Now the series is getting ready to capitalize on all of this with a return for its fourth season later this Spring, and has revealed some more crucial info as to what to expect.
The fourth season of the series will be featuring a new opening theme titled “Rei -ray-” as performed by Suiren, and a new ending theme titled “Genyo” as performed by Haku. Together with the announcements of the new opening and ending themes for the season, Kingdom has dropped a new poster for Season 4 that teases the kind of intensity fans will get to see play out over the course of the new episodes.

Releasing on April 9th in Japan, the fourth season of Kingdom will feature the returning cast of Masakazu Morita as Shin, Jun Fukuyama as Ei Sei, and Yoshimasa Hosoya as O Hon. Production staff is still being kept a mystery, but you can presume that it will feature the staff from the third season (which ended up having some notable shake ups of its own during that production) as they take on the season for St.Signpost and Pierrot.
If you wanted to catch up to the series thus far, the first three seasons of Kingdom are now streaming with Funimation. They officially describe the series as such, “A nameless boy and a young king have grown up in a nation plagued by war. The boy, Xin, has countlessly proven himself on the battlefield, and although initially starting on bad terms, he and the young king, Zheng, have become comrades. Zheng wishes to bring all the warring states under Qin, while Xin climbs the ranks to become a Great General. Both of their ambitions will change history forever.”
