NBC has renewed Young Rock for a third season.

The sitcom focusing on the life and career of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will return for at least one more run, as reported by Deadline on Thursday. This comes just over one week away from the show's season two finale, which is expected to air on 24 May.

Starring the likes of Joseph Lee Anderson, Stacey Leilua, and Ana Tuisila, with Johnson himself serving as an executive producer, Young Rock debuted with an original 11-episode run in February 2021. There is currently no word on how many episodes the third season will feature.


Young Rock's first season averaged 3.036 million P2+ viewers and an impressive P18-49 rating of 0.62. Thus far, its second averages 2.150 million P2+ viewers and a 0.40 P18-49 rating.

The show was created by Jeff Chiang and Nahnatchka Khan, the sister of WWE president and chief revenue Nick Khan, one of the most powerful people in professional wrestling. Also included in its production is former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz, who currently serves as a vice president for Rock's Seven Bucks Productions company.
