Warrior Season 3 Success Could Lead to a Season 4 Renewal


Warrior, a gripping crime drama, has defied the odds to return with a much-acclaimed season three, and signs point towards a potential season four. Editor Tessa Verfuss expressed joy and pride in the series’ return, acknowledging the bumpy ride it has had and hinting at a potential wait for season four. Despite challenges and uncertainties, Warrior has garnered a dedicated fan base, glowing reviews, and impressive streaming numbers, making its future prospects promising.

In an industry marred by fleeting trends and ephemeral interests, certain sagas evolve to tell stories that resonate profoundly with their audience. One such saga that has carved its own special niche is the gripping crime drama, Warrior. Initially facing a period of uncertainty and potential cancelation, the series now revels in the glory of its much-acclaimed season three, weaving tales from the turbulent 1870s San Francisco, mingled with the mastery of martial arts. The show, which stemmed from a narrative conceived by the martial arts maestro, Bruce Lee, is once again captivating audiences, with signs pointing towards a hopeful continuation into season four.

Editor Tessa Verfuss, a pillar in the crafting of this historical drama, recently opened up about her exhilaration over the series’ return and her optimistic outlook towards a potential season four. Verfuss, who has been with the project since its inception, beamed with joy and pride in a recent interview with Screen Rant. Speaking during Netflix’s live-action One Piece promotion, she remarked on the journey the show has traversed, from facing cancelation to returning with a bang, hinting that the team is braced for a potential wait, albeit with bated breath, if a season four is in the cards.

“Oh, it was such great news to know it was coming back. Season 3, I feel like the storytelling really took it to another level, as well, and so everyone’s kind of now holding their breath and seeing what happens next. But, yeah, we’ve gone through the bumpy ride of thinking we were done, then a couple of years later, having it sort of rise from the ashes. So, whatever happens next, we’ve had to hold our breath for a long time before, so if we have to hold our breath for a long time again, then that’s what will happen.”

Warrior’s current season unfolds in the wake of the race riots that adorned season two, with character Mai Ling ascending to power, while Ah Sahm and the Hop Wei find themselves ensnared in a gritty fight for survival. The season has managed to elevate the narrative to a zenith, portraying a rich tapestry of character development and complex plot lines, reflecting a tale of perseverance not just within its storyline but also in its journey to the screens.

However, the question that reverberates amidst the newfound excitement is the feasibility of a season four. The buzz has not only engulfed the fervent fan base but has permeated to the cast and crew, with Andrew Koji vocalizing the palpable anticipation. Despite the looming uncertainty, the fervor remains intact, even though the possible production might face a delay till mid-2024, owing primarily to scheduling conflicts and the revered Li Yong’s Joe Taslim’s commitments to the Mortal Kombat franchise.

The Rise, Fall, and Resurgence of the Warrior Series


The pathway to renewal is beset with challenges, not least from the studio’s perspective. The parent entity, Warner Bros. Discovery, finds itself navigating a series of financial and strategic shifts, grappling with substantial debt accrued from previous mergers. This has inadvertently fostered an environment of cost-cutting and reassessment, casting a shadow of doubt on the future of many titles, Warrior included. The production landscape has also been severely impacted by strikes orchestrated by the SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America, adding another layer of complexity to the already tumultuous scenario.

Yet, amidst these odds, Warrior stands tall, basking in the glowing reviews and steadfast support from its audience. The move to HBO Max proved to be a masterstroke, catapulting the series to one of the most-streamed titles on the platform. As season three basks in the limelight, boasting an impressive 100% critic approval and a near-perfect audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, the momentum appears to be in Warrior’s favor.

The journey of Warrior mirrors the gritty and resilient spirit of its own storyline, rising from the ashes, ready to fight another day. As the fandom fervently rallies behind the series, fueling its viewership and critical acclaim, the dreams and aspirations of Verfuss, Koji, and the entire Warrior team might soon crystallize into a vibrant reality, heralding a new chapter in this riveting tale of power, struggle, and survival.

Only time will unfold the destiny of this powerhouse series, but one thing is certain: Warrior has not only returned, but it has returned with a fervor that is undeniable and a vigor that is unyielding.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
