At Max, “Warrior” was canceled once more

Warrior at Max’s comeback proved to be fleeting as the Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service canceled the program following its first season as a Max original and third overall.

That being said, the three seasons of the series, which is based on the writings of Bruce Lee and is set in 19th-century San Francisco, will be available to stream on Netflix starting in February 2024, so it may reach a wider audience. The same way that WBD has previously made non-exclusive streaming licensing agreements with Netflix for HBO series like Six Feet Under, Band of Brothers, and Ballers, Warrior will remain accessible on Max.

Warrior started out as an original series on Cinemax, which debuted in 2019 to positive reviews. After receiving a second season renewal, it debuted in the fall of 2020; however, by then, Cinemax had concluded its original programming. In April 2021, the streaming service HBO Max brought it back for a third season. The first episode of that run aired in June, and the current final episode debuted in August.

Warrior, which was created by Jonathan Tropper (Cinemax’s Banshee, Apple TV+’s upcoming Your Friends and Neighbors), stars Andrew Koji as Ah Sahm, a Chinese martial arts expert who discovers his sister (Dianne Doan) in 1870s San Francisco and gets drafted into the city’s Tong Wars.

Aside from Olivia Cheng, the cast of season three also includes Jason Tobin, Kieran Bew, Dean Jagger, Tom Weston-Jones, Hoon Lee, Langley Kirkwood, Perry Yung, Joe Taslim, Dustin Nguyen, Miranda Raison, Chen Tang, Chelsea Muirhead, Mark Dacascos, and Adam Rayner.

Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, Brad Kane, and Richard Sharkey are executive producers of Tropper along with Justin Lin, Danielle Woodrow, and Andrew Schneider of Perfect Storm Entertainment.
