Based on The Saxon Stories novels by Bernard Cornwell, The Last Kingdom is a British historical television season with a total of 4 seasons. After the exit of BBC America after 2 seasons, Netflix co-produced the third season and after the show gained popularity, Netflix renewed for a fourth season. Fans have been anxiously waiting for this sequel, and it looks like this wait is going to end soon!
The cast for season 5
The cast for season 5 will include Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Without him, The Last Kingdom will not be the same as his performance is outstanding and has won the hearts of his fans. Also, he has a lot of unfinished business to see as a mission in season 4 cost the life of a dear friend. Emily Cox is also likely to come back as Uhtred’s childhood friend turned nemesis Brida, who was last seen giving birth alone in the woods.
Also, we might be able to see Mark Rowley, Ewan Mitchell, Arnas Fedaravicius, Jeppe Beck Laursen, Eysteinn Siguroarson, Ruby Hartley, Timothy Innes, Millie Brady, and Eliza Butterworth.
We still haven’t got the green light for season 5 from Netflix so if we do have a season 5, it wouldn’t come until the end of 2021 or the start of 2022 as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has let to a stop on film productions.
Spoilers and Updates
As fans witnessed in season 4 that the Uhtred family is now divided. The son returns to the church and his daughter is departing, and obviously, everyone was sad. It would be interesting to see if there is a reunion possible and if so, how is it executed? Maybe we will have answers in the upcoming season.
