Dwayne The Rock Johnsonthe show Young Rock is gearing up for an exciting third season, according to the show’s creators. The largely biographical story navigates the defining moments of Johnson’s colorful life. What makes the show authentic – even in its wackiest moments – is Johnson’s narration of 2032 in the middle of his run for President of the United States. The show mixes a flashback sequence with flash-forwards to a future Johnson has yet to experience.
The second season of Young Rock focuses heavily on navigating Johnson through the world of professional wrestling. The season ends with Johnson sent to Memphis, Tennessee by the WWF to develop his wrestling skills. Meanwhile, 2032 Johnson takes a devastating blow when he loses the presidency to Brayden Taft (Michael Torpey).
While a lot of drama ensued, there’s still a lot to come according to the show’s creators. Nahnachka Khan and Jeff Chiang. The duo announced that Season 3 would pick up a year after Johnson lost in the election. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Khan said: “He kind of got out of the public eye a bit, but then he gets the call from President Taft telling him there’s a national crisis and that he needs Dwayne’s help. So he kind of got back into the mix.” The third episode is also set to tell the story of Johnson’s iconic transformation from “Rocky Maivia” to his now much-adored alter-ego “The Rock.”
Although parts of the NBC show are heavily dramatized, the foundation is still at the heart of Johnson’s craziest and most notable experiments. The creators added that an important part of the process was the actor’s willingness to share those personal details. “We want to honor his family and their story and their support and all the little details he’s willing to share that help us make this show more specific,” Chiang said. “He shares all those little details that I think we’d all be curious to know about Dwayne.”
