“Wu-Tang: An American Saga” has been renewed on Hulu for Season 3, which will also be the last show. The news comes just a week after the season 2 finale of the show, which is based on the true story of the leading rap group. The show is also inspired by the books “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao of Wu”, each of which were co-authored by RZA, a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Set in the height of the crack cocaine epidemic in New York in the early ’90s, the show tracks the formation of the clan, the vision of Bobby Diggs, aka The RZA, who attempts to unite a dozen young, black men who torn between music and crime but eventually rose to become the most unpredictable of American success stories.

In Season 2, Clan becomes disillusioned with life in projects, and Bobby learns that success in the music industry can be the ticket to a better life. But it is not easy for the members of the clan to give up everything to the music. The resentment still runs deep between Dennis, Sha, Power, and Devine, while the other clan members struggle to cope with intercity life. This time, Bobby is dedicated to authenticity, and though he knows he can lead his crew through the challenges of the music business. Clan fractures may prove to be too much to overcome.

The show’s cast includes Ashton Sanders, Shameik Moore, Siddiq Saunderson, Julian Elijah Martinez, Marcus Callender, Zolee Griggs, T.J. Atoms, Dave East, Johnell Young, Uyoata Udi, and Damani Sease. “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” was created by RZA and Alex Tse. The two also serve as executive producers with Method Man and Brian Grazer.
