The Last Kingdom Season 5 Updates: The Last Kingdom is a British historical fiction tv series adapted from the book The Saxons Stories written by Bernard Cornwell. BBC America made the first season. The Last Kingdom is written by Martha Hillier and produced by Nigel Marchant and Gareth Neame.

This show was originally launched on BBC Two in 2015 before Netflix became its place in 2018. The second season of this show was co-produced by Netflix. Netflix was the only distributor for the third, fourth and fifth season.

This whole tv drama series revolves around a young warrior and outsider, Uhtred Ragnarson on a vicious mission to get back his birthright. The Last Kingdom merges real historical figures and incidents with fiction, reciting the history of King Alfred the Great and his craving to unite the various separate kingdoms into what would become England.

The ending of season 4 comes with a surprise truce and a horrible new feud. After the Danes, led by Sigtryggr and Brida, captures Winchester in King Edward’s absence, it’s up to Uhtred Ragnarson to come up with a plan to save the city.

The Last Kingdom Season 5 Synopsis

The fifth season of The Last Kingdom will include another ten episodes on Netflix, based on books 9 and 10 of The Saxon Stories: Warriors of the Storm and the Flame Bearer. In the fifth season we’re going to see Uhtred Ragnarson realize that his destiny is not just Bebbanburg: it’s tied to the long run of England itself.

Charged with training King Edward’s first-born son Aethelstan as a warrior, Uhtred’s plan will have a fair higher purpose. However, to get this prospect, Uhtred will have to be compelled to face down his biggest enemy and suffer his greatest loss.

No doubt that fans will go anxious about who or what Uhtred may lose within the season to come, because the show hasn’t been afraid to kill beloved characters in the past.

In addition to this, we tend to expect to visualize more on the developing relationship between Uhtred’s daughter Stiorra and enigmatic Viking warrior Sigtryggr, who seems to have a real connection under unlikely circumstances.

Filming is in process in Hungary on the last and final season of The Last Kingdom, which will continue to follow the adventures of Uhtred of Bebbanburg, a warrior born a Saxon but raised as a Dane, in 9th and 10th century England.

There’s no official word yet on when The Last Kingdom season five is going to be released, but we do know that shooting was going well in April 2021 and it aims to be complete by the summertime.
