Kung Fu Season 1 Deleted Scene Shows Early Chemistry Between Nicky & Evan [EXCLUSIVE]

Screen Rant has an exclusive deleted scene from the home release of Kung Fu season 1 featuring Nicky and Evan. The CW series is a modern adaptation of the 1970s show of the same name. The original Kung Fu starred David Carradine as the Monk Kwai Chang Caine who traveled through the American Old West looking for his brother. The CW series premiered in April of 2021. In May of 2021, Kung Fu was renewed for season 2.

Kung Fu stars Olivia Liang as Nicky Shen. After going through a quarter-life crisis, Nicky drops out of Harvard and travels to an isolated monastery in China. When she returns home to San Francisco, she finds her hometown is overrun with crime and corruption and her parents are at the mercy of the powerful Triad gang. Nicky vows to become a vigilante to protect her community while also searching for the assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor.
