The comedy follows the life of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a real-world recognized movie star and WWE superstar, and the different stages of his life that lead to his (fictional) presidential candidacy in 2032.
Johnson personally narrates and executive produces the series. “It’s very fantastic and thrilling,” Bradley Constant, who plays The Rock as a teenager, told NBC Insider.
“We’re incredibly happy to be back for Season 3,” he continues.
[Johnson] is a part of everything and will be on set, which will be very helpful with the wrestling. Everything, he’s a part of it, and it’s amazing to see it all come together.”
Young Rock Season 3 Plot
Since Season 2 closed with The Rock’s shaky 1997 WrestleMania debut, we expect Season 3 to dig even deeper into his WWE career and ascension as one of the country’s most known professional wrestlers, according to NBC.
Constant told NBC Insider that he wants to see more of the sport and spend more time on film with his co-stars, whom he refers to as “brothers.”
“I love how last year we did the Christmas special where it was just me, Adrian, and Uli,” he continues. “Every Dwayne age—and Dwayne—in the same episode, engaging with each other.” That would be amazing if we could do something similar but wrestle each other.”
Season 3 will begin a year after Johnson loses the election, according to the couple. “He’s sort of gone out of the public eye a little bit,” Khan said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“But then he gets the phone from President Taft telling him there’s a national catastrophe and he wants Dwayne’s help.” As a result, he is dragged back into the fray.” The third film will also depict the narrative of Johnson’s dramatic change from “Rocky Maivia” to his now-famous alter persona “The Rock.”
