"From my perspective, this was truly a love letter to professional wrestling, which is a business that I grew up in and a business that I've loved all my life and learned some of my most valuable, while very unorthodox, lessons coming out of the world of pro wrestling," Johnson said of the show during the TCA winter press tour. "So to highlight and showcase these men who were, in essence, my superheroes--they didn't wear capes when I was a little boy."

This isn't the only Young Rock news this week, as just yesterday we learned that Johnson's Young Rock co-star Uli Latukefu, who plays a younger Rock on the series, will join Johnson in his upcoming Black Adam movie. His role is currently unknown.

Kenan, meanwhile, stars the titular comedian Kenan Thompson as a widowed dad raising two girls while hosting a morning show.

Neither show has a return date yet; however, since Kenan's first season ended this week and Young Rock still has its finale to air, don't expect to see either series back on the air soon.
