It's time to watch Young Rock season 2 online, and see how a fictional (or is it?) presidential bid continues to serve as a prop for storytelling. Yes, older Rock is back to tell us about younger versions of Dwayne, and how he interacted with the wild world of professional wrestling as he inched closer to the man he became.

Young Rock season 2 start time, channel

Young Rock season 2 episode 1 is scheduled to air today (Tuesday, March 15).
It will run at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

The new season will see the meta-story evolving — Dwayne Johnson (playing himself) is getting closer to his 2032 presidential election — and the topic of fatherhood is coming to the forefront in his interviews with Randall Park (who, yes, is also playing a fictional version of himself). 

The other big twist for Young Rock season 2 is the fact that Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, Goonies, Rudy) is going to be playing the adult version of one of Johnson's childhood bullies. So, if you had Samwise Gamgee bullying The Rock on your bingo card? Can you pick my lotto numbers?

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. 

Johnson's grandmother will be under house-arrest, we'll see his younger self's troubles in the Canadian football league and we'll even see that his inspiration to join pro wrestling also came from seeing The Undertaker and Kane. We'll also see fictional versions of Bam Bam Bigelow, The "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Andre the Giant.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Young Rock season 2 online. And check out a trailer for the new season:
