Fans of Wu Assassins have been eagerly anticipating news of a second season ever since the show’s first season ended in a cliffhanger. While there have been reports claiming that the show was renewed for a second season in 2020, there has been no official confirmation from Netflix yet.

Despite the lack of official news, fans are hopeful that their beloved show will be returning soon, bringing back the thrilling martial arts action and captivating storyline that made it such a hit in the first place. Whether or not Wu Assassins is renewed for a second season, its fans will always cherish the show for its unique blend of ancient mythology, modern-day action, and unforgettable characters. Here’s everything we know about the addictive show, and a potential season 2.

What is Wu Assassins about?

Set in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Wu Assassins follows the story of Kai Jin (Iko Uwais), a young chef who is entrusted with the power of the Wu Xing — a legendary set of ancient Chinese martial arts that can only be wielded by a chosen few. With the help of his mentor, Uncle Six (Byron Mann), and a colorful cast of allies, Kai must use his newfound abilities to fight against the dangerous Triad organization and their deadly leader, Uncle Six’s own son Tommy (Lawrence Kao).

As Kai navigates the complex world of Chinatown, he also discovers a shocking truth about his own family’s history and the dark forces that threaten to destroy everything he holds dear. Along the way, he battles powerful enemies, forms unexpected alliances, and uncovers secrets that will change his life forever. With its dynamic action sequences, richly detailed world-building, and captivating performances, Wu Assassins is a must-watch for fans of martial arts, action, and fantasy genres.

Has Wu Assassins been renewed for season 2?

In July 2020, What’s on Netflix reported that Wu Assassins had been renewed for a second season. However, the source of this news was anonymous, and Netflix has yet to confirm or deny the rumors. So, while fans may be excited at the prospect of more kung fu action, it’s important to take this news with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made.

In March 2020, Lewis Tan seemingly hinted at a renewal on Twitter, but it doesn’t look like any of the cast members have suggested a second season since then.

When could Wu Assassins season 2 come out?

Here’s the tea: While there’s been no official word from Netflix on the renewal of the series, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some epic kung fu action in the future. If the show has secretly been renewed, we may have to wait until later in the year for filming to begin. A 2024 release date is a potential possibility, but let’s not hold our breath just yet. After all, it’s already been four years since the series first debuted, and we’re all in dire need of some explosive martial arts action. Only time will tell if the Wu Assassins will rise again!

Is Fistful of Vengeance a sequel to Wu Assassins?

Yes! If you’ve been holding your breath after that wild cliffhanger in Wu Assassins season 1, then you’re in luck! As Fistful of Vengeance picks up right where the series left off and promises plenty of answers for eager fans. But wait, there’s more! Actor Lawrence Kao, who plays Tommy Wah, spoke to MovieWeb and revealed that even if you haven’t seen the show’s first season, you can still enjoy the movie as a standalone adventure.

Hold on to your nunchucks, because with no official word on Wu Assassins season 2 just yet, it’s anyone’s guess who will be back for round two. However, we can safely assume that our favorite kung fu heroes will return to the screen to deliver some epic martial arts mayhem.

So, keep an eye out for the possible return of characters played by top-notch actors such as Iko Uwais, Katheryn Winnick, and Lewis Tan, just to name a few.
