Kingdom Season 3 Updates: Netflix has this habit of experimenting with series and movies from around the globe and waits for the responses. But they are never wrong (except for a very few fails). This time they moved towards the Asian countries and gave us the first original South Korean web series, Kingdom, which successfully ran for 2 seasons and now the fans are waiting for the third.
The show is a 2019 political horror thriller, written by Kim Eun-hee and directed by Kim Seong-hun. Kingdom started back on 25 January 2019 and impeccably adapted from the webcomic series The Kingdom of the Gods, which was authored by Kim Eun-hee and drawn by Yang Kyung-il. Season 2 premiered on March 13, 2020. Till now, the reviews have been quite positive with rare complaints.
Renewal Status of Kingdom Season 3
Even though nothing has been announced either by the creators or by Netflix, but given the fanbase of the show, it is expected that they might renew Kingdom for the third season. But we cannot expect it this year and have to wait till the middle or end of 2021.
The Plot of Kingdom Season 3
With a backdrop of the Joseon period, the Kingdom goes on to explore the story of Crown Prince Lee Chang, after the Japanese invaded Korea. Lee Chang discovers a mysterious political conspiracy plotted while he goes on to find the reasons of a weird widespread plague.
Shocked by his father’s illness, the King of Joseon, Chang takes the burden of digging up dark secrets behind the illness. The first season made Chang come across various people, bodyguard Mu-Yeong, physician Seo-Bi, Yeong-Shin, who all met the same fate and struggling to cope up with the plague.
But it was not any general, everyday illness- this plague was turning the deads into blood-thirsty monsters. But they did not give up, and the second season continues with their fight against the plague. Lee Chang eventually gets stuck between saving the dynasty and dealing with the political tantrums. Thats what the season 3 will address: Will Lee Chang be able to save his city from the debacle and himself from the political traps?
What Critics have to Say?
The scriptwriting is to the point and strung the plot perfectly. Many compared the series to those of Hollywood zombie series and movies and said the Korean one did better. But on the other hand, any argued that the end of season 2 couldn’t keep with the glory of the first season. In the end, everyone wants a renewal.
