You might know Dwayne Johnson as the Hollywood megastar whose blockbuster movies – including new DC superhero movie Black Adam – have grossed over $10 billion worldwide. But hit sitcom Young Rock reminds us that first he dominated the world of professional wrestling with his in-the-ring persona 'The Rock' elevating trash-talk to an artform. Get ready to witness the birth of the People’s Champion as we explain below how to watch Young Rock season 3 online now.

Created by Jeff Chiang and Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh off the Boat), the series explores three formative periods in the young Johnson’s life, which are relayed by a fictional version of the man himself as he speaks to Randall Park (also playing himself) in 2032 about his bid for the US presidency.

We subsequently jump back and forth between 10-year-old Dwayne in Hawaii in the 1980s, his life as a Pennsylvania highschooler, and a post-college Dewey (played by Uli Latukefu) whose stalled football career leads him to enter the world of pro-wrestling.

Yet Season 2 didn’t end promisingly for The Rock at Wrestlemania 1997 and promoter Vince (Adam Ray) had serious doubts about his prospects, while the future Dwayne faced defeat from his political rival Brayden Taft. But there’s no doubt that Johnson's about to transform into the beloved icon of WWE’s Attitude Age – and that, ya jabronis, is something we've got to see.

It’s going to be a smackdown of a season. Just read on for how to watch Young Rock season 3 online now and stream every episode with our guide below.
