Instead of season 6 a “The Last Kingdom” film is coming to Netflix This is how “Seven Kings Must Die” is connected to the series – series news


The fifth season ” The Last Kingdom ” has been available on Netflix for a few days and, as has been known for a long time, Season 5 is also the end of the series, there will be no more new episodes. At least “The Last Kingdom” fans can look forward to a film that is currently being shot and is entitled ” Seven Kings Must Die “.

So far, it has only been possible to speculate how exactly the series and the film are connected. Now, however, The Last Kingdom producer Nigel Marchant has shed some light on the matter. In an interview with the Radio Times , he described “Seven Kings Must Die” as a ” standalone story ” that should be suitable for die-hard fans and newcomers alike.

Standalone, but still connected

Nevertheless, “The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die” is not completely detached from the series, because it has already been confirmed that leading actor Alexander Dreymon will be seen again as Uhtred and that, in addition to some new characters, other familiar faces from the series will also return.

Anyone who has already watched Season 5 to the end knows which characters survived to the last episode and could therefore appear in “Seven Kings Must Die”.

For Marchant, however, Season 5 is the logical conclusion to the series , as he explained to the Radio Times : “We felt that our two major storylines were coming together […] Throughout the five seasons, there was a clear beginning, middle and end .”

Complicated relationship between the original book and the series

Incidentally, the fact that “The Last Kingdom” is over after five seasons is not because there is no longer a book, on the contrary:

Three volumes of Bernard Cornwell’s “Uhtred Saga”, on which the series is based, have not yet been filmed. But the series was designed for five seasons from the start, Marchant pointed out, because there were only ten volumes when work on The Last Kingdom began, and each season is based on two books.

Since then, however, Cromwell has written three more books “that follow up on where we are in Season 5,” Marchant said. “So we talked to Netflix very early on about whether we could also tell this piece of the puzzle so that it felt complete.” But then a film was the more suitable format for that.

Apparently, “Seven Kings Must Die” will actually be based on the last three volumes of the “Uhtred Saga”, albeit probably rather loosely. However, the story of “The Last Kingdom” should already be completed by the end of season 5, while the film is probably intended more as a kind of epilogue.

The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die is expected to be released on Netflix in late 2022 or early 2023 . After seasons 4 and 5 appeared in spring, we guess March or April 2023.
