TVLine Items: Warrior Sets Return, Netflix's Splinter Cell Series and More

Warrior will kick ass this fall: Season 2 of the Cinemax series will premiere in October, it was announced on Thursday.

The action-packed crime drama, created by Jonathan Tropper (Banshee), is based on the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Watch a teaser for the upcoming 10 episodes above.

Although renewed in April 2019, Warrior‘s future was somewhat in question, seeing as how WarnerMedia execs announced this past January that Cinemax will not produce any further original programming.
