The franchise was thought finished after the third movie especially since Tucker has moved away from urban comedies and Chan had appeared in less and less Hollywood films. However nine years since the last release, it was soon announced that the series will be rebooted into a [[Series/RushHour TV series]] with a new cast. It aired on CBS on March 31, 2016.

* RecurringElements: Carter's black Corvette and a final battle at a height, where the bad guy falls to his death.
* RedOniBlueOni: Carter and Lee. It is more prominent in the third movie due to Lee wearing dark blue suits and Carter wearing dark red suits. It's TakenUpToElevan when they are using the French flag to escape from the Triad goons; geuss which side Lee and Carter are on.

* DoubleKnockout: It appears this happens towards the end of Rush Hour 2 as Hu-Li stabs Carter through the chest and gets hit by a halberd knocking her out. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Then we find out that counterfeit money Carter kept in his pockets kept the spear from stabbing him]]]].

* DoubleKnockout: It appears this happens towards the end of Rush ''Rush Hour 2 2'' as Hu-Li stabs Carter through the chest and gets hit by a halberd knocking her out. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Then we find out that counterfeit money Carter kept in his pockets kept the spear from stabbing him]]]].



* {{Flanderization}}:
** James Carter went from being a loudmouthed and self centered but sometimes-competent detective in the first movie to being a SmallNameBigEgo that's unable to take anything seriously in the second. The third film kind of mixes the two. And that's not even getting into the UncleTomfoolery.\\
\\
He remains a competent cop throughout the series, however. In the second movie he correctly guesses that the owner of the casino was in league with Ricky Tan ("follow the rich white man") and even manages to last in a fight against Hu-Li. In ''3'' he also is able to find the location of a club (if not by accident) that a mook only gives a vague address of, defeats several Triad bosses (on his own) and rescues Soo Yung (again). It should also be noted that his antics actually get him ''[[RealityEnsues demoted]]'' to traffic duty by number ''3''.
** In the first film, the very first thing we see him doing is mess up the arrest of an arms dealer, blowing up half a city block and getting two officers shot in the process. If anything he gets ''more'' competent as the films go on, not less, as he learns to work with a partner and exercise some degree of self-control.

** When Sang is about to kill Carter in the massage parlor, he throws a handkerchief to him and says "Wipe yourself off. You're bleeding." Later, after killing the man in a shootout at the expo, Carter tosses a handkerchief on him and says: "Wipe yourself off. You dead."
