Recently there were reports that makers are preparing to launch the prequel series before we get to know what happens after season 2’ ending, the prequel would centre around Jun Ji Hyun’s character and how she became a warrior. According to reports, a source close to the production revealed that, “It was difficult for the lead actors of the first two seasons to immediately start filming for the third season due to scheduling conflicts, so the continuation of their story after season two will probably come in two or three years. We will first be bringing the prequel story, where Jun Ji Hyun will be joined by a mostly-new cast of characters.” However, soon after reports started making rounds on the internet, a Netflix spokesperson came in forward and denied any preparation for season 3, they said, “Nothing has been decided yet on future plans for ‘Kingdom’ There’s nothing we can confirm as of now, including the lead actors, screenwriter, or director. It hasn’t even been decided whether there will be a prequel or not.”
