LOOK: Blood Will Spill in the Return of ‘Kingdom’ on Netflix this March

Counting down the days until March 13, when the beloved South Korean series, Kingdom, makes its resounding return on Netflix. The hype continues and the war against the undead intensifies as the series primers and promotional materials have piqued the interest of its loyal viewers.

The series has been well on its way to etching an unmistakable mark even before it started streaming on the global platform as it has already scored a season two contract–proof enough of the big trust given to the show before its worldwide domination.

Kingdom, is an engrossing tale on the power struggle between good and evil, set in the Joseon era with the Crown Prince Lee Chang, making a run for his life–protecting not just the honor of his father and his family, but of the entire kingdom he is set to rule. What complicates matters more is that, along the way, the responsibility to overcome an unheard of epidemic falls into his hands as a future leader.

This season, the power-hungry Cho family and Crown Prince Lee Chang risk everything in a bloody battle. Crown Prince Lee Chang stands at the crossroads in the middle of a major storm.

The ever-growing army of the infected sweep over the land and threaten the entire kingdom. But there is no time for despair. Chang is determined to rid his nation of the Cho family. “I will return to Hanyang and assume my rightful place on the throne of Joseon! Are you with me?”

Meanwhile, Seo-bi continues her search for the cause of the plague. The pulse-quickening challenges these characters face are made achievable only through sheer force of will. Standing in resolute opposition to Chang is the Cho family who are determined to secure their hold on the throne from the end of a sword. Chief State Councilor Cho Hak-ju mutters, “That is not the nation that I intend to build.” His ambition to rule Joseon burns at his very soul. The Queen would even exploit the plague to maintain her place on the throne that is meant only for the true King.

Here are some first look at the coming heart-pounding action in the second season of Kingdom.
