Kingdom Season 3: From release date to plot to cast, here’s everything you need to know about the third season of Netflix’s Korean drama series Kingdom.
South Korean series and movies have gained popularity all over the world thanks to digital platforms. Netflix is a leader when it comes to global content. The digital giant has a huge collection of Korean shows and movies and the best of them is Kingdom. Launched on January 25, 2019, Kingdom is Netflix’s first Korean original series. The series is adapted from the webcomic series The kingdom of the godswritten by Kim Eun-hee and drawn by Yang Kyung-il.
Kingdom, directed by Kim Eun-hee, has received excellent response from audiences around the world. The series’ second season, which premiered on March 13, 2020, was also a huge hit worldwide. Now viewers are waiting for Kingdom season 3. We’re pretty sure it will come sooner or later. Here are our speculations on Netflix Kingdom season 3.
Kingdom season 3 release date and renewal status: when will it be back on Netflix?
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Kim Eun-hee said: “Strangely enough, Kingdom is a series that gives me more energy the more I write about it. The cast and crew all have great chemistry, and there is so much more to tell. If viewers allow it, I’d really love to see it even develop into season 10. “
While there is no official announcement, our sources have revealed that the third season is definitely on the agenda. Season 1 of the Kingdom premiered on January 25, 2019, and season two arrived just over a year later, on March 13, 2020.
The entertainment industry was at a standstill because of the pandemic. Filming movies and shows were hugely affected in 2020 and that’s probably why we haven’t heard anything concrete about Season 3.
We’re pretty sure the series will return for season three as a special bonus episode is in production. Titled ‘Kingdom: Ashin of the NorthIt will explore the character of Gianna Jun, played by Jun Ji-hyun. That has been confirmed Kingdom: Ashin of the North coming to Netflix in 2021. It will be a sequel to Kingdom season two and a backstory about the mysterious character Lee Chang’s group encountered on their journey north to discover the origins of the infected.
At an event in early 2021, Kingdom Director Kim Sung Hoon said, “Kingdom: Ashin of the North [the upcoming special episode] will be a springboard to move beyond Kingdom 3. “
Covid-19 has had a major impact on the production of the third season, meaning we could see the series delayed by at least a few months. The likelihood of Kingdom Season 3 arriving in 2021 looks bleak. The earliest we could expect the series to return to Netflix is 2022.
Kingdom season 3 cast: who will be in it?
In the second season, many cast members fall victim to the plague, so they wouldn’t return.
No announcement has been made regarding season 3. So we would see regular cast members in season 3:
- Ju Ji-Hoon as Crown Prince Lee Chang
- Bae Doona as Seo-bi
- Kim Sung-kyu as Yeong-shin
- Jeon seok-ho as Cho Beom-pa
- Ahn Eun-jin as Mu-yeong’s wife
Kingdom season 3 plot: what will happen next?
In the final scene of the second season, South Korean star Jun Ji Hyun appeared in a mysterious new role. She will play a prominent role next season. Season 3 picks up where Season 2 ended, namely seven years and three months after the first zombie outbreak. It would be interesting to see what Jun Ji Hyun’s character does.
In the same interviews where screenwriter Kim Eun-hee discussed Jun Ji Hyun’s role in Kingdom, she revealed a bit of what we can expect from the third season:
Season one told the story of hunger and season two told the story of blood. If Netflix agrees, I want season three to tell the story of resentment. Season two brought the concept of ‘temperature’ to the fore and I think if the story traveled north, the other ecosystem in the north would act as a hint.
How many episodes are there in Season 3?
Kingdom is an expensive show. The production value is high. While Netflix understands that a longer season is in high demand, there are budget constraints. The first and second seasons each had 6 episodes, and we can see the series return with another six episodes.
We will continue to update this post with the latest news about Kingdom season 3. Would you like a third season of Kingdom? While we wait, you can watch Kingdom seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix.
