Young Rock Renewed for Season 3 at NBC

A comedy about a little kid who dreamed big. 

Today, we have a piece of massive news to share with the spectators of ‘Young Rock’. We are lucky to have a sitcom based on the life of professional wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson, popularly known by his ring name ‘The Rock.’

Without a doubt, the show earned favorable reviews from critics. And now, following the premiere of the second season, everyone is asking if there will be a third. And we have a significant update for you.

Little About ‘Young Rock’

In summary, the series depicts Dwayne Johnson as he stands for president in 2032, taking a hilarious step back and looking at his incredible life through the absurd events of his family and youth that formed him into the man he is now.

He delves into his early years growing up around powerful wrestling heroes while his father climbed to stardom in the industry, his turbulent teenage years attending high school in Pennsylvania, and his football years at the University of Miami alongside tremendous superstars.

Johnson notes in his story that, despite his adventures having been bigger than life, he continues to remain a down-to-earth guy who still connects with the American people. And now we will get more ‘Young Rock.’

‘Young Rock’ Season 3 Is Officially Coming Soon

Oh my goodness, that’s the news we have been waiting to share with everyone today. NBC renewed ‘Young Rock’ for a third season and extra entertainment on May 12, 2022.

The renewal of the show was announced alongside the renewal of other shows including such ‘American Auto’ and ‘Grand Crew.’ This great series has the second-best audience, after only American Auto, and NBC claims it as the network’s top-rated comedy in the critical 18-49 demographic.

Khan told a publication last year that creating a linear narrative about Rock’s life is doing him a disservice. And that’s the reason the story should be told from different time periods.

“He’s had such a big life that, to me, just telling a linear story is sort of doing a little bit of disservice. I kind of wanted to jump around [in time], and he’s got the experiences to justify that.”

Adding, “He’s one of those famous people on the planet. Even if you don’t really know that much about Dwayne Johnson, a lot of people have a cursory passing knowledge of who he is and what he’s done.

But there’s so much that people don’t know about how he got to where he is. I think that’s what we’re interested in exploring… the surprising moments and the times where it was really tough for him and his family.”

What To Expect From ‘Young Rock’ Season 3?

According to critics, Young Rock is off to a good start. And it’s must-see TV as a look at how The Rock became the great dude he is nowadays. The show is a lot of fun to see.

Dwayne and a skilled cast of Dwayne-juniors produce an excellent collection of short stories. Season 3 should be centered around the ‘Attitude Era’, according to executive producer & former head writer Brian Gewirtz.

And added that they hoped to examine that in Season Three and beyond, at least in that period with Uli (Latukefu).

He stated about the ‘Attitude Era’ in Season three saying, “Oh, definitely. We strategically put just a quick little second of a clip in there in the new trailer, kind of like Princess Leia in The Force Awakens trailer. We just wanted to give a quick, ‘Oh my God, what was that?’ moment of seeing Rocky Maivia making his grand entrance at Survivor Series ’96.

We get to that and potentially more stuff this season without really giving anything away. Hopefully Season Three and beyond, at least in that timeline with Uli (Latukefu), we could really explore that. Uli, who plays 23-year-old Dwayne, he’s really just an athletic freak.

He took to wrestling so quickly that if Vince [McMahon] wanted to take a look at him and bring him into WWE, I’m sure he would achieve success really quickly. I don’t think he’s going to do that. But if he wanted to, he probably could.”

So, what are your thoughts on the show’s renewal? Are you looking forward to learning more about our favorite person? You’re welcome to share your opinions in the comment section below.
