Kingdom season 3 is following the Alliance Arc from the manga. It is based on the events following the Battle of Bayou.
Previous episodes showed the beginning of the war with Fei Xin forces charging towards Qin. Kingdom manga is one of the only few mangas which did not get delayed yet.
The anime, however, has succumbed to the wrath of the ongoing pandemic.
Kingdom’s production committee announced on their website on Sunday that episode 5 and later episodes are being delayed. Episode five was supposed to air on May 3.
Unfortunately, many anime series are getting delayed due to no production amidst this pandemic lockdown. Not only new seasons, but ongoing seasons are having a hiatus as well.
Recently, Major 2nd was also delayed, and now it is time for Kingdom anime.
Official Press Release
Thank you for your continued support and viewing of the TV anime “Kingdom.”
