Raising Dion is a superhero show on Netflix that you can watch online. It is based on Dennis Liu’s 2015 comic book and a short film of the same name. It tells the story of Nicole, a woman who takes care of her son Dion after her husband Mark dies. Dion gets superpowers, and Nicole has to keep it a secret to protect him from being used while she tries to figure out where they came from.
The first season started on October 4, 2019, and viewers liked what they saw. In 2020, it was picked up for a second season, which started on February 1, 2022. Over 108.75 million hours were spent watching the second season in a month. Here’s what we know about how the show will go forward:
About Raising Dion
There is no one way to raise children that works for everyone. Just ask Nicole Reese, who is raising her son Dion on her own with the help of her family and friends.
Dion is smart, athletic, creative, and has a good heart. But he also has special abilities. And when his powers start to show, Nicole has to figure out how to help him use them while keeping him safe from the rest of the world.
The drama Raising Dion is about a mother’s journey to help her son find himself and become his own superhero.
Alisha Wainwright plays Nicole Reese, Michael B. Jordan plays Mark Sterling, Ja’Siah Young plays Dion Warren, and Ashlee Simpson Ross plays Kristi Sterling. There have already been two seasons of the show, and there are already a lot of rumours about Raising Dion Season 3.
Will Raising Dion have a Season 3?
The show Raising Dion has been cancelled. The actress who played Esperanza, Sammi Haney, confirmed the news in a long post on Instagram on April 26.

Raising Dion has been cancelled, which is sad. Thank you to all of our wonderful fans for the great help you gave us. Season 2 was just as successful as Season 1, which you can tell by how many people watched it all and asked for a season 3.
The only good thing about this is that I can now take on other roles. Because of my contract with Netflix, I couldn’t take other major roles on other TV shows, even though one of them was written just for me. So, if you work for a big studio, feel free to contact me again.
The young actors on the show are also eager for another season. They even made a video to ask people to support it by making it Netflix’s most popular show.
Why Raising Dion was Cancelled?
Netflix hasn’t said much about why it’s cancelling Raising Dion, but money problems could be at the heart of the decision.
The loss of 200,000 subscribers caused Netflix’s stock price to drop, which caused investors to pull out $1.1 billion of their money. Rotten Tomatoes says that the streaming service will lose another two million subscribers, which can’t be good for the franchise or its home for binge-worthy content.
If this is really why Raising Dion was cancelled, we might have to deal with more painful cancellations as Netflix continues to cut back on spending.
Netflix may have to make some hard decisions in the next few months (please don’t let it be about Ginny and Georgia), but it was a mistake to cut Raising Dion’s run short.
When Wainwright wrote about her thoughts on Instagram, she said it best.
“I am heartbroken that the show isn’t going to continue, not only because I won’t get to work with my amazing cast and crew in the same way again, but also because I think Raising Dion did so much for little Black and Brown children and children with disabilities,” she wrote.
“I wish we could tell them more stories in the great world of Dion. The little ones make my heart hurt.” Her point is a great summary of why a show like Raising Dion should not have been on Netflix’s list of shows to cut.
There isn’t much diversity in the superhero world, so a show where the main superhero is both black and a child is a big deal.
