EXCLUSIVE: Get ready for war in season two of Warrior — because it’s going to be a big, huge one. The first trailer for the sophomore season of the Cinemax series based on the writings of the legendary Bruce Lee has dropped and it packs an intense punch — with some nunchaku action as well.
Set in the 19th century, season two picks up from the freshmen season as the rivalry between two San Francisco Chinatown crime families (aka tongs), the Hop Wei and the Long Zii continue the fight for dominance as anti-Chinese racism that threatens to destroy them all. Following last season’s disastrous showdown in thefinale, Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji) is back with the Hop Wei and determined to wreak vengeance on Long Zii’s new leader, Mai Ling (Dianne Doan) — and guess what? That’s his sister. That brings a new meaning to sibling rivalry.
The new season will re-introduce us to new faces and bring back familiar ones including brothel madame Ah Toy (Olivia Cheng), Hop Wei head Father Jun (Perry Yung), tong heir Young Jun (Jason Tobin), Fung Hai tong leader Zing (Dustin Nyugen) as well as a new recruit and fighter, Hong (Chen Tang). The series also features Kieran Bew, Dean Jagger, Langley Kirkwood, Hoon Lee, Christian McKay, Joe Taslim, Joanna Vanderham, Tom Weston-Jones, Celine Buckens, Chen Tang, Miranda Raison and Maria Elena Laas.
As seen in the trailer above, this season will not be short on bone-breaking action, skillfully choreographed fights and lots and lots of deception within the ranks. The 10-episode season debuts on October 2. Warrior is produced for CINEMAX by Perfect Storm Entertainment, Tropper Ink Productions and Bruce Lee Entertainment; created and executive produced by Jonathan Tropper. Justin Lin and Andrew Schneider executive produce on behalf of Perfect Storm Entertainment. Shannon Lee executive produces for Bruce Lee Entertainment. Executive produced by Brad Kane and Richard Sharkey. Co-executive produced by Kenneth Lin, Evan Endicott and Josh Stoddard.
