According to the rumors, the prequel will arrive first before the third season - with Ji Hyun and a whole new cast. Apparently, "it was difficult for the lead actors of the first two seasons of ‘Kingdom’ to immediately start filming for the third season due to scheduling conflicts, so the continuation of their story after season two will probably come in two or three years."
However, a source from Netflix clarified that nothing has been decided yet. "There’s nothing we can confirm as of now, including the lead actors, screenwriter, or director. It hasn’t even been decided whether there will be a prequel or not."
