A drama series that received critical acclaim along with a small but loyal following will wrap it up after three seasons. In a joint statement, DirecTV and Endemol Shine Studios announced plans to pull the plug on “Kingdom.”
“We are looking forward to the upcoming third and final season of ‘Kingdom,’ which premieres on May 31 at 8 p.m. on AT&T Audience Network,” the companies said in the announcement. “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 show stars Frank Grillo, Kiele Sanchez, Matt Lauria, Jonathan Tucker, Nick Jonas, Joanna Going and Natalie Martinez. Season three of the series, which tracks the activities of a group of MMA fighters based in Venice, Calif., will consist of 10 episodes.
The cancellation was first reported by Entertainment Weekly.
