“KL Gangster is a beloved Malaysian action franchise and we are thrilled to premiere this new breed of local drama.

Conceived and directed by the creators of box-office hit franchises, KL Gangster, Munafik and Abang Long Fadil, KLGU is a spinoff of Skop Productions’ iconic films KL Gangster 1 and KL Gangster 2 and is helmed by established director Faisal Ishak (Juvana).
The story begins soon after the events in KL Gangster 1 – with the feuding gangs in disarray after their ringleaders are either behind bars or dead. In this power vacuum, one mysterious gang member decides to make a break his life of crime, until he unwittingly discovers a shocking truth that threatens to lure him back, one that could herald a new era for all KL Gangsters.
