Raising Dion – new Netflix tv series about a kid with superpowers

by Valda Fox

A new superhero super-power themed TV series is coming to Netflix very soon, this October and it is called Raising Dion. And yesterday the first trailer of the upcoming series was released.

The trailer shows the story of a single mom called Nicole Warren (played by Alisha Wainwright). And her parenting as a single parent is about to become even harder as her son starts to manifest superpowers. And her life is about to become even harder when she realizes that there is a government agency that tracks down people who have superpowers. By the way this is the same agency that may or may not be involved in Nicole’s husband’s mysterious death.

The trailer also gives a glimpse on the many super powers that Dion has – moving things with his mind, teleporting, making flowers bloom and many, many mover superpowers. It kind of looks like there is nothing that this little boy couldn’t do. Which would be so awesome if it weren’t for the fact that the government is tracking him down and that the storms are drawn to him…

Raising Dion is jet another tv series that are based on a comic. The comic is created by Dennis Liu. The actors that you will see in these tv series are Alisha Wainwright (known for her role as Maia Roberts on Shadowhunters), Ja’Siah Young as Dion, Michael B. Jordan as Dion’s dad Mark (known for his roles as Adonis Creed in Rocky sequal Creed and Erik Killmonger in Black Panther), Jason Ritter as Marks best firend Pat (known for his role as Dipper Pines voice in Gravity Falls).

Raising Dion will be available on Netflix on October 4.
