The Last Kingdom Season 5 Release Date
Season 4 of The Last Kingdom enjoyed a meteoric triumph after its release on April 26, 2020. Moreover, a quarter after its release, Netflix (Alice in Borderland) had already announced an upcoming season.
On social media, lead actor Alexander Dreymon backed the streaming platform’s claims. He even went so far as to make an official announcement on the subject. On the other hand, the production company did not comment, but it maintained the suspense by revealing the likely sequel to the series.
Admittedly, the filming of season 5 is underway, viewers will not see the new episodes until 2021 and even in 2022. The health measures related to the Coronavirus had to postpone the filming of this new season. They will therefore have to wait wisely for several months before reviewing their favorite series.
Plot of The Last Kingdom Season 5
The official look of the storyline has been uploaded by Netflix (The Witcher: Blood Origin), which makes it clear that the fifth season will be as good as you all thought. In the coming season, Uhtred will decide that he is more than just a king of Bebbanburg. He realized that his power is more dominant than he can actually conquer England itself.
But with the temptation of power, all we have to do is wait for it on the road. In reality, Uhtred is tasked with training Aethelstan’s eldest son for a warrior, but he wants more.
EP Merchant, who said about the plot of The Last Kingdom that, I think we want to tell the story of these separate kingdoms coming together and how this union happens and is Uhtred also returning to Bebbanburg? Does he have his dream? Does he find his legacy? And what is his involvement in the rapprochement of these kingdoms?
As the show follows the story of author Cornwell’s Saxon’s original book, we could see a lot of similarities with the story. Season 5 of The Last Kingdom will be based on the ninth book titled Warrior of the Storm. According to one report, the series will additionally look for some of the incidents based on book 10 titled The Flame Bearer.
