The Last Kingdom Season 5 – What will the storyline be?
The official storyline appearance has been uploaded by Netflix, which clearly says that the fifth season will be as good as you all thought. Next season, Uhtred will decide that he is more than just a king of Bebbanburg. He realized that his power is more dominating than he can take over England itself.
But with the temptation for power, much more awaits him along the way. In reality, Uhtred is in charge of training Aethelstan’s eldest son to be a warrior, but he wants more.
EP Merchant, who has said about the plot of The Last Kingdom that,
“I think we want to tell the story of these separate kingdoms coming together and how that union comes about, and will Uhtred also return to Bebbanburg? Will he get his dream? Will he find his legacy?
“And what is his involvement in bringing these kingdoms together?“
Since the show follows the story of the author Cornwell’s Saxon’s original book, we can see many similarities to the story. Season 5 of The Last Kingdom will be based on the ninth book called Warrior of the Storm. According to a report, the series will continue to look for some of the incidents based on book 10 called The Flame Bearer.
