Another one bites the dust. The word has just been released that Kung Fu has been canceled at The CW after 3 seasons. This is only the latest casualty in the long line of cancellations, with many other programs aimed at younger demographics having been let go in favor of catering to the network’s new target audience, with a mean age in the 50s range. Alongside Kung Fu, it was announced The Winchesters has also been canceled.
Kung Fu followed Chinese-American millennial Nicky Shen who after running away to a Shaolin monastery for 3 years and discovering her supernatural penchant for Kung Fu returns to her local community and uses her powers for good. This season, Nicky and the crew are dealing with the consequences of increased crime in Chinatown due to the supernatural earthquake caused by Russell Tan, as well as learning how to work with Nicky’s seemingly new mysterious partner/vigilante, Bo Han.
The show’s third season starred Olivia Liang, Eddie Liu, Yvonne Chapman, Jon Prasida, Shannon Dang, Vanessa Kai, JB Tadena, Ben Levin, Tan Kheng Hua, and Tzi Ma.
