TV show description:
This gritty family drama revolves around the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and is set in a small family gym in Venice, California.
Alvey Kulina (Frank Grillo) owns and operates Navy St. MMA — a down and dirty storefront gym/do jo. A beloved MMA legend, he is a man of big appetites who came up in a savage world, when MMA was closer to human cockfighting than a mainstream sport. He is a true warrior, carved on the Mt. Rushmore of MMA, but he doesn’t have a dime to show for it.
He is in love with Lisa Prince (Kiele Sanchez), his girlfriend and business partner. She’s an extraordinary woman who’s always honest with him. She runs the gym with military precision, always looking for ways to keep it afloat. Years ago, Lisa met an MMA star named Ryan Wheeler. They fell in love and she fell into the world of fighting. When Ryan crashed and burned and tore down Lisa’s life, Alvey was there to pick her up.
Charming and intelligent, Ryan (Matt Lauria) is a former three-time, All-American wrestler and a world-class athlete. Four years ago, Ryan was on top of the world — until he landed in prison. When he shows up at Alvey’s gym after his release, he is a changed, humbled man. Despite the risks, Alvey sees the return of a superstar fighter as an opportunity that can change the fortune of his struggling gym.
While trying to keep his business afloat, Alvey is also trying to repair his fragile relationships with his sons. Jay (Jonathan Tucker) is the prized fighter at the gym and a bit of a loose cannon who likes to party a too hard. Youngest son Nate (Nick Jonas) is an up and comer in the world of MMA. He’s always looked up to his older brother but is his polar opposite; reserved, disciplined, and dedicated.
Christina Kulina (Joanna Going) is Alvey’s estranged wife, and mother to his sons. She is an engaging and beautiful woman, undone by mental illness and drug abuse. Her eldest son Jay blames Alvey for turning his back on his Christina, while her youngest son Nate barely remembers her.
Episode #40 — Lie Down in the Light
Alvey’s comeback fight couldn’t come at a worse time as Navy St. comes to grips with recent events. Roles are reversed when Ryan coaches Alvey, and Lisa begins a new chapter.
First aired: August 2, 2017.
What do you think? Do you like the Kingdom TV show? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?
I have never done this before but I am so disappointed that the writers ended Kingdom when they did. There should be another season for this show with some more closure. It was the best show I’ve ever watched with a horrible ending
why has it been cancelled its the best show ever
Please don’t stop this one. It’s the best in a long time! Waiting for season 4!!
YOU CANT CANCEL THE SHOW!!!!!!! ITS THE BRST SHOW NETFLIX PUT ON AIR!!!!!! Please DONT CANCEL IT
This is one of my favourites tv series!jay kulina nailed it really good man season 4 pls…..Navy St.
I’m a little late but another season would have have been great. Awesome show, really great cast. Cried pretty through the entire last episode. Ugh…what an emotional ride. The show, one for the books for sure.
This is THE BEST series I’ve seen in a very long time !!! It’s so disgusting that every time they make a GREAT series it ends. I know we’re in 2020 but it’s my first time seeing it. It was a great ride !!! I’d love for it to come back with s season 4

No it shouldn’t have canceled I thought it was a great show I am a woman and still loved it. Ithad a little bit of everything for everybody.
I agree. I love this show. It has so many lessons for modern times.
There are probably a handful of shows that have actually become an epic status quo for television. Most of those are gone, because the story was finalized and completely told; or the ratings weren’t there (Much of the audience that views these shows, don’t seem to catch onto them until the 2nd/3rd season.) Kingdom is one of these shows, and whatever the reason, it’s fallen into the list of addictive series’ that go away before they’ve gotten their full head of hair. The show should be renewed for certain; I do believe that if they decided to shoot the 4th,… Read more »
Absolutely bring it back. Why are all of these amazing series being cancelled. I looked forward to watching every episode of Kingdom so my crazy ass life seemed somewhat abnormally normal. Please bring this show back. These fighters and actors are amazing. What does the audience have to do to get you to bring this show back on the ******* air where it belongs??????
Yes bring it back idiots. Bring back Newsroom to HBO too. WTF? Why do good shows get cancelled and crap goes on and on.
You should of have never cancelled the show! It was an awesome show! I loved all the actors and the roles they played please bring it back to television!!
This show should be picked up by HBO,Netflix, Showtime.
One of the greatest shows on tv today. Its a shame it was on such a lame network.
