Young Rock, the true-story sitcom which centers around important moments in Dwayne Johnson’s life, receives a season 3 renewal over at NBC.
Young Rock season 3 has been confirmed at NBC. Co-created by Dwayne Johnson and Nahnatchka Khan, the sitcom focuses on different periods in Johnson’s life. From growing up around professional wrestlers, to his struggles in high school and his time as one of the most popular WWE superstars of all time, Young Rock features an ensemble cast around its titular character (played by Uli Latukefu) that also includes Stacey Leilua, Jospeh Lee Anderson, Ana Tuisila, and more. Young Rock has also generated headlines because of an ongoing storyline that features Johnson portraying himself and running for president, sparking speculation about the actor’s own political ambitions.
According to Deadline, NBC has renewed Young Rock for season 3. Though the show has struggled to stay above the two million mark in the metric of live and same-day ratings, Young Rock season 2 delivered the network’s second-best audience in the sitcom genre. It comes behind American Auto, which has also been renewed, along with Grand Crew. Meanwhile, Mr. Mayor, Kenan, and the crime drama The Endgame have each been canceled by NBC.
So far, in Young Rock season 2, viewers witnessed Johnson experience his first real crush and continue to express frustration at being perceived as older than he is in high school. Notably, Young Rock has also featured a number of WWE’s legends, including Mankind and The Undertaker. It remains to be seen where the series will go now that it’s been granted a third installment, and whether it will choose to delve further into Johnson’s wrestling career or examine his early turbulent beginnings as an actor. Whatever the case, audiences now officially have a guaranteed new batch of Young Rock episodes to enjoy.
