I must admit that I was not aware of “Raising Dion” when it premiered in 2019 but since being invited to interview the cast for season 2, I was tasked to watch season 1 before season 2 and I was hooked! I especially admire the relationship between our superpowered kid Dion (Ja’Siah young) and his mom Nicole (Alisha Wainwright). What would you do if you have a superpowered kid? That is the question at the heart of the series.
Joining the cast in season 2 is Rome Flynn as Dion’s trainer. He must sharpen the young powered boy’s abilities before facing the big bad The Crooked Man (Jason Ritter).
I spoke to both Wainwright and Flynn about season 2, their characters, and the series’ many themes.
“Raising Dion” is now available to stream on Netflix.
