In 2015, the pseudo-historical series “The Last Kingdom”, telling about the confrontation between the British and the Vikings, was released on the TV channel BBC. The project became a serious rival to the Vikings series. When the BBC dropped it after the second season, the show quickly found a new home on Netflix, where seasons 3 and 4 were released. The latter became available in the spring of 2021.
The reckoning is approaching…

For a while, the creators were silent about a sequel, but they later announced the start of filming for the fifth season. He will be the final and closes the narrative of the adventures of Utreda, a captive as a child Briton, who grew up among the Vikings. Season 5 of The Last Kingdom will have a release date in 2022. In addition to it, a feature film will also be released.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The Last Kingdom is based on a series of ten books called The Saxon Chronicles. They are written by Bernard Cornwell. The writer told the story he told is fiction, but it is based on events that happened to his ancestors. Cornwell himself is a descendant of the Vikings, which led him to study history and later served as the reason for writing the books.
The creators of the series use the text quite freely, and one season is based on two volumes at once. The upcoming fifth season is an adaptation of books 9 and 10. They are the final in the series, so the project closes there as well. Its release date is 2022.
The story is set in the late 800s. A Viking army attacks and partially captures the lands of Britain. The conquerors, who have settled on British lands, begin to be called Thanes. They give up their former occupation of raiding other countries and decide to establish a new state.

However, there remain lands in England that have not surrendered to the enemy. These are ruled by Ethelred and his brother Alfred. The brothers wish to drive the Vikings out of the lands that once belonged to them and unite them again, for this they are willing to go to intrigues and cunning, which leads the hero of the story Utred to the decision to wander the country to avenge the murderers of the King of Thanes who raised him. After the renewal of the series, the release date for season 5 of The Last Kingdom will be in 2022. It will be the final one for the project.
Utred was captured as a child and brought up by Ragnar. The man raised the prisoner as his son and the boy, growing up, became his right-hand man. After Ragnar is killed by his tribesman, Utred vows revenge, and in the course of his wanderings, he discovers that Alfred and Ethelred are behind it. In the course of his adventures, the hero will have to reconsider the confrontation of the two nations, because as a Brit he was raised and brought up in the traditions of the Vikings. The hero’s final adventures will be shown in season five, with a release date of 2022.
