Vanishing Son

Show Summary

VANISHING SON was a short-running action-packed TV series, created after 4 made-for-TV movies aired in 1994.

Russell Wong starred as Jian-Wa Chang, a musician who escaped with his brother Wago to the USA, after being involved in a student demonstration against the government. The two brothers started a new life---Jian-Wa pursued his music, while Wago turned to crime.

After the 4 movies, in which Wago was killed, Jian-Wa was blamed for the murder and now, in the series, Jian-Wa will become a fugitive, a warriar, who will use his best assets to defend his name and bring his nemesis known as "The General" to justice.

The show was cancelled after 13 episodes aired.

  • You can watch the series on Encore:

    The Vanishing Son series was one of my favorite shows when I was younger. It was one of very few series that I actually remembered to tape every week. Russel Wong has been in many movies since then and has never been a let down. After sixteen years we can finally enjoy reruns on the Encore channel! I was ecstatic about this and just had to write a review to support the show and share with the rest of you. The show definitely deserves to be back on the air. Here's hoping they release a DVD some day. Check it out:

  • Underrated show!

    I watched this show and the four tv movies while

    I was in college part time and I liked it

    Very much and too bad that it didn't last that long

    As I wished that it did. It was about a young

    Asian-American man who tried to flee from the feds as one of them doubts his guilt.

    He tries to fit into American life. Great show as I wished would have had a longer life on tv.moreless
