Media outlets are reporting that NBC have renewed the Dwayne Johnson comedy series Young Rock for a second season.
The series chronicles Johnson’s “formative years”, in which he would spend his High School years in Honolulu before moving the country music capital of Nashville, Tennessee, where he was arrested multiple times for fighting, theft and check fraud before the age of seventeen. The show explores the crazy rollercoaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way.
The series has been a hit for NBC, ranking as the no. 2 new comedy of the season in the 18-49 demographic, and the pilot episode had also been seen by 13.4m viewers. The network also noted that it is the top comedy debut across digital platforms on record through two months with 3.6m digital views.
The first season stars Dwayne Johnson, Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, Uli Latukefu, Stacey Leilua, Joseph Lee Anderson, Ana Tuisila, Randall Park, Fasitua Amosa, John Tui, Matthew Willig, Lexie Duncan and Taj Cross.
