Looks like Netflix is about to expand its sci-fi programming slate, and a new superhero web series Raising Dion may serve as a confirmation of such an opinion. Since Netflix, as a rule, drops all the episodes of its web series at once, most of you had a chance to watch Raising Dion on the eve. And you no doubt are looking forward to any news about the Raising Dion Season 2.
First, as mentioned above, Netflix adores the sci-fi genre. The network’s bosses still can’t come to terms with such a fever, which Stranger Things have caused. And the global broadcaster thereby is continuing to order new and new sci-fi series. Looks that the science fiction is what modern society demands. Besides, those who are a bit older than the Millennials feels a nostalgia about the sci-fi movies of 80s and 90s. So at least, we should agree with the fact that Netflix (Now You See Me) will be releasing more and more sci-fi web series in the foreseeable future.
Will there be a Raising Dion Season 2?
Raising Dion has received mainly good reviews from critics and viewers, the superhero series nonetheless stands in one row with other web series of the same genre on Netflix (Too Hot To Handle). On Rotten Tomatoes, Raising Dion holds 83% approval rating. At the same time, on Metacritic, the sci-fi web series has a rating of 61/100. On IMDb, Raising Dion keeps a score of 7.2/10 based on 9.5k votes, to date.
Season 2 of Raising Dion has been officially confirmed by Netflix (365 Days), with co-creator and showrunner Carol Barbee back on board for the show’s second chapter.
Raising Dion Season 2 Release Date
After a few months of waiting, Netflix (The Last Kingdom) finally announced that Raising Dion would return for a second season. In fact, it was the first official renewal of 2020.
With the renewal of Raising Dion, Variety noted that Carol Barbee would return as showrunner for Raising Dion Season 2. Michael B. Jordan, Kenny Goodman, Kim Roth, Dennis Liu, and Charles D. King’s Macro will also remain in executive producer roles.

With production delays, our initial expectation of releasing Raising Dion Season 2 in early 2021 is now impossible. Instead, we are now looking towards the end of 2021 if not 2022.

Aside from the end of the cliffhanger featuring who will be Dion’s enemy in Raising Dion Season 2, our young superhero has yet to find a way to bring his father home for good.
The young man still has a lot to learn about his powers, and if he ultimately wants to become a superhero, Dion will face many challenges along the way.
