“Young Dylan” airs on Saturdays at 8:30pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon. It is about a young rapper’s journey to becoming a superstar Hip-Hop artist. The comedy series also stars Carl Anthony Payne, II (“Martin”) as Uncle Myles; Mieko Hillman (“Teen Wolf”) as Aunt Yasmine; Aloma Lesley Wright (“Days of Our Lives”) as Grandma Viola; Celina Smith as Cousin Rebecca; Hero Hunter (“The Purge”) as cousin Charlie, and Jet Miller as best friend Bethany.
“I’m excited about season-two,” Gilmer said. “It’s going to be better than season-one because there is more going on and more characters.” www.Nick.com/shows/Young-Dylan
