Cinemax Announces Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'Warrior'

Cinemax has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of the original drama series Warrior.

The 10-episode second season will launch on Friday, October 2 at 10/9c.

Season 2 follows rival Chinatown tongs, the Hop Wei and the Long Zii, as they fight for dominance amidst the growing anti-Chinese racism that threatens to destroy them all. After barely surviving last season's disastrous showdown, Ah Sahm is back with the Hop Wei and determined to wreak vengeance on Long Zii's new leader, Mai Ling, who also happens to be his sister. Spending his nights honing his martial arts skills at a notorious Barbary Coast fight pit run by a savvy, opportunistic woman, Ah Sahm harbors ambitions to topple Hop Wei head Father Jun. To accomplish this, he pushes tong heir Young Jun into a new opium deal and welcomes the arrival of an enthusiastic new recruit and fighter, Hong.

The drama stars Andrew Koji, Kieran Bew, Olivia Cheng, Dianne Doan, Dean Jagger, Langley Kirkwood, Hoon Lee, Christian McKay, Joe Taslim, Jason Tobin, Joanna Vanderham, Tom Weston-Jones, Perry Yung, Celine Buckens, Dustin Nguyen, Chen Tang, Miranda Raison and Maria Elena Laas.

Jonathan Tropper created the drama. He executive produces with Justin Lin, Andrew Schneider, Shannon Lee, Brad Kane and Richard Sharkey. Kenneth Lin, Evan Endicott and Josh Stoddard serve as co-executive producers. Perfect Storm Entertainment, Tropper Ink Productions and Bruce Lee Entertainment produce.
