Dwayne Johnson Series Canceled After Three Seasons at NBC

According to Deadline, NBC will not renew Dwayne Johnson series YoungRock for a fourth season.

The cancellation comes three months since the sitcom wrapped up its 13-episode third season. This comes as another blow to Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, after last year’s dismal performance of Black Adam.

Despite these setbacks, the wrestler-turned-actor still has plenty of high-profile projects lined up. These include a lead opposite Chris Evans in Amazon Studios’ Red One, as well as Disney’s live-action Moana adaptation. Following his surprise return as Luke Hobbs in Fast X, it was confirmed that he will star opposite Jason Momoa in a brand new Fast & Furious spin-off.

What was Young Rock about?

“The sitcom centered on different chapters of Dwayne Johnson’s life,” reads the synopsis. “From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family, to playing football at the University of Miami, the show explores the crazy roller coaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way.”

Inspired by Dwayne Johnson’s unbelievable childhood, Young Rock starred Johnson, Joseph Lee Anderson, Stacey Leilua, Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, Uli Latukefu, Ana Tuisila, Fasitua Amosa, John Tui, Adam Ray, Emmett Skilton, Luke Hawx, Randall Park, Rosario Dawson, and more.

Young Rock was co-written and executive produced by Nahnatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang. It was executive produced by Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Jennifer Carreras. The series was a co-production between Universal Television, Seven Bucks Productions, and Khan’s Fierce Baby Productions.
