The King's Avatar debuted with the pilot episode of their first season on 7th April 2017 and concluded with their finale episode on 16th June 2017. The second season of the series had been anticipated by fans for quite a while and after their long wait, the second season finally dropped on 27th September 2020.
Both the seasons of The King's Avatar were live-streamed and telecasted on the official YouTube channel of Tencent Video.
Between the premiere of two seasons, The King's Avatar also dropped three special OVA episodes from 27th April 2018 and concluded through their third episode on 11th May 2018.
The first few episodes of The King's Avatar second season received outstanding ratings and views from the audience with the view stat of each episode ranging between 600,000 and 1 million views.
However, the ratings of the second season took a sudden dive when the sixth episode of the season was released and the viewing stat gradually started declining.
Some of the final episodes of the second season went as far as being viewed by only three hundred thousand viewers which are considered a low rating.
The possibility of new episodes of The King's Avatar Season 3 depends entirely on the viewership stat and the money the series earned in its last season. Considering the ratings and views of The King's Avatar's second season the likelihood of the production of The King's Avatar season 3 doesn't seem quite likely.
With the pretty noticeable decline of The King's Avatar's second season regarding its views currently we are uncertain about the development of The King's Avatar season 3.
Regardless, rumors have started floating around the internet that the work on The King's Avatar season 3 has already begun and probably is still in the early development stage.
But with no official announcement released by Tencent's we can't say for sure whether these theories have any truth to them.
Pondering over the past schedules of both seasons of the series, we can expect The King's Avatar season 3 to air in April 2022.
As of now, no statement has been made by the series animation studio regarding the characters to feature in The King's Avatar season 3. So we can't say for certain which original voice actor will return for the anime television series third installment. Regardless if the third season does happen then we are likely to see the main characters of the show appear in the show:
The King's Avatar has released two seasons with both seasons comprising of twelve episodes. Between both seasons an OVA special episode was also premiered which consisted of three episodes.
Both the seasons as well the OVA episodes of The King's Avatar can be easily streamed on the international streaming network, Netflix. You can even watch it for free on Tencent's official YouTube channel.
Unfortunately, no trailer has been dropped by the production studio for The King's Avatar season 3.
