The first Warrior Season 3 teaser trailer for the return of Max’s martial arts drama has been released, teasing Andrew Koji’s action-packed return as Ah Sahm. Warrior Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on June 29 — more than two years since wrapping up its 10-episode second season.
“In the wake of the race riots that upended Chinatown in season two, Mai Ling uses her government connections to consolidate power, while Ah Sahm and the Hop Wei must find new ways to survive,” reads the logline for the next season.

In a recent interview with Deadline, showrunner Josh Stoddard opened up about Ah Sahm’s story arc in Season 3, which will see the hero struggling to choose which path he must follow.
“The riot at the end of last season drastically changed the playing field in Chinatown, and when the new season begins, the tongs are fighting each other for scraps,” Stoddard said. “With the cops enforcing a slew of cruel new ordinances meant to punish the Chinese, our characters are desperate, looking for new ways forward. That means new risks, uneasy alliances, and huge betrayals that will force every single one of our characters to confront some ugly truths and lead Ah Sahm to explore the tension between the gangster he is, and the hero his people need him to be.”
Based on the writings of martial arts legend Lee, the gritty, action-packed crime drama is created and executive produced by Jonathan Tropper (Banshee) via his Tropper Ink Productions label, and is set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 19th century. It follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances.
The cast for the series is led by Andrew Koji alongside Kieran Bew, Celine Buckens, Olivia Cheng, Dianne Doan, Dean Jagger, Langley Kirkwood, Maria-Elena Laas, Hoon Lee, Christian McKay, Dustin Nguyen, Miranda Raison, Chen Tang, Joe Taslim, Jason Tobin, Joanna Vanderham, Tom Weston-Jones, and Perry Yung.
Warrior is also executive produced by Justin Lin (F9: The Fast Saga), Danielle Woodrow, and Andre Schneider for Perfect Storm Entertainment, Shannon Lee for Bruce Lee Entertainment, Brad Kane and Richard Sharkey, with Kenneth Lin, Evan Endicott, and Josh Stoddard attached as co-executive producers.
The first two seasons are now available to stream on Max.
