Netflix is unveiling an action-packed first look at its family drama series The Brothers Sun, which is set to arrive on the streamer at the start of the new year on Thursday, January 4.

The behind-the-scenes look pulls back the curtain on Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu’s exciting series which stars Oscar-winner Michelle Yeoh as Eileen, mother to Charles “Chairleg” Sun (Justin Chien) and his naive younger brother Bruce (Sam Song Li). The mother and sons come together when Charles and Bruce’s father, who happens to be the head of a powerful Taiwanese triad, is shot by a mystery assassin.
