2 began in January 2021. Depending on how long shooting and post-production takes, we could see the series return at the tail-end of 2021.
It has also been acknowledged that Carol Barbee has remained the showrunner, while Michael B. Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Kim Roth, Dennis Liu, and Charles D. King’s Macro have stayed on as executive producers.
Created by Carol Barbee, the series is based on the 2015 comic book and short film of the same name by Dennis Liu and follows the story of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) and her son Dion (Ja’Siah Young).
Grappling with grief after suffering a tragic loss, Dion begins to develop abilities and Nicole’s mission to protect him ensues.

In conversation with Collider back in 2019, the 31-year-old American actress was asked what she’d like to see from her character throughout the series:
“I feel like, for Nicole, you see her put a firm no on romance, from episode one. There’s a connection there with her husband, at the end of the season, so for me, I would love to explore what love looks like after loss. Is it possible? What does that relationship look like? I think that’s really interesting.”
She added: “Obviously, as little kids grow up to be young adults, I’m sure there are a lot of evolutions of powers that could be happening with Dion, so I would be curious to see what he can do next.”
However, her hopes for Dion don’t end there: “One of my favourite aspects is watching Dion watch his parents,” she told TVLine. “I would love to be able to have them have that moment again, just for Dion’s sake.”
Raising Dion season 1 is now available to stream on Netflix.
