A little more than a week after the show’s premiere on DirecTV, the original drama series “Kingdom” has received a 20-episode renewal, Variety reports.
“Production on the Endemol Studios series is to begin next spring on 10 episodes to air next fall, with the following 10 slated to air in 2016,” the story reports. “The satcaster is loading up on ‘Kingdom’ even as it prepares for its merger with AT&T, which could bring major changes to DirecTV over the long term.”
“Kingdom” is about mixed martial arts practitioners who live in the Venice area of Los Angeles, and stars Nick Jonas, Frank Grille and Kiele Sanchez. Its creator and showrunner is Byron Balasco.
