You can’t keep a good show down, which is something that the team behind Warrior has definitely learned over the past few years. Originally, it ran for two seasons on Cinemax before getting the axe and jumping to Max for its third season in the summer of 2023. Max, in their ongoing effort to jettison every good show and film from their library, has decided not to renew the show for a fourth season, setting the stage for Netflix to swoop in and pick the series up.
The first three seasons of Warrior will be added to the Netflix library in February 2024, giving the show its third home in as many years. While the deal didn’t explicitly mention any further seasons, Netflix could exercise that option should Warrior find an audience among its subscribers. However, with the actors and staff all released from their contracts, it would take a pretty sizable bit of scheduling to get everyone back on set for more episodes.
“Warrior is a show that simply refuses to die,” series creator Jonathan Tropper said in a statement to Deadline when the news of the deal broke. “I’m thrilled for everyone involved that millions more viewers around the world will discover it.”
Based on a concept originally proposed by Bruce Lee, Warrior is a loose retelling of the events of the Tong Wars in late 1870s San Francisco. The emphasis here is on “loose,” with many of the historical events of that period combined together for dramatic effect. However, what the show lacks in accuracy it makes up for with plenty of action, with some of the fight scenes being among the best on TV for years now.
