Here’s some good news for fans of Cinemax’s former martial arts series Warrior. It appears that HBOMAX, which is currently streaming the first two seasons, has picked up the Bruce Lee inspired high/octane martial arts show for a third season. Andrew Koji, who will appear in the upcoming Snake-Eyes, heads the cast of the critical and fan praised drama.

“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. We can’t wait to see what [executive producers] Jonathan [Tropper], Justin [Lin] and Shannon [Lee] will bring to the next chapter of this series on HBO Max,” Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max said in a statement.

Fans were hoping for a third season but that seemed in doubt after it was announced that Cinemax would no longer be doing scripted television series. Rest assured, the legacy lives on as a third season will happen which is even more welcoming because there was no resolution at the end of the second season.

“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. We can’t wait to see what [executive producers] Jonathan [Tropper], Justin [Lin] and Shannon [Lee] will bring to the next chapter of this series on HBO Max,” Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max said in a statement.

Shannon Lee, daughter of the late, great Bruce Lee and executive producer on the show added:

“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 3!”

Warrior is based on the writings of Bruce Lee and takes place during the 19th century when the Tong wars filled the San Francisco streets with blood and broken bodies. Season 2 also starred Kieran Bew, Celine Buckens, Olivia Cheng, Dianne Doan, Dean Jagger, Langley Kirkwood, Maria-Elena Laas, Hoon Lee, Christian McKay, Dustin Nguyen, Miranda Raison, Chen Tang, Joe Taslim, Jason Tobin, Joanna Vanderham, Tom Weston-Jones and Perry Yung.
