NBC announced today that Young Rock has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes two weeks before the comedy wraps its sophomore run on May 24 with two back-to-back episodes.

The half-hour series premiered last year with an impressive start as the #2 new comedy of the season in the key adults 18-49 demographic. While its ratings are down in Season 2, it remains a decent performer for the network.

Young Rock follows different chapters of Dwayne Johnson's life. As he runs for president in 2032, Dwayne looks back on his crazy rollercoaster of a life. From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by eccentric characters in the world of professional wrestling, to playing football at the University of Miami - all of his experiences have shaped Dwayne into the man he is today.

Look for Season 3 of Young Rock as part of the 2022-2023 TV season.
