Kung Fu returns for its second season on Wednesday night and ahead of the season premiere, "Year of the Tiger: Part 1", The CW has provided us an exclusive clip from the episode. In the clip, which you can check out for yourself in the video player above, Althea (Shannon Dang) has returned to the workforce, but soon discovers that maybe her professional goals and the goals of her new employer might. not exactly align.

Season 2 of Kung Fu is set to see some shifts for more than just Althea. The first season of the series concluded with Nicky Shen (Olivia Liang) defeating Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman) and releasing Biange back into the earth rather than destroying it or wielding the Sword of Liang Daiyu for herself. But while Nicky is in a good place after that, particularly in her relationship with Henry (Eddie Liu) things won't stay quiet for long. Season 2 will see the arrival of a long-lost cousin, Mia (Vanessa Yao) who may be working with crime boss Russell Tan (Kee Chan). There are also some new additions to the series' cast for Season 2. In addition to Yao, Season 2 of Kung Fu will feature JP Tadena as Sebastian, the new chef at Harmony Dumplings, and Annie Q as Juliette Tan, the daughter of Russell Tan.
