Kingdom 05
DirecTV

DirecTV’s newest original show Kingdom has only aired two episodes of its 10-episode first season, and it’s already made its mark on the network.

DirecTV has ordered 20 more episodes of the MMA-centric series from creator Byron Balasco. Although DirecTV hasn’t released ratings, it said in a release that Kingdom “has proven to be one of Audience Network’s most popular shows of all time.”

Production on the new episodes will begin in spring 2015, with the first round of 10 episodes airing that fall. The following 10 episodes will then air in 2016.
