The Brothers Sun, created by Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu, launched Jan. 4 to critical praise, with reviewers hailing Yeoh’s standout performance. While it did not attract a large audience, the series developed a devoted following.

Yeoh starred alongside Justin Chien, Sam Song Li, Joon Lee and Highdee Kuan.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, Chien also praised his co-stars.

“TBS Family forever,” he wrote. “I gave everything I had to this show.”

Described as a dark comedic drama and family soap, The Brothers Sun follows a Taipei gangster, Charles Sun (Chien), who’s settled into his life as a ruthless killer. But when his father is shot by a mysterious assassin, Charles must go to L.A. to protect his mother (Yeoh) and utterly unaware younger brother Bruce (Li).
