Kung Fu: The Legend Continues is an action drama that aired on PTEN and in first-run syndication.

Like his grandfather and namesake from the original TV series, Kwai Chang Caine is a Shaolin priest. Caine was the head of a temple in Northern California, where his son Peter also lived and studied, until the temple was destroyed in a fire caused by a renegade priest who believed the priests would serve better as mercenaries. After the destruction of the temple, each believed the other had perished and went on their separate ways; Caine wandered and traveled, much as his grandfather had, while Peter became a foster child and eventually a police officer. The series begins when Caine comes to fictional Sloanville and ends up in a Chinatown section, where Peter's precinct is, and they are reunited after being separated for 15 years.
