The Last Kingdom is a Netflix Original historical drama, based on The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell. The series was a co-production between the British broadcaster BBC and Netflix earlier, but since the third season, the series production has been entirely looked after by Netflix. This series has done great internationally and has appeared in multiple top ten lists across the world.
After some very successful seasons of The Last Kingdom, Netflix has left us wanting even more of Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s adventures around Anglo-Saxon in England.
The series has officially been renewed, and production may begin in November 2020. Here’s everything we all know to date about The Last Kingdom season 5.
The cast announced the news in a video released by the official The Last Kingdom Twitter account.It’s hard to predict when the new season of The Last Kingdom, earlier there was a chance that it could be mid 2021. But there’s no official announcement yet on when The Last Kingdom season five will be released, since all the production and shootings of the worldwide entertainment industries were on halt earlier, now the crew intends to start out filming before the top of the year.
If everything runs smoothly, then the series could also be ready to stick with its usual 18-month production cycle, suggesting a possible release date in late 2021 or early 2022.
Netflix provided a synopsis for the fifth season of The Last Kingdom,it will be based on the next two books by Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories novels: Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer. Based on books nine and ten – the soldiers of the Storm and therefore the Flame Bearer – the fifth season will see Uhtred realize his destiny is quite just Bebbanburg: it’s tied to the longer term of England itself. Charged with training King Edward’s first-born son Aethelstan as a warrior, Uhtred’s ambition will have a good higher purpose. But to realize this destiny, Uhtred will need to face down his greatest enemy and suffer his greatest loss.

- The cast of The Lost Kingdom arrived in Hungary, where the first four seasons had been filmed. As we witnessed a lot of bloodshed in the previous season, a lot of cast members will no longer be joining, characters like Ian Hart’s Father Beocca won’t be back after he drew his last breath. We also said goodbye to Toby Regbo’s Aethelred
