The CW is adding two new series to its 2020-2021 lineup, and has ordered full seasons of the Kung Fu reboot and The Republic of Sarah to air during this upcoming fall season.
Kung Fu stars Olivia Liang as a young Chinese-American woman who drops out of college to go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China. But when she returns to find her hometown overrun with crime and corruption, she uses her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice, all while searching for the assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor and is now targeting her.
Meanwhile, The Republic of Sarah stars Stella Baker as rebellious high school teacher Sarah Cooper. Faced with the destruction of her town at the hands of a greedy mining company, Sarah utilizes an obscure cartographical loophole to declare independence. Now Sarah must lead a young group of misfits as they attempt to start their own country from scratch.
