Kingdom Season 4 is all set for its launch in 2022! This news was revealed by the official studio itself so we know for a fact that it is not a rumor. Well, that’s a relief for the fandom! History buffs gear up because the 4th season is coming to blow minds with its spectacular screenwriting and addition of new characters. To know more regarding the upcoming anime, continue reading the article!
The anime series revolves around two orphans, Xin and Piao. And their complicated lives. Both of them have worked in the village of the Kingdom of Qin. Due to some strange series of events Xin and Piao both scheme to help Ying Zheng in becoming the king.
This is how Xin becomes involved in the military and aims to become one of the best of his kind in China. But does he prove this to be true? Well, that is for the anime to tell! So, in case you still haven’t watched the series you should stream it on Funimation. All first 3 seasons are available there.
Yasuhira Hara also talked about the upcoming season in an interview. In his wise words:
“A sequel to the live-action film Kingdom is in the works! Thanks to the fact that more people than we could have imagined watched the first film, it has led to the sequel. Thank you so much! I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in the lengthy screenplay conference this time as well.
Ouki said to Shin, ‘Let’s meet on the battlefield.’ It’s going to be a solid portrayal of that world. I believe that people will enjoy the battlefield and drama that will remain in the history of Japanese films on a larger scale than the previous film. The release is still some time away, but please, everyone, I hope you’re looking forward to it.”
Moreover, Kingdom 4th Season is not the only upcoming content of 2022! Instead, there is also a movie in its production phase, but we barely have any details regarding it. So, we’ll have to remain patient for this one.
Kingdom Season 4 Release Date
Kingdom Season 4 will premiere on 9th April 2022! It was announced on the official website as well as their Twitter account. We are not sure if the English Dub of the 4th season will be available on Funimation following its premiere but the past 3 seasons are available for streaming on the site. So, hopefully, it will be the same case with the upcoming season as well.
Kingdom Season 4 Cast
The following are the confirmed voice-cast members and their respective characters:
- Masakazu Morita as Shin (Li Xin)
- Jun Fukuyama as Ei Sei (Ying Zheng)
- Yoshimasa Hosoya as Ou Hon (Wang Ben)
- Rie Kugimiya as Ka Ryo Ten (He Liao Diao)
Kingdom Season 4 Plot
The third season got stretched unusually long due to the disturbed airing schedule. But now as the episodes will be consistent you can expect a smooth transition.
The show is based on a manga series about the rich history of China. But the plot twist is that even though it displays historical characters, the stories are all made up! Which has led to a lot of confusion in the past too.
The third season of Kingdom focused on Kyou Kai’s Revenge Arc. So we are assuming that Kingdom Season 4 will continue from “Conspiracy in the Court”. Especially the events of the Coalition army which had a major impact on the people of China for many years to come. Besides that, you can also expect the 4th season to have Ei Sei’s coming of age ceremony!
But according to some theories, the 4th season might focus more on the struggles in the court instead of the wars. As much as it sounds off plot this might even be true! However, as these are just speculations we can’t be completely sure about it.
Kingdom Season 4 Trailer
The release date of the 4th season was announced via a visual trailer! So, you can stream it on YouTube. Plus there is other footage content as well hence make sure that you don’t miss out on anything!
