Action series Warrior, based on a writings by Bruce Lee, has been renewed for a third season.
Previously filmed in South Africa, the series stars Andrew Koji, Olivia Cheng and Jason Tobin, set during the late 19th century Tong Wars in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
“Warrior introduced viewers to a distinct world from the past, executed with dynamic action and relevant storytelling, with a brilliant cast led by Andrew Koji,” said Casey Bloys, chief content officer for HBO and HBO Max. “We can’t wait to see what Jonathan [Tropper], Justin [Lin] and Shannon will bring to the next chapter of this series on HBO Max.”
Executive producer Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, said on Instagram, “Justin, Jonathan, and I were thrilled when Warrior was put on HBO platforms to be discovered by a whole new legion of fans. Now we are excited and grateful for the opportunity to do another season, and we applaud HBO Max for understanding the importance of telling this story and for continuing to support this level of representation in our industry. I just know that my father is grinning right now to see this show he dreamed of so long ago continuing to beat the odds. We have every intention of delivering the same high level of meaningful storytelling and Gung Fu action in season three!”
Warrior screens in Australia on FOX8.
