Dwayne Johnson returns in the 2nd season of the hilarious sitcom Young Rock about his extraordinary life. Young Rock season 2 made its debut on Tuesday, March 15 on NBC. Watch the season's trailer video below:
What Happens in Young Rock season 2
The wrestler turned movie icon continues to give viewers insights into his most cherished moments growing up. It showcases the good, the ugly and everything in between on Johnson's, aka The Rock journey to stardom.
For instance, he recalls how he and his mom hardly got to spend time with his dad, Rocky, a WWE tag team champion. But his father’s time was the least of their worries as Rocky began to lose publicity and a fan base to his partner Tony Atlas, forcing him to take menial wrestling gigs in Nashville to support his family.
Nashville introduces new characters such as Bob Owens, a wrestling 'carpenter', and Bruno, a wrestling heel. Johnson's life was a bed of thorny roses when growing up, having his dream of playing for the NFL crushed and being forced to move to Canada to practice with the Calgary Stampeders. Barely making rent and sleeping in a one-star motel, what kept Johnson going was the love and support of his parents, college girlfriend Dany and grandma Lia.
We also get to see Johnson’s childhood nemesis, Sean Astin, who has begun to undermine Johnson’s 2032 presidential aspiration on social media. Interesting stuff!
The first episode of Young Rock season 2, 'A Christmas Peril', premiered last night on NBC. The next episode, 'Seven Bucks', is scheduled for a Tuesday, March 22 release.
Most of Young Rock’s season 1 cast members return, joined by Astin. They include Joseph Lee Anderson, Ana Tusila, Bradley Constant, Stacey Leilua, Uli Latukufu, John Tui, Adrian Groulx, Matthew Willig and Fasitua Amosa.
