Amidst all the chaos that has been revolving around Netflix and its loss of subscribers, there is very little that the fans can actually rejoice about. Even though there have been a few series that have caught the eyes of a large chunk of the audience, there are a few that will never see the light again. As the streaming giant has made itself a reputation for canceling shows that strike a chord with viewers, yet another original now joins the list of successful yet canceled shows. The science-fiction drama series Raising Dion is now officially binned. Here is everything you need to know.
Michael B. Jordan-produced Raising Dion will have no further seasons
It caught the fans of the very refreshing superhero drama series about a young boy off-guard when Sammi Haney took to Instagram to announce that Raising Dion was canceled by Netflix. “Sad to say that Raising Dion is CANCELED,” wrote the young 11-year-old actor who plays Esperanza Jimenez on the Netflix Original. “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!”
This announcement comes as a surprise, as raising Dion was actually loved by a lot of fans for the refreshing storyline. And to add to that, it has always been at the receiving end of rather positive reviews from the critics. Currently boasting an 83% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 61 on Metacritic, the show is in fact a success.
Raising Dion is based on the comic book and the short film of the same name by Dennis Liu. Featuring Ja’Siah Young as Dion Warren and Alisha Wainwright as Nicole Warren. The show beautifully portrayed the struggles of a single mother. And add to that, the son also has supernatural powers, which further adds a sense of excitement and thrill to the plot of the show. The show also featured the likes of Michael B. Jordan in a recurring role of Dion’s father and Nicole’s husband. The actor also served as an executive producer for the Netflix series.
You can stream Raising Dion seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix.
