The Big Picture

  • American Born Chinese has been cancelled by Disney+ after one season due to low viewership numbers.
  • Producers are looking for a new home for the series but it is uncertain if Jin Wang can complete his mission as a hero.
  • Ben Wang played the show’s hero, Jin, alongside Michelle Yeoh, Daniel Wu, and Ke Huy Quan.

Jin Wang’s (Ben Wang) journey won’t reach its full potential, as American Born Chinese has been canceled at Disney+ after one season, according to Variety. The adaptation of Gene Luen Yang‘s graphic novel premiered on the streaming platform last summer, but low viewership numbers didn’t allow the studio to move forward with a second installment. The producers behind the project will attempt to find a new home for the series after today’s cancelation, and time will tell if Jim will be able to complete his mission as a hero, or if this truly means the end for American Born Chinese.

A second season of American Born Chinese would’ve resolved the cliffhanger established in the first season’s finale, where Jim returned to his house only to find that his parents were missing. Princess Iron Fan (Poppy Liu) asked him to join her if he ever wanted to see his parents again, setting the stage for the boy’s next adventure. Unfortunately, Jim actually might not be able to rescue his parents, with their fate left as a mystery with the cancelation of the show. Nevertheless, Jim was only starting to master his powers after a strange visit changed his life forever.
