Plot Details for Season 4 of Kung Fu
There are no concrete details yet when it comes to season four of Kung Fu. But it’s like the new season will focus on Nicky and Henry’s relationship.
This is what series executive producer Robert Berens had to say during his interview with KSiteTV rep Craig Byrne.
“What we love about where we leave Nicky and Henry is that I think they both love each other, and they both see a potential future with each other. But I think Nicky realizes at the end of the season in kind of an epiphany… you know, it all happens very quickly… she has a lot of living left to do. We talked a lot in the room about what led Nicky to run away from home in the first place. Those needs for adventure for being out in the world… were those satisfied by her time in the monastery, by coming home? And so as much as she loves her family, as much as she loves Henry and has come back around to him, their relationship, and their original spark, there’s still a need for her to explore the world on our own terms and her own two feet.
More or less everyone in her family is safe and happy and everyone is kind of a hero with their own destinies and journeys ahead of them, and she’s realizing that “if not now, when?” It’s actually time for her to go out and explore the world on her own, and I think Henry understands that too. It also brought us full circle to the miscommunication – was it a breakup, or was it not? – at the end of Season 2. This is kind of Nicky and Henry saying goodbye to each other honestly and directly. It isn’t fueling drama, but it’s actually just giving the opportunity for them both to grow as individuals out in the world.”
