Story of Young Rock

Young Rock is a story of Dwayne Johnson from every stage of his life. It’s a narration of sorts where Dwayne gets a flashback of a certain period in his life and tells viewers what happened in that timeframe. The plot of the show sees Dwayne Johnson running for president of the USA in the year 2032.

In every episode, we see his interviews where people ask him questions. When asked we get a flashback of him thinking about that particular period.

From season one we’ve seen his flashback as a ten-year-old kid, a high school student, and a college student. These three periods of his life are portrayed by Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, and Uli Latukefu respectively. The second season can bring the story of his wrestler phase and show his struggles and challenges he faced in his path.

Can Season 2 Show Dwayne Run for President?

A huge part of Johnson’s life which is wrestling is still yet to be covered. So it’s not possible that we will get to see him in his election venture for the upcoming season.

Young Rock’s season 2 could solely focus on his journey in WWE and maybe some part of his Hollywood career. If we could speculate, Dwayne will most likely run for election in Young Rock’s season 3 or 4.
