‘Kung Fu’ Trailer Unveils The CW’s Reboot Series

The CW

The CW has unveiled the first trailer for Kung Fu, the upcoming series inspired by the David Carradine-starring series from the ’70s.

The new Kung Fu stars Legacies actress Olivia Liang as Nicky Shen, a young Chinese American woman who, in a quarter-life crisis, drops out of college and heads to a monastery in China, where her life is changed. She returns to San Francisco to find it overrun with crime and corruption, with a powerful Triad holding a tight grip on many – including her parents (played by Tzi Ma and Kheng Hua Tan). With martial arts skills and Shaolin values, plus the help of her tech-savvy sister (Shannon Dang), her sister’s fiancé (Tony Chung), her pre-med brother Ryan (Jon Prasida), Assistant District Attorney/ex-boyfriend Evan (Gavin Stenhouse), and new love interest Henry (Eddie Liu), it’s time to kick some ass.

The series was created by Christina M. Kim, who has previously worked as a writer and taken on various producing capacities on shows such as NCIS: Los Angeles, Hawaii Five-0 and Blindspot. Kim serves as co-showrunner and executive producer with Robert Berens (Supernatural, Doom Patrol). Big-name producer Greg Berlanti (Arrowverse, Love Simon) is also among the exec producing team.

Check out the trailer below and, if you’re keen, mark down that release date: Kung Fu premieres on The CW on April 7th.
