NBC has given the smackdown to the Young Rock. After three seasons the sitcom has been cancelled.
After bringing in an average of three million viewers the first season, the series dropped to an average of 2.2 million per episode for the second season and to just an average of 1.43 million during its third season.
The series detailed The Rock’s rise to becoming a WWE superstar and the trials, tribulations of his family.
The show was created by Dwayne Johnson himself, Jeff Chiang and Nahnatchka Khan, the sister of Nick Khan, the CEO of WWE. Khan also produced the shows Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Fresh Off the Boat.
Johnson himself has not commented publicly on the cancelation.
