Juneteenth is a holiday that commemorates the day slaves in Texas learned they were free — June 19th 1865, two years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the Civil War ended.

Nickelodeon announced in November that it had greenlit a 20-episode third season of its hit live-action comedy Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan. The series follows a family whose world is turned upside down when their nephew, hip-hop mogul-in-training Dylan (Dylan Gilmer), moves in unannounced. The season begun production earlier this year at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

The third season of Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan will follow Dylan as he continues his pursuit of stardom, while getting his family into hilarious hijinks along the way. Accompanying him in his quest for music greatness are his uncle Myles (Carl Anthony Payne II), aunt Yasmine (Mieko Hillman), grandmother Viola (Aloma Lesley Wright), cousins Rebecca (Celina Smith) and Charlie (Hero Hunter), and Rebecca’s best friend Bethany (Jet Miller).
