Three Kingdoms (2010) poster
Three Kingdoms is the latest Chinese television series based on Luo Guanzhong's novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The series is directed by Gao Xixi and features a total of 95 episodes. The Yellow Turban Rebellion and the Ten Attendants Battle will be skipped, thus the series starts with the Anti-Dong Zhuo campaign, precisely at Cao Cao's failed assassination on Dong Zhuo. It will end shortly after Sima Yi's death, skipping Jiang Wei's Fourth Invasion and the fall of the Empires.


Three Kingdoms tells us the story of Luo Guanzhong's Romance of the Three Kingdoms in a rather unique way. Unlike the 1994 TV series which mainly tries to re-tell the events from the novel, the 2010 TV series focusses more on how the characters went through all the battles and events described in the novel. This results in more dialogue and more emotions.
