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.
