Young Rock is an American sitcom based on the professional wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson’s life. He is also featured in the series under the ring name “The Rock.”
The series, created by Jeff Chiang and Nahnatchka Khan, focuses on Dwayne Johnson’s life, career, and how his path changed over time.
He ran for President of the United States in 2032, giving viewers a glimpse into his past and relationship with his family. The events that occurred after that shaped him into the man he is today.
The sitcom’s first season premiered on NBC on February 16, 2021, to positive reviews from both audiences and critics. Based on this, the show was renewed for a second season in April 2021, with a premiere date of March 15, 2022.
Prior to this, a special episode aired on December 15, 2021. The show has 19 episodes in both seasons, including the special episode, with an average running time of around 25 minutes.
The Plot of Young Rock Season 3
The sitcom is set in the year 2032, with Johnson running for President of the United States. In each episode, Johnson takes part in an interview or other interaction, which causes him to flashback to a narrative from one of three periods in his life, with occasional episodes showing all three.

In the first season, Johnson is portrayed as a 10-year-old in Hawaii, a high school student in Pennsylvania, and a college student and football player at the University of Miami.
Some of the settings change in the second season, but the actors who play them remain the same.
The series’ second season is still airing as of May 13, 2022. Only the first nine episodes have aired so far. “Hawaii, 1984: On the day of the Brawl-B-Q, Rocky’s relationship with partner Tony Atlas reaches a breaking point; Dewey becomes the object of multiple school crushes.
The extortion case against Lia concludes,” according to the official synopsis of episode nine. As a result, the remaining episodes will expand on this premise in the final three episodes.
We’ve compiled a list of the network’s official synopsis for the upcoming episodes.
“Nashville, 1987: Rocky takes a promising new wrestling job but is faced with a difficult decision; Ata spends a night out with Miss Elizabeth; teenage Dwayne begins to worry about his father’s health; in 2032, Dwayne seeks advice from an old friend,” according to the official synopsis of episode ten.
“Memphis, 1996: The WWF sends Dwayne to Memphis to develop his wrestling skills; when a booker bullies Downtown Bruno, Dwayne decides to fight back; in 2032, candidate Johnson’s conflict with Dr Julien comes to a head,” according to the official synopsis of episode eleven.
“In 2032, candidate Johnson rides the ups and downs of election day; in 1984, Rocky and Ata are at a crossroads with their wrestling careers; and in 1987, teenage Dwayne learns that the family is leaving Nashville,” according to the official synopsis of episode twelve.
These synopses give viewers a glimpse of the plot but not the entire picture that the show’s creators have translated from the pages to the screen. As a result, we can’t predict what major details or surprises will occur in these episodes.
How the season will end, or what cliffhangers and plot threads will develop in these three episodes, which will air every Tuesday in the coming weeks. As a result, we advise fans to be patient and watch the episodes in order to draw conclusions that will lead to Young Rock Season 3.
The cast of Young Rock Season 3
We’d like to emphasize that some new cast members may be added or removed for the third season, which will be revealed once production begins and is officially confirmed. Until then, the series’ prominent cast members are expected to reprise their roles in the upcoming season.
- Dwayne Johnson as himself.
- Adrian Grolux as 10-year-old Dwayne Johnson.
- Bradley Constant as 15-year-old Dwayne Johnson.
- Uli Latukefu, as 18-year-old Johnson.
- Staecy Leilua as Ata Johnson. She is the mother of Dwayne Johnson.
- Joseph Lee Anderson as Rocky Johnson. He is the father of Dwayne Johnson.
- Ana Tuisila as Lia Maivia. She is portrayed as Dwayne’s maternal grandmother.
Release Date for Young Rock Season 3
NBC announced the series’ renewal yesterday, and the second season of Young Rock is still airing on the network. So, requesting an official release date for Young Rock Season 3 is a little premature.
If we have to guess, the season will most likely be released in early 2023, as with previous seasons. Of course, this is all conjecture. Furthermore, three episodes of the second season remain to air in the coming weeks, with the final episode, Let the People Decide, set to air on May 24, 2022.
So, the news of the series’ renewal before the end of Season 2 is a good sign, indicating that the development for the next season was already underway, and viewers may not have to wait long because the series’ production appears to be pre-planned.
We advise viewers to be patient as these updates will be confirmed by the network in the near future as the second season approaches its final episode and production on the third season begins on time.
Trailer for Young Rock Season 3
The show’s official trailer for season 3 has yet to be released. But don’t worry; the trailer will be released later this year or in the early months of 2023 after it goes through renewal, production, and editing processes. We will keep you updated on the progress; in the meantime, you can watch the previous season trailer.
