The series stars Shadowhunters‘ Alisha Wainwright as Nicole, a woman raising her son alone after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). When Dion starts to exhibit mysterious, superhero-like abilities, Nicole must keep her son’s gifts a secret with the help of her husband’s best friend (Jason Ritter), while protecting Dion from people who want to exploit him and his powers.
Season 2 will span eight hour-long episodes, which is one less than the Season 1 episode count. Production is slated to begin in 2020, with co-creator Carol Barbee returning as showrunner.
Raising Dion‘s renewal comes just under three months after its first season dropped in October; our Streaming Renewal Scorecard has been updated with the pickup.
