Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is fast gaining popularity in our country, Several live fights of International fighter have grace us and it seems MMA fans can’t get enough. I have also noticed that even kids are into it which shows with the games they play on their tablets.
If you’re one of them then RTL CBS Extreme HD has something in store for you - The second season of the mixed martial arts (MMA) action-drama, KINGDOM, premieres on 22 October, Thursday at 10:00pm (9:00pm JKT/BKK).
Set in Venice, California, KINGDOM looks at the MMA world rife with complex characters and relationships that unfurl in surprising and deeply human ways. The show stars Frank Grillo (Zero Dark Thirty, The Grey) as Alvey, Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) as Ryan, Jonathan Tucker (The Black Donnellys) as Jay, new cast member Natalie Martinez (Under The Dome) as Alicia; and popular singer-actor Nick Jonas as Nate.
In the first season’s finale, we saw Nate struggling with the life he was living; and in his aim to be a bigger fighter, taking human growth hormones. Star fighter, Ryan “The Destroyer,” went back into the cage for the first time in five years and Jay also returns to the ring. KINGDOM‘s sophomore run begins with Ryan “The Destroyer” defending his title and Jay finding a new obsession, while Alvey’s improved fortune has led to a bigger gym, but also a bigger appetite for risk. Nate’s determination to get back in the cage causes rifts with his family and complicates his self-identity.
KINGDOM’s season 2 sees the introduction of a promising female fighter, Alicia, who packs a lot of upsides both in and out of the cage. Lured to Los Angeles, she uses her desirability and relentless drive to get whoever and whatever she wants.
