We were yearning for the last couple of months to hear awesome news regarding The Last Kingdom Season 5 and finally, the day has arrived for which we spent 180 days waiting. If you liked and enjoyed watching the previous four seasons of the drama then after listening to this news, you will go crazy out of happiness. So are you excited to know what this?
If yes, then let me tell you that recently clearing all speculations regarding The Last Kingdom Season 5 release date Netflix confirmed that the series will be coming for the 5th time. The official streaming partner of drama also revealed that the cast will very soon start shooting for the next season. Apart from this, some more updates have also arrived so let’s discuss them one by one.
Has Netflix Revealed The Last Kingdom Season 2 Release Date?
Well, the OTT platform has just renewed the historical drama for next season but they haven’t shared any information about the release date. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the makers were forced to hold all works of drama but now they will resume all things and by adopting all precautionary measures they will begin shooting for Season 5 very soon.
The producer Nigel Merchant has mentioned “We are really proud of The Last Kingdom, which continues to entertain audiences all over the world. We had such a tremendous response to the last season, so are thrilled to be bringing it back for season five on Netflix. With such a loyal fanbase, we’re excited to give viewers a chance to follow Uhtred on the next stage of his quest.”
As per reports, they will start shooting from the last month of this year. So, If this happens also all tasks go in the right way then the creation process will get finish in the next 18 months. Hence we will able to watch the season by mid of 2022.
The drama revealed its renewal through a video clip by publishing it on its social media handles. In the video actor Alexander Dreymon can be seen sharing this fascinating news with his companions.
How Will The Last Kingdom Season 5 Plot Be?
Netflix’s formal premise discloses – “The fifth installment will see Uhtred realize his destiny is more than just Bebbanburg: it is tied to the future of England itself. Charged with training King Edward’s first-born son Aethelstan as a warrior, Uhtred’s ambition will have an even higher purpose. But to achieve this destiny, Uhtred will have to face down his greatest enemy and suffer his greatest loss.”
Drama lovers will be a bit anxious regarding what Uthred is going to drop in season 5 as the series hasn’t feared killing central figures in previous versions. Apart from this, we are also hoping to witness a growing bond between Stiorra and Sigtryggr as they set up a strong alliance that too at severe conditions.
At the same time, we can not anticipate that The Last Kingdom will strictly obey those books in-depth as the streaming partner is popular for bringing big variations to The Last Kingdom novels.
During a conversation with Radio Times, Executive Producer Nigel Marchant slightly hinted how the story will proceed in next season – “I think we want to tell the story of these separate kingdoms coming together and how that union happens, and also does Uhtred get back to Bebbanburg? Does he get his dream? Does he find his legacy? And what’s his involvement in bringing these kingdoms together?”
Hence there are various predictable stories regarding season 5 but what is really going to happen no one knows. It will be revealed only after the release of season 5.
Who Will Be Part Of The Last Kingdom Season 5 Cast?
We haven’t got any accurate news about the cast of the upcoming season as the creators haven’t revealed anything about it. But as per reports of some sources, Alexander Dreymon will be again seen as Uhtred of Bebbanburg in season 5. The series has become quite successful and people have loved it a lot.
They have become die-hard fans of several actors who have presented distinct roles in the series. So, I think the creators will definitely consider this point while making season 5 and that’s why there are very few chances of change in the cast of next season.
