Kung Fu Season 1's central villain was Zhilan, who popped up sporadically throughout the season.

If you watch Kung Fu online, you know Nicky defeated her nemesis.

However, Yvonne Chapman will be back as a series regular this season, meaning fans will be getting a lot more Zhilan.

Kung Fu Season 1 was a strong performer for The CW, averaging 961,000 viewers and a 0.13 rating in the demo.

"We are beyond proud to continue to share the stories of Nicky Shen and Courtney Whitmore, two strong, powerful young women at the center of this new generation of hit shows for The CW in Kung Fu and DC's Stargirl, said CW chairman Mark Pedowitz when the show was picked up alongside Stargirl.

"While each boasts remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, Kung Fu and Stargirl have not only treated fans to some visually stunning action and high-flying heroics, but they also both strike very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at their core, and we are so excited to see what happens next."
