The Last Kingdom has made a comeback recently, and the fans aren’t ready for the series to end any time soon. The Last Kingdom is a British historical fiction series based on Bernard Cornwell’s series of novels known as The Saxon Stories. The first season of the series was aired on October 10, 2015, on BBC America, and BBC Two in the UK on October 22, 2015.
The story revolves around Uhtred Ragnarson, who was a born Saxon. He was kidnapped by the raiding Danes who raised him to be a warrior since he was 11 years old.
How many seasons of The Last Kingdom will be there?
As mentioned above, the series initially released on BBC America and BBC Two, three seasons of the series were released on the same platform, but until the release of the fourth episode, the series shifted to Netflix.
The fans were very happy with the news of the renewal of the series for the fifth time in July 2020. No official date is announced until now, but we hope to hear soon from the show-makers.
The series is based on the history of the Saxons, and the audience is waiting patiently to witness the upcoming storyline. Though, some gist of the story can be taken from the novels that the story is based upon. However, certain twists in the plot are different from the novel’s storyline, so, there is nothing to presume about the upcoming season.
The fans will be happy to hear that there are three more books left to be covered by Bernard Cornwell, with the release of the 13th book in October 2020. However, in March 2020, the author stated that the 13th book will be the final novel in the series. Do not get disappointed as there will be at least one more season of the show after season five.
Stephan Butchard mentioned in his Facebook post, “Bernard Cornwell fans, the time has come, we are delighted to reveal the title for the final book in The Last Kingdom series “War Lord” coming October 15, 2020”.
Fans were certainly disappointed with the news, but they also appreciated the show-runners for their hard work. Let us wait for the conclusion of the show with full enthusiasm.
