“The Last Kingdom” will end with its upcoming Season 5 on Netflix.
The announcement comes as the show begins production on its fifth season in Budapest, Hungary.
“I love this job,” series star Alexander Dreymon said. “Playing Uhtred for 5 seasons has been a wonderful journey. And I’m truly grateful to have been given the opportunity to direct. In doing so, I came to fully appreciate the spectacular talent and skill of our cast and crew even more. I can’t wait to share it with our fans, without whom none of this would be possible.”
Based on the ninth and tenth books of Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling novel series “The Saxon Stories,” the fifth season will see Uhtred (Dreymon) realize his destiny is more than just Bebbanburg: it is tied to the future of England itself. Charged with training King Edward’s first-born son Aethelstan as a warrior, Uhtred’s ambition will have an even higher purpose. But to achieve this destiny, Uhtred will have to face down his greatest enemy and suffer his greatest loss.
