Netflix’s Raising Dion was a likable family adventure series with a lot of heart. Sadly, if viewers don’t get behind shows they love streaming services will cancel them rather quickly.
And not to mention, the series was dealt a raw deal by the pandemic with season 2 being so far removed from season 1 most viewers didn’t even know it was back.
Series star Sammi Haney, who played Esperanza on the Michael B. Jordan-produced superhero drama, revealed the news Tuesday on Instagram and it was confirmed by Netflix.
“Sad to say that Raising Dion is CANCELED [sic],” Haney wrote. “Thank you for all of the amazing support we got from all of our wonderful fans! Season 2 was a success, equal to Season 1, even if just looking at how many people watched all of it and wanted a season 3!”
Based on the comic book by Dennis Liu, Raising Dion followed the story of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) and her son Dion (Ja’Siah Young) after Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, superhero-like abilities. Two years after defeating the Crooked Man (Jason Ritter), Season 2 follows Dion as he continues honing his powers with the support of his mom and Tevin (Rome Flynn), his Biona trainer who catches Nicole’s eye. After befriending new student Brayden (Griffin Robert Faulkner) – a fellow powered kid – a series of alarming events unfold, and Dion learns that danger is still looming.
