'Tyler Perry's Young Dylan' wraps season 1

The star of Nickelodeon’s new primetime Saturday show, Dylan Gilmer, showed a sneak peek of the finale celebration on his Instagram page

It’s a wrap for the cast and crew of “Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan.”

The star of Nickelodeon’s new primetime Saturday show, Dylan Gilmer, showed a sneak peek of the finale celebration on his Instagram page.

And it looks like “Young Dylan,” which is filmed at Tyler Perry Studios, kicked off to great start with its first episode.

The February season premiere of the Nickelodeon sitcom was the network’s biggest in three years, according to Deadline.

The debut of the comedic sitcom “reached more than 2.6 million total viewers in six airings over the premiere weekend,” the outlet reports.

“Thank you army!!!! I so appreciate all of this love and support!! God bless you. Thank you for making these kids stars!! Young Dylan on @Nickelodeon every Saturday at 8:30/7:30c!!! #YoungDylan,” Perry wrote in an Instagram post.

“Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan” is Perry's first kid-scripted series for Nickelodeon. The series follows a family whose world is turned upside down when their nephew, Young Dylan, played by Gilmer, an aspiring hip-hop star, moves in unannounced.

Dylan’s grandmother Viola is played by actress Aloma Wright. 

During the first episode that aired on Saturday, she realizes that raising her grandson is too much to take on, so she decides to send him to live indefinitely with her affluent son Myles Wilson (Carl Anthony Payne II), his wife Yasmine (Mieko Hillman) and their two kids Rebecca (Celina Smith) and Charlie (Hero Hunter).

The Wilson family household needs to adapt as lifestyles clash between rising hip-hop star Young Dylan and his straight-laced cousins.

The family’s transition together is comedic and reminisces other African-American sitcoms like “Family Matters” and “The Fresh Prince.”
