Except for in South Korea, Netflix has become one of the best platforms to watch Korean TV, and one of the most precious jewels in its crown is Kingdom. Along with being a period drama, it is also a zombie show which puts even The Walking Dead to shame when it comes to rabid pacing and genuine scares.
Kim Eun-hee’s Kingdom is an international sensation, and if go by how Season 2 ended, then we know that it won’t be long until Kingdom is officially renewed for more episodes. And if we check the history, Netflix already ordered for Season 2, before Season 1 even started streaming. So, it will be only a matter of time, until the next season drops.
When will Kingdom season 3 start streaming on Netflix?
The first season of Kingdom was premiered in January 2019, and then season two came just over a year later in March 2022. If going by this schedule, we can expect the new episodes to arrive early 2022.
But, we all are aware that the TV industry is facing several delays and setbacks as a direct response of the Corona Virus. On March 15, 2022, Netflix stopped filming of all its originals, and this can also impact Kingdom season 3 later down the line as well.
Keeping this in mind, a potential third season may not arrive until late 2022 at the nearest.
Who will be cast members for season 3?
While we saw a few favourites bit the dust in season two, still we believe several familiar faces will be returning in season three:
Ju Ji-hoon as Crown Prince Lee Chang
Bae Doona as Seo-bi
Ryu Seung-Yong as Cho Hak-Ju
Kim Sung-kyu as Yeong-shin join
In the last scene of Season two, South Korean star Jun Ji Hyun also appeared in a mysterious new role. This also confirms that the Kingdom will return with a third season.
What will Kingdom season 3 be all about?
There is a high possibility that season 3 will pick up right where season two left off. It will begin from seven years and three months after the initial zombie outbreak.
Also, the mysterious plant seller will play a significant role in the future events, but her exact role is yet to be known. Another question is, Does Jun Ji Hyun’s character just want to create chaos everywhere she goes? Or, Is she trying to spread zombie-ism so that China can finally invade and take over a weakened nation?
Whatever happens, we can expect the new Prince to appear more in season 3 too. As a baby, he was always immune to the worms that caused zombie-ism, but now that he’s all grown up, it feels like one of the remaining parasite may have moved up to his brain.
But, that doesn’t necessarily mean the prince will transform into a monster yet. His case has always been extremely unusual, and given how long the worm has already been in his system, the boy can also become some kind of strange, zombie/human hybrid instead.
When can we expect a trailer of Season 3?
We should not expect the trailer to arrive anytime before 2022. It will undoubtedly come near the release time of the series.
Stay safe and keep reading for more updates.
