Back in April, the widespread COVID-19 delays came for Kingdom season 3, which had its fifth episode and beyond delayed. Now, the official website has announced a return time frame, setting the season’s comeback for spring 2021.
Kingdom season 3 originally premiered in Japan on April 5, with Funimation handling the simulcast. The anime is based on the manga by Yasuhisa Hara, which has been running in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine since 2006.
Here’s how Funimation describes the series:
A nameless boy and a young king have grown up in a nation plagued by war. The boy, Xin, has countlessly proven himself on the battlefield, and although initially starting on bad terms, he and the young king, Zheng, have become comrades. Zheng wishes to bring all the warring states under Qin, while Xin climbs the ranks to become a Great General. Both of their ambitions will change history forever.
