Among similar shows that deal with the invasion of the Great Pagan Army, ‘The Last Kingdom’ stands out with its intense storyline that spans all corners of the brutal event. Fans have always loved witnessing wild, raging Viking tales, and ‘The Last Kingdom’ has never failed to deliver.
The Vikings attempt to march down against the Anglo-Saxons, unleashing a new level of chaos in ‘The Last Kingdom’. Imprisoned as a child, Uhtred swears revenge against the Saxons while the then Danish rule kills his father and brother. The story mainly revolves around the relationship between Uhtred and Alfred, which is not exactly sweet.
The first season of ‘The Last Kingdom’ premiered in October 2015 and was later renewed for a second by BBC Two. After the successful run of two seasons, BBC Two transferred the production rights for ‘The Last Kingdom’ to Netflix. Since it’s been over a year since the release of ‘The Last Kingdom’ season 4, fans are eager to know more about the upcoming one.
The Last Kingdom Season 5: Renewal Status
‘The Last Kingdom’ is one of the best-performing shows for Netflix, as its fourth season has been in the top ten for a long time. The news came shortly after the fourth season’s release on July 7, 2020. It was made by a video released by the cast members teasing the renewal news.
The Last Kingdom Season 5: Release Date
There is no official news about the release date of ‘The Last Kingdom’ season 5. The production unit has not yet completed filming for the fifth season and will probably be completed in the coming months. It should also be noted that the production process for ‘The Last Kingdom’ is not an easy task with the amount of theater required for the show.
The Covid-19 pandemic isn’t making things any easier either, as it can affect the manufacturing process. So a realistic expectation for the release of ‘The Last Kingdom’ season 5 will be a release in early 2022.
The Last Kingdom Season 5: Episodes
‘The Last Kingdom’ originally started with an 8-episode premiere for the first two seasons. However, after its acquisition by Netflix, two more episodes have been added each season, and as such, Season 5 of “The Last Kingdom” will typically air 10 episodes.
