In Season 3, Kanan finds himself grappling with the very notions of right and wrong. Good and evil. Fidelity and disloyalty. And he’s not alone. Every member of the Thomas family must confront an existential crisis that challenges their very identity. Whether it’s Marvin, who’s still trying to redeem himself or Raq, who’s finally coming clean, or Lou, who’s wrestling with his own evil, or Jukebox, who’s simply trying to break free from her family’s pathology, they are all attempting to redefine and reinvent themselves. They won’t all be able to complete this intensely personal quest, but for those who do, the destination may reveal the most terrifying secret. There is no right and wrong or good and evil. There are no absolutes. In the end, there’s just you.
Raising Kanan also stars Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Hailey Kilgore, Joey Bada$$, Shanley Caswell, Tony Danza and Antonio Ortiz. Joining Yen as new additions this season is Wendell Pierce, Erika Woods and Grantham Coleman.
Most recently, Yen had a guest star recurring role on the Hulu mini-series Little Fires Everywhere, working alongside Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon. Other TV credits include The Rookie, MacGyver, Black Jesus, Magnum P.I., How to Get Away With Murder, Bosch, Silicon Valley and Young Sheldon.
In theater, he played the lead in Qui Nguyen’s Vietgone which earned him an LA Drama Critics Circle’s Best Lead Actor nomination in 2018.
Yen is repped by CESD and Authentic Talent & Literary Management.
