The series revolves around a young Chinese American woman who returns to San Francisco from a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China and, when she finds her hometown overrun with crime and corruption, relies on her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice.

Note: An earlier version of this article stated that Blake Neely will be co-scoring the show. The composer was confirmed to be attached to score the series a couple of months ago, but Chung will be receiving solo credit.

Chung also continues to co-score The CW’s Batwoman, which currently airs in its second season Sunday nights, as well as Riverdale, which airs in its fifth season every Wednesday night.
