Dion starts to reveal his magical, superhero powers, and Nicole must now keep her son's gifts secret with the help of Mark's best friend Pat (Jason Ritter).

Raising Dion Season 3 Confirmation Status: Did Netflix already renew the show?
Update: On April 26, Netflix cancelled Raising Dion after two seasons, so there will not be a third season. As of July 2022, there are no updatest that suggest that it will get renewed.
Star Sammi Haney 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!"
The young cast members were rallying to get the show renewed. In a video shared on Instagram, Ja'Siah Young, Sammi Haney, Gavin Munn, and Griffin Robert Faulkner explain that "the fastest and safest way" to secure another season is by streaming Season 2 within the first 30 days that it hit Netflix.
"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.
Sami Haney, who plays Esperanza in the show, also shared a video on Twitter that features kids explaining how Raising Dion can get a Season 3.
Raising Dion was on top of the Netflix view charts for almost a month. IMDb data also shows how Season 1 was in the top 17 while season 2 was in the top 70. After nearly occupying 32 million accounts viewing space, 60% of which out of the USA, the show developed itself a dedicated fanbase. Many reviews say how this show is loved for the fantasy land it sends its viewers into.
According to IMDb data, the first season was in the top 17 while season 2 was in the top 70. After nearly getting views from 32 households, 60% of which out of the USA, the superhero series developed itself a dedicated fanbase.
Raising Dion Season 3 Release Date: When could the new episodes arrive on Netflix?
As expected, the list of movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in October 2022 doesn't include Raising Dion Season 3.
Sadly, since Netflix cancelled Raising Dion, there is no release date for Season 3.
Raising Dion Season 3 Plot: How will the story continue if the show returns?
(Editor's note: Plot speculation below was written before the show's cancellation).
Unlike Raising Dion Season 1, Season 2 wrapped with less of a cliffhanger. The post-credits scene teases the eventual confrontation between Dion and Pat in the future, so it's likely that Season 3 will build up to that conflict.
It's likely that Dion will be able master controlling his powers, while Pat also does the same. Some fans are also rooting for the return of Michael B.'s Mark Warren, Nicole's deceased husband and scientist who was given superpowers by the aurora event in Iceland. But Nicole and Tevin are a likeable couple. She seems to be healing as he brings some lightness to her stressful world. How will that change if Mark returns?
Tevin will most likely continue being Dion's superhero trainer. Brayden's story has a good potential to develop further. He seems to have escaped the darkness, but so had at. How will he use his mind manipulation powers in the future? Will he team-up with Dion in Season 3?
Kat's latest position at Biona in the science department is a huge hint that we haven't seen the last of the research facility. We might see the facility train powered people, so we might see new superheroes and villains in Season 3.
While Dion and Nicole were able to seal the flower's effects at the sinkhole, the Crooked Man's energy will inevitably live on to possess another person. Finally, Raising Dion Season 3 will most likely follow Dion's transition into pre-teen/teenage life.
The post-credits scene suggests that the series is setting up for a time travel story in Season 3 as we see Pat now dressed in garb reminiscent of Marvel's Doctor Doom - approaching Atlanta at the head of his army. He's confronted by a flying man who zooms out of the sky, and introduces himself as Mind Mover (the superhero alias chosen by Dion). This is the adult Dion (played by Chris June), and it looks like there will be a time jump in Season 3 if the show is renewed.
Raising Dion Season 3 Cast: Who could potentially return and who are the newcomers?
At the Season 2 finale, the Triangle of Justice - that's Dion Warren (Ja'Siah Young) and his best friends Jonathan King (Gavin Munn) and Esperanza (Sammi Haney) - was still going strong, so we can certainly expect the trio to return if Netflix renews the show for Season 3.
Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), who was infected by the strange flowers in the sinkhole in Season 2, she made it in the end, so expect her to return in the potential third season.
The villainous Crooked Pat (Jason Ritter) might also return for Season 3, alongside David Marsh (Josh Ventura).
Dion's powered coach Tevin Wakefield (Rome Flynn), who trained Nicole's son at the research facility Biona, will likely return alongside other potential returning cast members, including Suzanne Wu (Ali Ahn), Janelle Carr (Aubriana Davis), and Aunty Kat (Jazmyn Simon)
However, Netflix already canceled Raising Dion.
