    Yay for fans of this Kingdom. Not so fun for fans of the Stephen Fry Kingdom variety.

    • ComeOn says:

      Oh good. So I was not the only one getting confused every time Kingdom was mentioned. Wish Stephen Fry acts more often.

  2. Miranda says:

    I haven’t caught this new show yet but I think Frank Grillo is a beast and am happy to see him work whether on the small screen or cool action roles like Capt America 2 and Warrior.

  3. The Beach says:

    Jonathan Tucker is so good as the bad son. And I agree with Miranda: Frank Grillo is a beast, a really, really hot beast.

  4. Bwhit says:

    Great news, this is an awesome show. I love the character Matt Lauria plays, Ryan… There is so much to tell from his standpoint. I’m not sure of the actor’s name that plays Jay, but he is excellent too.

  5. lilian says:

    Goodness gracious me, Nick Jonas….yum

  6. Candice says:

    I need to finish the first episode.

  7. Doug says:

    I wasted an hour watching the first episode.

  8. Dan says:

  9. rita says:

    Awesome show ty for the renew!!

  10. Amanda says:

    I am so relieved to know Kingdom will have more seasons. Completely addicted to this show. The characters personalities just drew me in. Love it!!!

  11. Adriana says:

    Are they going to have a season 2?

    • Jessica says:

      The got picked up for 20 more episodes. If the season is 10 episodes that means they got picked up for at least two more seasons

  12. tang wu says:

    The cast DESERVES op awards for over the top excellence in acting. EACH actor has set the bar so high that “regular” A-List actors look almost “lame”!!! “Ryan Wheeler is gorgeous as well. “Jay” reveals layers of his character seamlessly. Nick Jonas “says” VOLUMES with silence. “Christina” is better than Streep/Chastain for sure better than Blanchett!! On and on. CAN’T wait for next SIX (??!!) Seasons!!

    • kelbel says:

      I completely agree with you. I was blown away at how Nick speaks volumes without even saying anything. For a person coming from Broadway you would think he would be over acting. Instead he says it all with micro expressions. This show and the actors should be nominated for some awards. Would Emmy awards be the proper ones? They are tv right?

  13. Christina Vale says:

    This is a promising show. I was immediately drawn in! Jonathan is such an incredible actor, truly magnificent as Jay Kulina. At first i had my doubts about Nick Jonas playing Nate however when i saw the first episode, i immediately understood why he got the role. Frank Grillo is also a remarkable actor, his character has so many layers and the way he has potrayed him thus far has been impeccable. Matt Lauria as Ryan Wheeler? what more can you ask for. Not only is he such a versatile and diverse actor he is amazing to look at! … All these men as well as woman (Lisa and Christina) are amazing, just an awesome cast with such incredible talent. I hope to see many seasons come out of this tv show. It should most definitely be nominated for a few Golden Globes!

  14. kelbel says:

    I like how Nick was just a player on the show but now it’s staring Nick Jonas because he absolutely killed it. I cannot wait for season 2!

  15. Li says:

  36. Mgio says:

    I never thought I would watch MMA anything but this show has completely won me over with it’s incredible cast and superior Emmy quality writing, AUD is fast becoming one of my favorite channels. Renew this Monster of talent, nothing else like it, Direct TV is beginning to be worth the money.

  37. Bill says:

    If they start production in Spring of 2015–When do they expect Season 2 to air?

    Can’t wait to see season 3 when does it start up again??? Love Kiele SANCHEZ in anything she does. Think the show should be more recognized for the acting they do. Awesome
