Just two episodes into its run, DirecTV has renewed martial arts drama Kingdom for 20 additional episodes to serve as Seasons 2 and 3.
Per Deadline, production on Season 2 is slated to begin this spring to air on DirecTV’s Audience Network in fall 2015, with the 10-episode third season slated for 2016.
While DirecTV does not reveal ratings information it said that the freshman drama “has proven to be one of Audience Network’s most popular shows of all time.”
Said Chris Long, DirecTV’s SVP Original Content and Production:
“DirecTV could not be more thrilled by the response that last week’s premiere of Kingdom elicited from both critics and our viewers. The series very clearly resonated with DirecTV’s subscribers.”
