The CW’s surprise hit Kung Fu is back with a season two trailer.
A quarter-life crisis causes a young Chinese-American woman, Nicky Shen, to drop out of college and go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China but when she returns to find her hometown overrun with crime and corruption, Nicky uses her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice — all while searching for the assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor and is now targeting her.
Adapted by Christina M. Kim, the series is a modern-day reimagining of the classic 1970s martial arts drama. That show was a strange choice a reboot but the CW managed to completely subvert the tone of the original. Telling an interesting story about an Asian American family in San Francisco. All the while injecting fantasy and action in the mix.
Check out the new trailer below.
Season two sees which will see Nicky Shen (Olivia Liang) facing off against her long-lost cousin Mia (Vanessa Rao). Nicky learned about her extended family and her family’s heritage during the second half of last season. Will the cousins continue their conflict or will they find a way forward?
Kung Fu stars Olivia Liang as Nicky Shen, Kheng Hua Tan as Mei-Li Shen, Shannon Dang as Althea Shen, Eddie Liu as Henry Yan, Gavin Stenhouse as Evan Hartley, Vanessa Kai as Pei-Ling Zhang, Tony Chung as Dennis Soong and Tzi Ma as Jin Shen.
New cast includes JB Tadena as Sebastian, Harmony Dumplings’ new chef, and Annie Q as Juliette Tan, the daughter of business mogul Russell Tan.
