Great news everybody!
We're only through with two episodes of the freshman series Kingdom's run, and the show has already been been renewed for another twenty episodes!
Which means the show's been picked up for another two seasons!
The DirecTV MMA drama will start production on this new batch of episodes this spring with ten of the episodes due to come out in Fall 2015 and the other ten episodes arriving the following Fall in 2016!
The series, created by Byron Balasco and produced by Endemol Studios is described as "a gritty family drama set against the backdrop of the renegade subculture of Mixed Martial Arts in Venice, CA" and already has some pretty decent reviews!
The series is aired on the Audience Network and its distributors claim the show "has proven to be one of Audience Network's most popular shows of all time."
Here's what DirecTV's Chris Long said:
"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."
And here's what the CEO of Endemol Studios Philippe Maigret said:
"Getting an additional twenty episodes is a great testament to Kingdom, to Byron's talent as a writer and show runner and to our cast and crew."
The show also stars Nick Jonas who bulked up HARD for the series and looks frickin' fantastic anytime his shirt is popped off.
