Raising Dion season 2 is finally happening, folks! Yes, you read it right. The most awaited supernatural show is finally making a comeback. The superpowered series Raising Dion has returned for a second season on Netflix nearly two years after its debut!
Adapted from Dennis Liu’s 2015 comic book and short film, Raising Dion tells the story of Nicole Warren (Alisha Wainwright), a widowed mother who discovers her young son Dion (Ja’Siah Young) has superpowers. Nicole was assisted by Pat (Jason Ritter), the best friend of her deceased husband. The first season primarily focused on Nicole’s understanding of Dion’s powers while dealing with grief, especially for a single mother.
We can expect more characters, more superpowers, and more of the tender family drama that made Raising Dion so endearing to viewers last year. Find out everything we know about Raising Dion Season 2, including the brand-new trailer!
Raising Dion Season 2 Release Date
On Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, all eight episodes of Raising Dion Season 2 will premiere on Netflix. So, finally, some good news for the eagerly waiting fans, isn’t it?
Raising Dion Season 2 Which Cast Members are Returning?
Raising Dion’s main cast from Season 1 will return for Season 2. Including Wainwright as Nicole, Young as Dion, Ritter as Pat, Sammi Haney as Esperanza, and Jazmyn Simon as Kat. Additionally, Ali Ahn (who portrays Suzanne Wu), Gavin Munn (who represents Jonathan King), and Griffin Robert Faulkner (who portrays Brendan Mills) are also becoming regulars from guest stars.
The absence of Michael B. Jordan, who appeared several times throughout Season 1 in flashbacks, is notable, as he reappeared at the end of Season 1 as Nicole’s late husband, Mark. However, as an executive producer, Jordan remains involved with the series, so there is still a possibility that he will appear on the screen.

As Dion befriends Brayden (Griffin Robert Faulkner) – a fellow powered kid, a series of alarming events unfold, and the danger keeps looming. Following twists, turns, and surprise visitors, Dion and Nicole must prevail again-not just to save themselves, but the entire city of Atlanta.”
