It is being reported that Kung Fu has been cancelled by The CW after three seasons. The news comes two months after the martial arts drama wrapped its now-final run. The move is not a surprise, as the network is expected to cancel most of its existing scripted series as part of cost-cutting efforts by its new owner, Nexstar.

Adapted from the 1970s drama of the same name, Kung Fu follows a young Chinese-American woman named Nicky, who embarks on a life-altering journey to an isolated monastery in China. But when she returns home to San Francisco, she finds that it has become overrun by crime and corruption, with her own parents at the mercy of a powerful triad. With help from her family and friends, Nicky uses her martial arts training and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice - all while searching for the ruthless assassin who killed her mentor and is now coming after her.
