The warriors from the MMA drama series Kingdom are stepping back into the cage for a third season of blood, sweat and tears.

The authenticity of the show is what makes it so great because it takes the viewer on a deeper journey into the life of an MMA fighter. Not only does the life of a fighter consist of vigorous training and discipline but there is a mental side to it. The side in which the outside world doesn’t see. The physical pain, the mental strain and the effects it can have on a fighter and how it can take a toll on family and friends.

All this is best encapsulated in Byron Balasco’s hit TV series.

The Plot:

Kingdom” is a gritty drama set against the backdrop of the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Frank Grillo stars as Alvey Kulina, an MMA legend and owner of a Venice, California based gym called Navy St. with the help of Lisa Prince (Kiele Sanchez). He is willing to go to extraordinary measures to ensure his fighters are taken care of, but this can come at a steep price. His sons and the second generation of fighters are played by Nick Jonas as Nate, Alvey’s prize-fighter son and Jay (Jonathan Tucker) who are both struggling with their own identities and places within Alvey’s life and MMA. Ryan wheeler (Matt Lauria) is a world-class athlete who had, and then lost, it all.
