Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a renowned figure in the world of professional wrestling and maintains a strong connection to the industry despite his flourishing career in Hollywood. He even has his own show called ‘Young Rock,’ but the show was in jeopardy for a while now. Unfortunately, it appears that the show has been cancelled after three seasons.

NBC’s “Young Rock” is a television series that centers around the life and career of The Great One. Knowing The Rock’s struggles as a kid living in poverty, many fans expected an emotional roller coaster of a show, something akin to Eminem’s classic ‘8 Mile.’

However, that is not what they got. The show had numerous issues and was criticized often, especially for some very poor casting choices. As previously reported, the show was in dire jeopardy of getting cancelled by NBC.

NBC revealed today that Young Rock will be among the shows not returning to their lineup this Fall. This was not unexpected when NBC released their Fall line-up last month and Young Rock was not among the shows listed.


Season 1 averaged more than 3 million viewers with a 0.62 demo. The ratings declined in season 2, which got 2.23 million viewers and a 0.39 demo rating. The biggest fall came with season 3 when the show was moved to Friday night. Against Smackdown, the show averaged 1.4 million viewers with an 0.25 rating. While some fans will miss the show, NBC simply felt ti was not worth renewing for a fourth season.
