Kingdom Season 3 Trailer
The trailer of this show has already been released. One thing which blew the mind of the audience was the art and cinematography. This has changed. The Trailer has all the specifics of the war that Qin will likely face. Since the first two seasons have been already published, there were many similar faces from these seasons. There are not a massive gap between the earlier trailer and the trailer released now. The trailer has covered the war between combined powers and Qin.

Kingdom Season 3 Storyline
Season 3 will resume with the 5th episode since it ceased amid the covid pandemic. The story could revolve around several types of wars in the show happening till they reach the objective of Unifying China. Once Qin and Zhao have allied, we can observe some revelations of big secrets and betrayals too.
Without a doubt, Kingdom manga includes a far large fan base compared to its anime. Season 3 could largely revolve around Coalition Invasion Arc, as noticed from preceding episodes. This is one of the most awaited arcs from the sequence. If this is portrayed with a suitable storyline, songs, and artwork, the anime could gather a huge fan base in a short time.
