Cinemax Kicks Up New Season of ‘Warrior’

Cinemax has renewed its freshman drama series Warrior for a second season, the network said Wednesday.

The series, based on the writings of Bruce Lee, follows a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century, according to the network.

"Bruce Lee's vision is alive and well," said Len Amato, president of HBO Films, Miniseries and Cinemax programming in a statement. "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.”
