Two shows, Kung Fu and The Republic of Sarah, have been ordered to series at The CW. The network went through significant changes over the last year, with many of its most popular shows airing their last episodes.
Critically-acclaimed darlings like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin came to natural conclusions, while fan favorite iZombie bowed out last August. Long-running franchises like Arrow and Supernatural also announced that they’d be airing their series finales. While viewers got to see the end of Oliver Queen’s saga, the last chapter in the story of the Winchester brothers has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.
CW Have Been Busy To Add New Series Anyway
The CW has been looking to add new titles to its roster of programming. Already, the network has given the greenlight to Superman & Lois and Walker, which stars Jared Padalecki in an update of the original drama series headlined by Chuck Norris.
Now, Variety is reporting Kung Fu and The Republic of Sarah have both received series orders. Two of the shows, Kung Fu and Superman & Lois, come with the involvement of Greg Berlanti, who has been a high-volume producer for The CW.
Meanwhile, the pilots for The Lost Boys and Maverick haven’t been picked up. Instead, they will be decided on in the 2021-2022 season.
About Kung Fu & Republic of Sarah
Kung Fu is a reboot of the 1970s series headlined by David Carradine. It stars Olivia Liang (Legacies) as a Chinese American who heads to an isolated island monastery in China.
Returning to find that her town is overrun by corruption, Liang’s character “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.”
The Republic of Sarah, meanwhile, stars Stella Baker as a high school teacher named Sarah Cooper.
Baker’s character “uses an cartographical loophole to declare independence for her small town before a greedy mining company can take control.” The project, originally planned as a pilot for CBS, will follow Sarah as she leads a group of young misfits in attempting to start a country from scratch.
