Kingdom Season 3 Trailer
The trailer of the series has already been released. One thing that blew the mind of the Audience was the art and cinematography. This has really changed. The Trailer has all the details of the war which Qin will shortly face. As the first two seasons are already released, there were many similar faces from those seasons. There is not a large difference between the earlier trailer and the trailer released now. The trailer has covered the war between combined forces and Qin. The music of the show has also been enhanced, and it matches perfectly with the storyline.
Kingdom Season 3 Storyline
Season 3 will resume with the 5th episode as it stopped amid the covid pandemic. The story could revolve around various kinds of wars in the show happening till they reach the goal of Unifying China. After Qin and Zhao have allied, we can see some revelations of big secrets and betrayals too.
No doubt, Kingdom manga has a much large fan base compared to its anime. Season 3 could mainly revolve around Coalition Invasion Arc, as seen from earlier episodes. This is one of the most awaited arcs in the series. If this is portrayed with a proper storyline, music, and art, the anime could gather a very large fan base in a short period of time.
