Now TVLine has reported that the network has its eyes on a reboot of Kung Fu, a martial arts-themed TV series from the 1970s that starred Kill Bill‘s titular villain, David Carradine.
This female-led reboot will focus on a Chinese-American woman who finds her town is crawling with criminals. She will need to put her Shaolin values and martial arts skills and discipline to the test in order to fend off assassins and avenge her mentor.
The Arrowverse/Chilling Adventures of Sabrina/Riverdale/everything producer and Love, Simon director Greg Berlanti is involved alongside Blindspot‘s executive producer Christina M Kim and creator Martin Gero, lending some big name weight to the project.
And if this all sounds a bit familiar to you, the reboot was previously given a pilot commitment by Fox in 2017, but obviously it never led to anything, so Berlanti and Kim are trying again after giving the idea a few tweaks.
The CW recently revealed a host of scheduling details for the first half of 2020, including return dates for shows like Black Lightning and Legends of Tomorrow, as well as the premiere of the latest Archie Comics adaptation Katy Keene.
At the same time, the network also (sadly) confirmed the air dates for the final ever episodes of Arrow and Supernatural.
