Netflix Cancels Superhero Drama ‘Raising Dion’

Netflix has opted against a third season of superhero drama “Raising Dion.” Castmember Sammi Haney shared the news on Instagram yesterday. “Sad to say that ‘Raising Dion’ is CANCELED,” Haney wrote. “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.”

Based on a 2015 comic book and short film by Dennis Liu, “Raising Dion” stars Alisha Wainwright as a widowed mother raising a 10-year-old son (Ja’Siah Young) who has started to demonstrate superpowers. The cast also features Haney, Jazmyn Simon, Jason Ritter, Griffin Robert Faulkner and Ali Ahn; executive producer Michael B. Jordan has a recurring part as Dion’s late father.

Carol Barbee served as showrunner on the series and executive produced with Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Liu, Darren Grant, Michael Green and Macro’s Charles D. King, Poppy Hanks and Marta Fernandez. Liu and Grant also directed several episodes each.
