Netflix shows to watch: 2. Raising Dion
If you like shows about kids with superpowers like Stranger Things and I Am Not Okay With This, Raising Dion is another show you need to check out on Netflix.
Alisha Wainwright, Ja’Siah Young, Jazmyn Simon, Sammi Haney, Michael B. Jordan, and Jason Ritter star in the Netflix show.
The series tells the story of Dion, played by Ja’Siah Young, a kid who has powers, who is living with his mom, Nicole, played by Alisha Wainwright, after the death of his father, played by Michael B. Jordan. As Dion learns to use his powers, he must avoid “The Crooked Man,” who is trying to find Dion.
Wainwright is so good in this series! Her chemistry with Young is the best part of this show.
Raising Dion is coming back for season 2. The next season will likely be added to Netflix in 2021.
Netflix shows to watch: 3. Cursed
Cursed is a new Netflix original series based on the illustrated novel of the same name by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller. The series pulls characters and stories from Arthurian legend.
Katherine Langford, formerly of 13 Reasons Why, stars in the hit series as Nimue, a young fey woman on a quest to give an ancient, powerful sword to Merlin, played by Gustaf Skarsgård. Nimue is joined by some familiar names along the way.
Katherine Langford, Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgård, Daniel Sharman, Sebastian Armesto, Lily Newmark, Peter Mullan, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Bella Dayne, and Matt Stokoe star in the series.
Cursed is one of the best fantasy shows since Game of Thrones. I love this series, and I can’t wait for Cursed season 2! Netflix has not announced the series will return for another season, but I think it will.
