The Last Kingdom, the British historical fictional drama series now available to stream on Netflix. The fourth season released in April this year and was a huge success. Now the fans cannot wait for the fifth season. Talking of which, the show has already been commissioned for the fifth season. The announcement was made on the 7th of July this year. With a lot of Bernard Cornwell’s source material still left, the upcoming seasons are going to be a blast.
As far as the release is concerned, our educated guess would be April 2021. However, with the world under pandemic and several shows on suspended production, April 2021 would not be the right time. Therefore, our next best guess is that no more new seasons would come until late 2021.
What might happen in the next season?
Netflix has already revealed the synopsis for the fifth season and it says, “Uthred realizes his destiny is much more than just Bennaburg and is actually tied with the future of England itself.”
To achieve his destiny, Uthred will have to face his greatest enemy and suffer great losses. So, I guess the next season can be exciting as well as emotional. In the context of the fifth season, E.P. Merchant said that the next season will get into the storyline of how the union happens and what is Uthred’s role in that. Moreover, we will get to see if he achieves his dream or not.
As the series still carries on with Cornwell’s Saxon Stories, the fifth season will unravel the chapters form book 9( Warriors of the Storm) and book 10( The Flame Bearer). A great war is still awaited and a lot of action is anticipated from the upcoming season.
