Although Season 5 will be the final one, the narrative is continued in Seven Kings Must Die.
The audience is extremely captivated by historical dramas for some reason. Game of Thrones came first, and The Last Kingdom is now. In March 2022, the most recent season’s Netflix premiered. It’s simple to understand why fans are already clamoring for season 6 given the show’s immersive action sequences, incorporation of real historical events, and compelling plot.
Will The Last Kingdom have a sixth season?
Sadly, the Netflix series is ending after its fifth season. Shortly before the season 5 premiere, lead actor Alexander Dreymon posted this trailer with fans on Instagram. Let’s just say there was a mix of enthusiasm and melancholy.

Someone said, “I don’t want it to end. Fans might be startled to learn that the show’s choice to cease after its fifth season was predetermined from the start. The Saxon Stories of Bernard Cornwell served as the inspiration for the show, therefore its creators were aware that it would logically follow the plotlines of the books. The author was still working on the series’ final three books, War of the Wolf (2018), Sword of Kings (2019), and War Lord, when the show debuted in 2015. (2020).
What will happen to the characters from The Last Kingdom next?
You can rest easy knowing that Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s journey to reunite kingdoms isn’t over before you bang your fists on the table. Fans may anticipate Seven Kings Must Die, a Netflix movie that covers the final three books of the tale.

Nigel Marchant, the executive producer, stated in a Radio Times interview that “The fifth season of the television show does seem like the finale, and the movie will be much more of a standalone. Fans of the TV show will especially enjoy it, but you can watch it even if you’ve never watched the program.”
Season 5 appears to conclude with everything resolved, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. With the war for Bebbanburg behind him, Uhtred is moving closer to realizing his father’s dream of unifying England. The final three books of The Saxon Stories will be brought to life for viewers, as anticipated. Things are far from finished for Uhtred’s trip with a furious king and a growing family.
What is the release date for Seven Kings Must Die?
In just two months, Seven Kings Must Die was able to wind up production in March 2022. Fans can anticipate the movie to premiere on Netflix sometime in late 2022 or 2023.
After The Last Kingdom was finished, Uhtred Alexander Dreymon sent the following touching farewell on social media:

His commentary stated: “I consider myself extremely lucky to have spent so many years partially inhabiting Uhtred’s body. Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart.”
All good things must come to an end, as they say, and while we know the story of bringing England together will have a satisfying conclusion with the release of the movie, we’ll miss being able to escape to the world of The Last Kingdom.
