‘Kingdom’ To End After Completion Of Third Season
It was announced Saturday that DirecTV’s Kingdom will be canceled after the completion of the show’s third season.
Kingdom, which stars Frank Grillo, Jonathan Tucker, Nick Jonas, Kiele Sanchez, Matt Lauria, and Joanna Going, tells the story of an MMA trainer, his sons, and the fighters they train together in Venice, California. It premiered on DirecTV in 2014.
It was announced in July of 2016 that Kingdom will be picked up for a third, 10-episode season, and as such, the announcement of its cancelation comes as somewhat of a surprise.
DirecTV and Endemol Shine Studios released a joint statement commenting on Kingdom‘s cancelation.
“We expect season three to be a great one and appreciate the hard work and dedication from creator and showrunner Byron Balasco, as well as the entire cast and crew. We could not be more proud to have worked with all of them on such an amazing series.”
The third season of Kingdom begins on May 31 at 8 p.m. EST on AT&T Audience Network.
Nick Jonas, who has become less involved with his music career as he becomes more involved in acting, is set to appear in the upcoming Jumanji reboot.
