Raising Dion is a Netflix original series that first aired on October 4, 2019 and currently has one full season available to watch, it is based on the comic book and short film of the same name by Dennis Liu. The series starts out about a little boy that starts to display incredibly powerful abilities and how his mother tries to cope with these abilities and hide them from other people but as the series goes on it becomes about much, much more and slowly starts to introduce other super-powered individuals and the origin of their abilities.
When I first noticed the show on Netflix I initially passed it up as it was rated TV-PG and I assumed it’d be aimed towards kids and kids alone but I eventually ran out of new shows to watch and decided to give Raising Dion a chance and I’m super glad I did. The show takes us on an adventure while explaining the science behind the incredible abilities some people have mysteriously gained and although there is a lot to love about this show for kids there is also a lot to keep us grown-ups entertained.
There is a lot to love about this series including the great cast such as Michael B. Jordan who is great in pretty much anything he stars in, the dude can effin act. He is joined by Alisha Wainwright and Jason Ritter and although Jordan doesn’t have a huge role but his character is integral to the storyline and success of the series. There are a couple good plot twists towards the end of the series, one kind of predictable and the other not so much, it will leave you in anticipation for the next season, which is sure to happen seeing the show is trending on social media at the moment, mostly due to the plot twist everyone is talking about. If you’re looking for a new show to sink yourself into Raising Dion is a choice you won’t regret and can be enjoyed by parents and kids alike.
