Here's When Young Rock Will Come Back in 2023

The short break will be over before you know it!

Who Knows Dwayne Johnson Best? | NBC’s Young Rock

NBC's Young Rock has brought the fascinating (slightly dramatized) origin story of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to audiences for three seasons. The show has offered a window inside defining moments at various points throughout Johnson's life that have shaped his identity and set him on the path to stardom. 

Unfortunately, though, the show will take a brief hiatus starting Friday, December 23. But don't worry: It'll be back on air before you know it. 

When is Young Rock coming back?

Young Rock Season 3 will return Friday, January 6 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock

In an interview with the New York Times, Johnson revealed that he and Young Rock's co-creator, Nahnatchka Khan, spent hours talking to decide which of his life stories would make it into the final series. 

"It required a lot of hours of sitting down with [Khan], just talking and sharing stories and then walking away, going back home, writing things down, meeting back again, going over more stories,” Johnson told the outlet. 

As for whether or not a real presidential run could be on his horizon—Johnson's character runs for president on Young Rock—the actor-wrestler told USA Today fatherhood is his main priority for the foreseeable future. 

"[Running for president is] off the table, yes," he said. "I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy, and that’s the most important thing to me, is being a daddy. Number one—especially during this critical time in my daughters' lives."

Catch up on Young Rock on NBC and Peacock
