"We are beyond proud to continue to share the stories of Nicky Shen and Courtney Whitmore, two strong, powerful young women at the center of this new generation of hit shows for The CW in KUNG FU and DC'S STARGIRL," said Pedowitz. "While each boasts remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, KUNG FU and DC'S STARGIRL have not only treated fans to some visually stunning action and high-flying heroics, but they also both strike very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at their core, and we are so excited to see what happens next." The premiere episode of KUNG FU has been seen by a gross audience of more than 3.5 million viewers, including delayed L+7 viewership on The CW as well as encore weekend airings on its affiliated stations and sister cable network TNT. KUNG FU saw its audience grow in week 2 on an L+7 basis. Last year's series premiere of DC'S STARGIRL was The CW's most watched summer debut in 6 years. Season two of DC'S STARGIRL premieres Tuesday, August 10 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). In KUNG FU, a quarter-life crisis causes a young Chinese American woman, Nicky Shen (Olivia Liang), to drop out of college and go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China. But when she returns to San Francisco, she finds her hometown is overrun with crime and corruption and her own parents Jin (Tzi Ma) and Mei-Li (Kheng Hua Tan) are at the mercy of a powerful Triad. Nicky will rely on her tech-savvy sister Althea (Shannon Dang) and Althea's fiancé Dennis (Tony Chung), pre-med brother Ryan (Jon Prasida), Assistant District Attorney and ex-boyfriend Evan (Gavin Stenhouse), and new love interest Henry (Eddie Liu) as well as her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice... all while searching for the ruthless assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor Pei-Ling (Vanessa Kai) and is now targeting her.
