Netflix is all set to come up with the fifth season of the British historical fictional drama The Last Kingdom. The story of this web show is adopted from English author Bernard Cornwell’s series of novels titled The Saxon Stories.
There are 13 novels that have been released so far and the series has already covered the first 8 volume in four episodes. The fourth season was premiered on April 26, 2020, and consisted of 10 episodes. The upcoming season will also premiere 10 episodes, in one go.
The debut season was premiered on October 10, 2015, on BBC America and on October 22, 2015 on BBC America. The second season was the joint venture of BBC and Netflix but since the third season, which was released on November 19, 2018, the series production is entirely handled by Netflix.
The official announcement of the renewal of the series was made way back in July 7, 2020. The expectations from this season will be very high owing to the huge success of all four seasons.
