Is The Last Kingdom Season 5 of Netflix Really The Final Chapter?

The Last Kingdom Season 5

The Last Kingdom is going to conclude with Season 5. The show is an adaptation of Bernard Cornwell’s historical book series ‘The Saxton Stories’ that emphasizes the birth of England. The story of The Last Kingdom revolves around the fictional character of Uhtred(Alexander Dreymon), while the name and events were influenced by the real-life character Uhtred The Bold. The story of The Last Kingdom focuses on the war between the Kingdom of Wessex and Viking incursions.

Nigel Merchant, the executive producer, said in a statement that looking at the wide and loyal fanbase, the makers have decided to give the viewers a chance to witness Uhtred on his epic hunt of survival.

The Last Kingdom Season 5 Synopsis

Since he was a boy, Uhtred has been at odds with his Saxon predecessors and the Vikings who raised him, and the war between the kingdoms is mirrored in his internal wars with his bloodline and his family’s identity. In the fifth season, directed by Dreymon, the series will feature Patrick Robinson as Father Benedict, a religious man with a troubled history, and Sonya Cassidy as Eadgifu, a smart and downright Saxon who arrives in Winchester. Alexander Dreymon has stated that playing Uhtred has been a joyful journey.

Uhtred will train King Edward’s son, Aethelstan, in the art of war in Season 5. According to Deadline, Uhtred will “have to face down his greatest rival and suffer his greatest defeat,” so it won’t be easy.

The Last Kingdom Season 5 Possible Release Date

The release date of The Last Kingdom Season 5 is not revealed yet as the filming is under process, according to Deadline. Season 5 will consist of ten episodes, which should allow for plenty of suspense and action between the Saxons and Vikings.

The Last Kingdom premiered on BBC Two before Netflix bought the rights in 2018. While some fans may be disheartened that The Last Kingdom is coming to an end, the show has been running for a long time. Including season 5, the series will have a total of 46 episodes, which is particularly remarkable given how often Netflix cancels shows after season three.

The show is based on the 9th and 10th series of The Saxton stories and like seasons 3 and 4, it will also consist of 10 episodes. It will be fascinating to see what the creators of The Last Kingdom have planned for Uhtred. The other new characters are likely to play significant roles as well, but it’s unclear how much they will play in the plot. Season 5 of The Last Kingdom should hopefully carry the series to a satisfactory end.
