Bruce Lee’s concept for ‘Warrior’ might have been ignored when he first pitched the script to leading production houses in the 1970s. But almost five decades later, Cinemax decided to go ahead with his idea and commissioned the martial arts action-drama. ‘Warrior’ dropped on the platform on April 5, 2019, and progressed to garner enough praise — resulting in its renewal for a second edition. The story takes place in the late 1870s during the Tong Wars era in San Francisco. It is primarily centered around Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy and a Chinese immigrant. But while searching for his sister, Sahm is sold off to one of the most prominent and powerful Tongs in Chinatown.
‘Warrior’ has made us believe that even 50 years later, the legacy of Bruce Lee cannot be forgotten. And when it returned with its second outing, we witnessed more mayhem and blood flow, coupled with character development and interwoven storylines. Following a mind-blowing premiere, the show is all geared to release its 2nd episode. Well, without further ado, let us take you through the details of the next part.
