First trailer for Netflix’s Raising Dion taps into Dion’s totally awesome powers

Did he just manifest stars in his bedroom? And teleport?!

It’s hard to be a single mom. It’s even harder when your kid is manifesting superpowers. It’s even harder when a government agency — which may or may not be linked to your husband’s mysterious death — is tracking down people with superpowers. But that’s just what Nicole Warren (Alisha Wainwright) finds herself in the middle of.

The first trailer for Raising Dion dives into the range of Dion’s superpowers: he teleports, he moves things with his mind, he conjures up galaxy projections, and much, much more. Disastrous storms are also drawn to him? We’re in for a wild ride.

Based on a comic by Dennis Liu, Raising Dion stars Alisha Wainwright (Shadowhunters) with newcomer Ja’Siah Young as Dion, Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) as Nicole’s dead husband Mark, and Jason Ritter (Gravity Falls) as Mark’s best friend Pat. The show, which is also executive produced by Jordan, premieres on Oct. 4.
