The season premiere of Young Rock airs on Tuesday, February 16. It airs at 8 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. CT.
It airs on NBC.

Finally! We can watch Young Rock online with NBC. Yes, the Fast & Furious and WWE star has finally made his way back to the small screen, with a sitcom that looks at his life at three distinct stages. 

The series will bring The Rock a new role, as Dwayne "The Narrator" Johnson. His voice-over work will be the thread that sews together his life at ages 10, 15 and 20 years old. 

Whether or not Johnson appears on camera is to be seen, but we have faith in the series, as it's run by Johnson and Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh Off The Boat, Always Be My Maybe).

Young Rock introduces three relative newcomers to play actors playing Dwayne Johnson throughout his youth. Adrian Groulx plays a somewhat naiive 10-year old Rocky, Bradley Constant is Dwayne in high school (where he hates the name Dwayne) and Uli Latukefu (Marco Polo, Alien: Covenant) is 20-year-old Dwayne, who's getting a taste for action as an athlete.

How to watch Young Rock online anywhere, with a VPN

Just because NBC isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you can't watch Young Rock if your current location doesn't offer it. Watching Young Rock using the service you already pay for, along with the rest of the internet, can be pretty easy with the right VPN (virtual private network), which lets stream the show from wherever you go.

The best VPN service is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. Plus, if you're ready to commit now, signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.


Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It's also compatible with loads of devices - from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You'll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.
