AT&T’s Audience Network, which airs on U-verse and DIRECTV, will cancel Kingdom when it finishes its third season this year, writes Entertainment Weekly.
Kingdom stars Jonathan Tucker, Matt Lauria and Nick Jonas as Martial Arts fighters who navigate the ring, and life, in Venice, California. (Trust me, life is an even greater challenge in Venice.) Frank Grillo also stars as the owner of the Navy St. gym where the fighters train.
Entertainment Weekly posts a joint statement from the Audience Network and the studio which produced the show, but does not offer a reason for the cancellation of Kingdom which was generally praised by critics.
The final season will begin on May 31.
“We are looking forward to the upcoming third and final season of Kingdom, which premieres on May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on AT&T Audience Network. We expect season three to be a great one and appreciate the hard work and dedication from creator and showrunner Byron Balasco, as well as the entire cast and crew. We could not be more proud to have worked with all of them on such an amazing series,” the statement reads.
Kingdom’s third and final season will also be available on DIRECTV Now, the new live streaming service owned by AT&T.
