HBO Max is set to roll out the third season of Warrior, a drama series based on the writings of martial arts icon Bruce Lee.
Warrior is an action-packed crime drama set during the Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 19th century. The first two seasons, which premiered on Cinemax, are now streaming on HBO Max. Warrior was created by Jonathan Tropper (Tropper Ink Productions), who executive produces alongside Justin Lin for Perfect Storm Entertainment and Shannon Lee for Bruce Lee Entertainment.
“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, Justin and Shannon will bring to the next chapter of this series on HBO Max.”
Shannon Lee, executive producer at Bruce Lee Entertainment, said: “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!”
