The Last Kingdom Season 5: Introduction
Creating a show based upon the historical fictional characters might seem easy. Still, it’s not because it requires a ton of effort from writers and producers to keep the plot interesting for upcoming seasons. The Last Kingdom managed to live up to its expectations. That’s why Netflix decided to renew it for the forthcoming season.
The series made its debut on BBC television network in 2015 and continued till the second season. Netflix decided to cash in on the opportunity by acquiring its rights and made the next two seasons by creating a massive buzz among its watchers.
Season 4 of the Last Kingdom aired on 26 April 2020, and it ended with lots of questions that will get answered next season.

We will see Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred, Emilly Cox as Brida, and Ian Hart playing father Beocca.
From the last season, Arnas Fedaravičius, Ewan Mitchell, and Mark Rowley have become fans’ favourites. They portray these characters quite interestingly, making them more enjoyable than any other lead character.
The Last Kingdom Season 5 Release Date

On the latest video call, all the leading star cast of the show has been seen talking about the upcoming fifth season coming quickly on Netflix.
Producers have confirmed they are ready to start working on the upcoming season, requiring the production cycle of 18 months to complete. Since it’s a historical fiction show that requires months of preparation from writers, designers, and producers, we might get the next season by the end of 2021.

The fifth season of this epic show will be based upon the ninth and tenth book from the famous The Saxon Stories. The official synopsis focuses more on the Uhtred and his ambition to reclaim the land of his ancestors. While achieving his goal, he will have to face the greatest of his enemies and suffer from significant trauma.
From the last two seasons, fans see their beloved characters getting killed off, so they are not entirely worried about who Uhtred is going to lose in the next season. The show’s creators managed to go ahead with the protagonist by killing off other characters without any doubt.
However, some experts are saying that fans shouldn’t expect Netflix is going to follow the novels completely, because earlier we have seen creators of the show making significant changes by avoiding the original plotline from the adopted books.
Even though the latest season been aired just a few months ago, fans still want to see season 6 of the last kingdom sooner.
