Looks like that Netflix is about to expand its sci-fi programming slate, and a new superhero web series Raising Dion may serve a confirmation of such an opinion. Since Netflix, as a rule, drops all the episodes of its web series at once, most of you had a chance to watch Raising Dion on the eve. And you no doubt are looking forward to any news about the possibility of Raising Dion Season 2.
As a rule, Netflix announces the decision on renewal within one-two months since the premiere. And therefore, there has been no official announcement so far. However, we tend to believe that Netflix is planning to pick up Raising Dion for at least one more season, and below we're going to explain our position on the subject.
First, as mentioned above, Netflix adores the sci-fi genre. The network's bosses still can't come to terms with such a fever, which Stranger Things have caused. And the global broadcaster thereby is continuing to order new and new sci-fi series. Looks that that the science fiction is what the modern society demands. Besides, those who are a bit older than the Millennials feels a nostalgia about the sci-fi movies of 80s and 90s. So at least, we should agree with the fact that Netflix will be releasing more and more sci-fi web series in the foreseeable future.
Next, even despite that Raising Dion has received mainly average reviews from critics and viewers, the superhero series nonetheless stands in the one row with other web series of the same genre on Netflix. On Rotten Tomatoes, Raising Dion holds a score of 6.67/10 and a 64% approval rating. At the same time, on Metacritic, the sci-fi web series has a rating of 60/10. On IMDb, Raising Dion keeps a score of 6.3/10 based on 258 votes, to date.
Summing up, even despite that Raising Dion looks as a mediocre supernatural series, Netflix most likely is going to renew the web series for at least one more season. We have good examples when some series were underestimated within the 1st installment (we're not only talking about The OA). Netflix thereby, as a rule, provides at least a chance to the series' creators to film another round. So guys, keep waiting. The decision on renewal should appear in the official sources soon. Since we have no confirmation so far, we are looking forward to any news from Netflix on the subject. As soon as the broadcaster publishes such data, we will update this page.
Raising Dion Season 2 Release Date
As we have mentioned above, even despite that Raising Dion Season 2 is yet to be announced, we don't rule out the decision on renewal, and even have every reason to believe that Raising Dion Season 2 is due to happen. But when could be its premiere in such a case? The current season of the sci-fi web series consists of nine episodes, and, as a rule, it takes no more than a year to produce a new season with the same number of episodes. As a result, we might expect Raising Dion Season 2 next fall, in October 2020, given the current schedule of the superhero web series.
But still, the data above is nothing but our forecast. We thereby are tracking down all the official sources on the subject of renewal and a specific release date. Once Netflix reveals such data, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
