After just three episodes, Cinemax has given the green light to Warrior for a second season, Deadline reported
The show from director Justin Lin and Banshee co-creator Jonathan Tropper is inspired by the late Bruce Lee, whose dream for the program died when his life was cut short.
The story is based on writings of the martial arts-great and pushed forward by his daughter, Shannon Lee.
“Bruce Lee’s vision is alive and well,” said Len Amato, president of HBO Films. “Warrior combines high-energy martial arts with wit and brains. We’re thrilled to renew such a great show for a second season on Cinemax.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a renewal after just three episodes is extremely quick. Warrior is set around the tong wars in Chinatown in the late 1800s. It stars Andrew Koji, Jason Tobin, Olivia Cheng and Dianne Doan.
