Netflix’s new series will feature a lesbian romance.

The upcoming Kung Fu series Wu Assassins is set to hit the streaming giant this August and Netflix released a new trailer which reveals there will be a same-sex love story throughout the new series.

Although only brief, we see glimpse of Katheryn Winnick’s character Christine kissing another character.

The series follows Kai Jin (Iko Uwais), a young Chinatown chef in present day San Francisco, who becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad’s pursuit of the deadly ancient powers known as the Wiu Xing.

Kai reluctantly becomes the Wu Assassin after an encounter with a mystical spirit and uses his martial arts skills to recover five supernatural powers from modern day criminals who threaten to use them to destroy the world.

Wu Assassins is set to land on Netflix from August 8 and you can watch the trailer below:
