‘Marco Polo’ Season 3 Latest Updates: Leonard Wu To Replace Benedict Wong? Spin-Off Series In The Works?
“Marco Polo’s” Kublai Khan seems to get away from the spotlight as Leonard Wu’s character is set to take over in Netflix’s historical drama. Interestingly, his featured story is highly rumored to produce a spin-off.
Orus is Kaidu's son who desires he'll be named heir over his sister, Khutulunin. In the second installment of the series, he died during a battle against Khan's (Benedict Wong) army. However, recent updates on season 3 of the controversial show mentioned that Wu is likely to reprise his role. Check the inclusion of Wu's name in the tweet of series' creator John Fusco that teases Wu's remarkable part in the new season.

Another character that might take the lead role is Joan Chen's Empress Chabi. Her utmost importance and strong influence in Khan’s life are eyed to be the reasons as to why she deserve a major role.
Joining the rumor mill as to who will replace Benedict Wong in the highly anticipated season 3 of Fusco’s penned series is Tom Wu. Playing magnificently as Hundred Eyes, the Chinese-British actor was reported to nab his most important role that will take the center stage. The blind monk who skillfully trained Marco Polo was critically acclaimed with a 30-minute special episode last year that featured his origins. Hundred Eyes has showcased his wisdom and abilities as one of the most promising cast members of "Marco Polo".
These speculations rooted when Wong’s hectic schedule surfaced in the web. The British actor is believed to pursue bigger roles in the movie industry, hence, causing production delay in “Marco Polo.” In fact, his incredible performance in "Doctor Strange" sparked theories that he will be leaving the program and that the forthcoming season will see his terrifying death.
While gossips are hard to believe, it would be best to settle for official statements coming from the showrunner and the celebrities involved.
