Fans of the martial arts drama series "Warrior" can breathe easy now as it has been picked up for a third season.

The former Cinemax series, set in late 19th century Tong Wars in San Francisco's Chinatown, is being moved to HBO Max.

The period action drama is based on Bruce Lee's writing, created by Jonathan Tropper, who is known for his "Banshee" action drama series, and executive produced by "Fast & Furious 9" and "Star Trek Beyond" director Justin Lin, the Vulture reported.

Bruce Lee's daughter Shannon Lee, who also serves as an executive producer on the show, took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce the renewal. However, the date for the third season's premiere has not been announced yet.

"Justin, Jonathan, and I were thrilled when Warrior was put on HBO platforms to be discovered by a whole new legion of fans," she wrote. "Now we are excited and grateful for the opportunity to do another season, and we applaud HBO Max for understanding the importance of telling this story and for continuing to support this level of representation in our industry."

"I just know that my father is grinning right now to see this show he dreamed of so long ago continuing to beat the odds," she added. "We have every intention of delivering the same high level of meaningful storytelling and Gung Fu action in Season 3."

The official handle of HBO Max also took to Twitter to reveal, "this fight’s not over. Warrior has been renewed as a Max Original for season 3."

"Warrior introduced viewers to a distinct world from the past, executed with dynamic action and relevant storytelling, with a brilliant cast led by Andrew Koji,” Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer at HBO and HBO Max said, Deadline reported. “We can’t wait to see what Jonathan, Justin, and Shannon will bring to the next chapter of this series on HBO Max.

Besides Koji, the cast includes Celine Buckens, Kieran Bew, Dianne Doan, Olivia Cheng and Hoon Lee in the key roles. Season two of the action series released with 10 episodes in October 2020 on the Cinemax streaming platform and wrapped up in December 2020.
