Raising Dion season 1
The first season of the series focuses on the character’s lives and spends time with them as they cope with their abilities, while having to deal with outside dangers such as a school bus crash. Dion (played by Ava Telek) is able to hear certain sounds no one else can due to her super hearing, while Zende (played by Mallory Heart) has the ability to see into the future. Nico’s (played by Alex Hooks) strength is not seen until later in the show when she uses it without knowing it.
Sage (played by Finn Carr), who is known for being critical of his peers’ powers at times, has visions that allow him to tell what will happen before it happens. Tiger (played by Sadie Robertson) can communicate with animals. While the episode “Blind Sided” introduces a sixth ability, teleportation, for Nina (played by Nina Sturtz).
Raising Dion season 2 release date
In August 2017, it was announced that a sequel to the series will be produced called “raising dion season 2”. The sequel was created after a successful Kickstarter campaign. In December 2018, production began on the second installment.
The show’s creators have indicated that they would like to feature guest stars from superhero shows or movies in future episodes of season 2 as well as create crossover episodes with other shows. In February 2019, it was announced that Joey Bragg and Jake Sim will join returning cast members Sadie Robertson and Mallory Heart in season two.
Season 2 was about both Dion and his family as they learn to cope with their new abilities now that the world knows what they can do. The series was set six months after season one and will continue to tell the story of a normal family living in a world where superpowers are real, and it’s becoming clear: there’s no such thing as normal anymore. The season was released on December 13, 2019.
Plot of Raising Dion Season 2
After a seven-year hiatus, the most talked about series is back with the most awaited season two. Raising Dion follows single mother Nicole Reese, who tries to raise her son Dion after the untimely death of her husband Mark (Jason Ritter). In season one, we saw how Nicole struggled to balance work and home life while trying to make sure that Dion developed superpowers in order for him to take over his late father’s superhero legacy.
In Season Two, there’s been an even bigger shift in the world around Nicole as she learns more about what it means to be not only a great mom but also a leader of heroes. We all felt like something was missing in our lives when Netflix announced its cancellation last July. But, with its return on April 4th 2019, we’ll once again experience the magic of this series.
The lead actor Alisha Wainwright tweeted about their happiness and excitement about season 2. She wrote “we are so excited you guys! Thank you so much for all of your support!” The cast are very active in sharing posts related to the upcoming season through their social media accounts.
Some have even created t-shirts with quotes from the first season available for purchase online. The show was initially released on October 12, 2018. Even before it was released, Netflix announced that they have already renewed the show for a second season.
The plot revolves around Nicole, who is struggling to raise her son Dion after the death of her husband Mark. She discovers that he has different superpowers which make him special and unique among other children. The plot dives deeper into the world of superheroes as little Dion tries to save his neighborhood from villains while keeping his identity safe from his mom.
What will happen next on Raising Dion?
Since the show is still in pre-production, no one knows what will happen next on season 2 except for its creator Dennis Liu. What fans do know are speculations based on the comic book series written by Liu. The first season followed closely with the first issue of the comic.
It is speculated that there will be even more heroes introduced to the show since Nicole doesn’t have enough help in battling villains with just her son Dion. It can also be assumed that little Dion’s powers will become stronger as he gets older, especially now that he has his mom’s support and love to guide him through his challenges.
The first season was able to maintain a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 14 review. Critics enjoyed how it touched upon core concepts such as parenthood, family values, inner strength, togetherness, death, superheroes, and humanity. The unique concept made critics even more excited for season 2 which will hit Netflix sometime in April 2019.
From 2017 to 2018, Netflix has been growing exponentially reaching a total of 125 million subscribers worldwide compared to the more 65 million subscribers it had 3 years ago . The streaming platform is worth an estimate 270 billion dollars which makes it one of the most successful companies ever created. Despite being based in America, Netflix was able to reach over 190 countries with their 100% original programming that has included award-winning series such as Ozark, Narcos , Orange Is The New Black, Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why among others.
Last year during the month of October, Raising Dion was put on hold shortly after being released. The show only got a 10 episodes run and a ton of questions left unanswered which made it difficult for fans to see this amazing story being taken down without any proper conclusion. On July 2018, just a month before season 2 was supposed to be released; Netflix announced that they have decided to cancel the show.
Will Raising Dion get a third season?
Raising Dion’s third season won’t be produced. Sammi Haney, who portrayed Esperanza in the Micheal B. Jordan-produced superhero thriller, announced the news on Instagram on Tuesday, & Netflix later verified it.
