Netflix has some sad news for Raising Dion fans.

After two seasons, Netflix has cancelled the Michael B. Jordan-produced superhero series, according to EW. The cancellation comes less than three months after the show's second season premiered.

On Tuesday, Sammi Haney, who plays Dion's bestfriend Esperanza in the series, announced the cancellation on Instagram, writing, "Sad to say that Raising Dion is CANCELED. 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!"


Raising Dion is based on the comic by Dennis Liu, and it starred Ja'Siah Young as the young superpowered Dion, and Alisha Wainwright as Dion's mother named Nicole. While the first season focused on Dion exhibiting his mysterious, superhero powers, Season 2 saw Dion continue to hone his abilities before learning that danger still exists, and work together with his mother to save the city of Atlanta.

Based on Netflix's weekly top 10 lists, Raising Dion Season 2 was among the streamer's 10 most-watched shows for four consecutive weeks following its release in February.

The young cast of the show was rallying to get the show renewed. In a video shared on Instagram, Ja'Siah Young, Sammi Haney, Gavin Munn, and Griffin Robert Faulkner explained that "the fastest and safest way" to secure another season is by streaming Season 2 within the first 30 days that it hit the streaming service.

"If enough people do that, they'll quickly renew it for a Season 3," said Young. The stars encouraged fans to watch the series right away and share it with others."

Unfortunately, Netflix has cancelled the show, which is pretty surprising to fans who had high hopes for Raising Dion Season 3. Netflix's recent drop of subscribers and stock price may have influenced its decision to cancel this show, but the streamer hasn't officially confirmed if this is the case.
