The spring 2020 anime series Kingdom will be its third season of the property when it debuts on April 5th, 2020 in Japan. The show has now found itself a simulcast partner as Crunchyroll has announced their pickup of the show. Having previously brought out the first two seasons in bilingual form, we were expecting them to get this. At the moment, they don’t have set premiere dates/times and availability for it.
This season changed up the staffing side as it features Kenichi Imaizumi directing based on the scripts by Noboru Takagi. Hisashi Abe is on board for the character designs with animation production by Studio Signpost.
They join Yuya Uchida as Shun Shin Kun, Miou Tanaka as Kan Mei, and Atsuko Tanaka as Ka Rin. Additional casting includes Daisuke Namikawa as Go Hou Mei (Wu Feng Ming), Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Kou Yoku (Xiang Yi), and Yūto Uemura as Haku Rei (Bai Li).
Check out our review of the second season.

Now, with a target on his back and an army of enemies standing in his way, it will be up to a boy with no name and a young king without a throne to return order to their war-torn country in this historical action-drama based on the Tezuka Award-winning manga.
