TVB Finally Confirms “Flying Tiger 2” Premiere for May

After nearly a year of postponements, TVB finally confirms that it will air the Shaw Brothers’ television drama Flying Tiger 2 <飛虎之雷霆極戰> in Hong Kong, premiering May 18, 2020.

The police series, which is the second installment to the Shaw Brothers’ Flying Tiger franchise, had already aired in Mainland China through Youku in September 2019. The first installment aired in 2018.

Flying Tiger 2 features a star-studded cast: in addition to the return of Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), and Ron Ng (吳卓羲) in lead roles, it also stars Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧), David Chiang (姜大衛), Dominic Lam (林嘉華), Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), Oscar Leung (梁競徽), Joel Chan (陳山聰), and Kelly Cheung (張曦雯).

It also features special appearances by Liza Wang (汪明荃), Michael Wong (黃敏德), and Hollywood actor Lee Pace.

Flying Tiger 2 centers on a specialized anti-terror unit spawned off by the Special Duties Unit (SDU), a highly trained and militarized unit of the Hong Kong Police Force. The special unit was formed to deal with missions that are deemed too dangerous for even the SDU to handle. The A Team, as it is known, specializes in training spies to infiltrate crime organizations.

Introducing “Flying Tiger 2” Characters

Michael Miu (苗僑偉) plays SDU Chief Superintendent Lok Ka-shing, captain of the A Team. A straightforward and righteous leader, Lok Sir is well-respected among his peers and subordinates. Within his hard exterior he is warm-hearted and reliable, but is married to his job.

Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) plays Senior Inspector Eddie Wong, who gets transferred to the A Team from his original post as leader of a crime unit. Eddie is a former MI6 agent, a trained spy, and works well under pressure. Among friends, he is known for his humor. His eyes were injured during a bomb explosion, rendering him unable to produce tears.

Ron Ng (吳卓羲) plays Senior Inspector Cheung Man-lung, who gets chosen to be part of the A Team due to his exceptional observational skills and specialty in cryptography. He is formerly a member of the Narcotics Bureau. Dependable and reliable, what Lung hates more than anything else in the world is lies. A regretful mistake in the past constantly leaves him to feel lonely.

Kenneth Ma (馬國明) as Senior Inspector Ting Ho-yin, who is chosen for his skill in collecting intel. As leader of the Criminal Intelligence Bureau, Ting knows the ways of the street. He has an easy-going personality. During a mission he accidentally injures a fellow police officer, causing him to develop a fear of firearms.

Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) as Au-yeung Man-yee, a fashion designer who tires to set herself apart from her triad father. She is Lok Sir’s love interest.

Kelly Cheung (張曦雯) as Jean Au, an English spy who takes up the identity of an office worker at a PR firm.

Jacky Cai (蔡潔) as Mo Yat-man, a CIB probationary inspector who collects intel for A Team. She specializes in codes and hacking.

Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) as Yan Ting, Yin’s wife.

Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) as Commissioner of Police Paul Poon, who creates the A Team.

Jennifer Yu (余香凝) as Senior Inspector Yu Ka-lam, who brings her knowledge working with the Identification Bureau to the A Team.

    i find it funny how that foreign guy’s on the poster and no one knows who he is. didn’t a former employee complain that they couldn’t even get their names on the poster after so many years?

      He’s a veteran Hollywood actor. I believe that automatically places him above everybody else at TVB. Less to do with the color of his skin. There were a few white folks at TVB in the past that never made it on the posters either.

        Is he famous? Some of his most recent work include Guardian of the Galaxy, The Hobbit movies and Captain Avenger.

        You guys need to broaden your horizons.

        since your horizon is so board, could you name him instead of referring him as this guy? i watched both movies, do not recall him in either one.

    I liked watching Lee Pace on the TV show Pushing Daisies. It is pretty old, but he was so charming in it. He won an Emmy for that. He is a much better actor then many on that poster. I wonder how the language difference will be portrayed. Hopefully, he won’t be a stereotypical foreign villain.

    I don’t think this is a case of prioritizing the white man. He just stands out because he looks different. The others are all on there too. If he were a two-bit actor, then it would be wrong for him to be there.

      @potatochip omgosh I couldn’t recognize him as the lead from Pusjing Daisies, he’s definitely aged a fair bit since. But I agree that he was really charming in it!

    I think it’s moreso the way they put Lee on the poster that makes him stand out like a sore thumb… Not so much that cause he’s caucasian.
    At least we have A listers to watch in this drama.
