We’re getting closer to the third and final season of Wu-Tang: An American Saga. Set in the early 90s, as seen in the trailer above, this season will see the group members at a climax following the release of their breakout debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers.
In the two-minute clip we see everything from the group embarking on a tour to certain members crafting their solo projects outside of the Wu (such as Raekwon’s Purple Tape), all while dealing with their own personal concerns and matters.
While basking in their newfound fame and wealth, the Wu-Tang Clan also struggles with the pressure to sustain the success and put out more music that stays true to their brand and their fans. We also see the rappers at odds with each other over the direction in which to take their sound or balancing the group’s music with solo work.
The official synopsis reads:
Off the release of their debut album and their continued rise to fame, we follow the Wu-Tang Clan over the course of their five-year plan as they face and overcome different challenges. While each of the members go on separate journeys to figure out where they fit in the music world, RZA struggles to stay on top of things in order to fulfill the promise he made to his Wu brothers. As money, fame, ego, and business threaten to tear the group apart, they must find a way to come together and cement their legacy.
The Hulu series received its first season in 2019. Ashton Sanders stars as RZA, alongside Shameik Moore as Raekwon, Siddiq Saunderson as Ghostface Killah, Julian Elijah Martinez as Divine Diggs and Caleb Castille as Cappadonna.
The final season of Wu-Tang: An American Saga premieres on Hulu on February 15th.
