It’s hard to suggest otherwise that we aren’t currently experiencing the golden age of superheroes in Hollywood. Netflix is certainly getting its own piece of that pie with titles like Umbrella Academy, and Raising Dion, amongst others. After a relatively successful first season for Raising Dion, fans will be wondering when we can expect to see the second season of the superhero drama. Allow us to help.
Raising Dion is a Netflix Original superhero-drama series based on the comic book series of the same name by author Dennis Liu. The series was originally adapted into a short film in 2015 and gained plenty of online popularity. It only took a couple of years later before Netflix ordered the series for themselves. Dennis Liu had plenty of involvement in the production of Raising Dion, he directed an episode of the series and also served as an executive producer.

Did Raising Dion need a second season?
100% Raising Dion needed a second season.
Aside from the cliffhanger ending showcasing who will be Dion’s enemy of season 2, our young superhero still needs to find a way to bring his dad home for good. The young man still has a lot to learn about his powers, and if he is eventually to become a superhero Dion will have to face plenty of challenges along the way.
There’s potential for Netflix to produce a very special series with Raising Dion. Like Stranger Things, subscribers become attached to the characters and actors that grow up right in front of our very eyes. Ja’Siah Young, the young actor that plays Dion, is only eight years old. If the story of Raising Dion can run for of least four seasons it’ll be fun to watch both the character and actor grow into a young man.
Did subscribers enjoy Raising Dion?
Going by the reaction on twitter plenty of subscribers loved Raising Dion!
