There’s something about historical dramas that capture an audience. First Game of Thrones and now The Last Kingdom. The latest season premiered on Netflix in March 2022. Between its immersing fight scenes, incorporation of true historical events, and gripping plot, it’s easy to see why fans are already calling out, when do we get season 6?
Will there be a sixth season of The Last Kingdom?
The Netflix series, now in its fifth season, is coming to an end. It was a mixed bag of excitement and sadness when Alexander Dreymon shared this trailer on Instagram just before the season 5 premiere.
One person said, “I don’t want it to end.” To fans, it may come as a surprise that it had been decided from the beginning that the show would end after its fifth season. Based on Bernard Cornwell’s “The Saxon Stories,” the show has always been expected to progress linearly. He had yet to finish all three books of his series when the show premiered in 2015, which included War of the Wolf (2018), Sword of Kings (1919), and War Lord (1921). (2020).
So, what’s next for the characters in The Last Kingdom?
You can rest assured that Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s quest to unite kingdoms will not be over after this defeat. A Netflix adaptation of the final three books of the series, Seven Kings Must Die, will be released in 2017.
When discussing his work in a recent interview with the Radio Times, executive producer Nigel Marchant said: “There is a distinct sense that Season 5 is the end of the TV series, and the movie will be more of a standalone story. Fans of the show will enjoy it, but you don’t have to be familiar with it to enjoy it.”
There will be Season 5 spoilers, so beware!
Season 5 appears to wrap up with Uhtred’s battle for Bebbanburg behind him and his father’s goal of reuniting England insight, but it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. The Saxon Stories’ final three novels will be brought to life for moviegoers. With an enraged monarch and a growing family, Uhtred’s journey is far from over.
When is the Seven Kings Must Die release date?
It only took two months to shoot Seven Kings Must Die, which was completed in March 2022. Between late 2022 and early 2023, the film will be available on Netflix.
Uhtred After the conclusion of The Last Kingdom, Alexander Dreymon posted this heartfelt goodbye on social media:
he wrote in the caption “I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend so much time in Uhtred’s body. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”
