DESCRIPTION:
(from The CW's web site, March 2022) Following the explosive Season 1 finale, Season 2 picks up six months later with Nicky (Olivia Liang) and the rest of the Shen family in a great place: Nicky’s been using her kung fu skills to keep Chinatown safe; she and Henry (Eddie Liu) are only deeper in love with each other; the death of her shifu Pei-Ling (Vanessa Kai) has been avenged and her killer Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman) is behind bars, and thanks to Jin (Tzi Ma) and Mei-Li (Kheng Hua Tan), the family’s restaurant Harmony Dumplings is thriving. With the Shen family now in the know about Nicky’s extracurricular crime-fighting, Nicky’s finally comfortable and at peace in San Francisco… that is, until the reemergence of sinister billionaire Russell Tan (guest star Kee Chan), and the surprise appearance of Nicky’s long-lost cousin, Mia (guest star Vanessa Yao). With the help of Henry, Althea (Shannon Dang), Ryan (Jon Prasida), Evan (Gavin Stenhouse) and Dennis (Tony Chung), Nicky will face off against the Tan family and become a shifu in her own right, as a new, action-packed myth unfolds in San Francisco’s Chinatown. KUNG FU stars Olivia Liang as Nicky Shen, Kheng Hua Tan as Mei-Li Shen, Shannon Dang as Althea Shen, Jon Prasida as Ryan, Eddie Liu as Henry Yan, Gavin Stenhouse as Evan Hartley, Vanessa Kai as Pei-Ling Zhang, Yvonne Chapman as Zhilan Zhang, Tony Chung as Dennis Soong and Tzi Ma as Jin Shen. Christina M. Kim and Robert Berens serve as executive producers / showrunners of the series. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Martin Gero and David Madden also serve as executive producers. KUNG FU is produced by Berlanti Productions and Quinn’s House in association with Warner Bros. Television and is inspired by the original series created by Ed Spielman.
