Shadowhunters' Alisha Wainwright Joins Michael B. Jordan In 'Raising Dion'

Shadowhunters may have sadly been cancelled, but Alisha Wainwright is not leaving our TV screens!

The actress, who played Maia on the Freeform show, has just been cast opposite Michael B. Jordan and newcomer Ja’Siah Young in the new show Raising Dion for Netflix.

Alisha will play Nicole Reese, “a former professional dancer who gave it up to raise her son Dion when her husband Mark died. Although Nicole is completely overwhelmed by raising her son alone while dealing with the loss of her husband, she is still effortlessly cool and maintains a positive outlook on life for Dion. As Dion’s abilities become more and more apparent, Nicole’s protective nature heightens as she starts to fear for his safety.”

Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion (Young) after the death of her husband Mark (Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several magical, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
