Nickelodeon to Premiere 'Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan' Season 2 on Saturday, June 12

The wait is nearly over! Nickelodeon will premiere Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan season two on Saturday, June 12 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT - the same day Danger Force also returns with all new episodes! The news was revealed by Just Jared Jr., which also shared a sneak peek!

The news follows Nickelodeon recently teasing fans on Instagram by releasing a new cast photo along with the caption: "missing this crew 🤗 Tyler Perry's Young Dylan is returning soon!".

In the season two premiere, Dylan gets ready to return to Chicago with his mother when a change in the plan causes him to question their relationship and prompts the Wilson family to help him through this latest crisis.

Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan follows a family whose world is turned upside down when their nephew, Young Dylan (Dylan Gilmer), an aspiring hip-hop star, moves in unannounced.

In Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan, Dylan’s grandmother Viola (Aloma Wright) realizes that raising her grandson is too much to take on, so she decides to send him to live indefinitely with her affluent son Myles Wilson (Carl Anthony Payne II), his wife Yasmine (Mieko Hillman) and their two kids Rebecca (Celina Smith) and Charlie (Hero Hunter). Suddenly, the Wilson family household needs to adapt as lifestyles clash between rising hip-hop star Young Dylan and his straight-laced cousins. From Dylan giving Charlie, Rebecca, and her best friend Bethany (Jet Miller), lessons in “swag” and street smarts, to learning that even rappers have rules in the Wilson house, the series follows the hilarious hijinks this family faces as they try to get on the same beat.

Announced during Nickelodeon Upfront 2021, the second season of Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan (20 episodes) will see the Wilson family household getting into even more hilarious hijinks. Hip-hop mogul-in-training Dylan (Dylan Gilmer) continues his pursuit of stardom, while acclimating to suburban life with uncle Myles, aunt Yasmine, grandmother Viola, cousins Rebecca and Charlie and Rebecca’s best friend Bethany.

Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan season two is executive produced and created by Tyler Perry with Michelle Sneed as executive producer, and Will Areu and Mark E. Swinton serving as producers.

Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan made its world debut on Nickelodeon in the U.S. on Saturday, February 29, 2020, and has since rolled out onto Nickelodeon channels globally. The series premiere episode reached more than 2.6 million total viewers in six airings over its premiere weekend, making it he biggest Live +3 lifts for a series premiere in three years for the network at the time.

Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan is Perry's first kid-scripted series for Nickelodeon.

Days prior to the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios in October 2019, the mogul made the announce during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he handpicked Gilmer to star in the series.

Gilmer came on the show to talk about his guest-starring role on the revival of Nickelodeon’s hit series All That, which Ellen helped him secure.

It seems as if Dylan is well on his way to success when his mom decides to return and take him back to Chicago. The first episode of Season 2 revolves around the youngster’s preparations to go back to The Windy City. Dylan is ready to follow his mom’s plans when, suddenly, things change. The adjustments ultimately cause the rising rapper to reconsider his relationship with his mom. How will Dylan’s support system help him through the new crisis?:


From J-14:

In the clip, Dylan (played by Dylan Gilmer) is packing his things to head back to Chicago with his mom while his cousins Rebecca (played by Celina Smith) and Charlie (played by Hero Hunter) beg him not to leave. “My mom needs me, we look after each other, you know?” Dylan tells Charlie, who then wonders who will be there to look after him.

“You know how Rebecca can be,” Charlie jokes. Dylan responds, “I’ll only be a phone call away … but, just in case, I’d start locking your door before I went to sleep if I was you.”

When Rebecca makes her way into the boys’ room, she also tells Dylan that she doesn’t want him to leave. “You’re a valuable part of this family. We need you,” she says.
