Will there be a season 5 of The Last Kingdom?

The Last Kingdom is definitely one of the best shows on Netflix, but it didn’t start out as a Netflix original series.

The series is based on Bernard Cornwell’s book series, The Saxon Stories. It premiered on BBC Two in the UK in 2015 and ran there for two seasons. Both seasons were added to Netflix later, and because it was such a big success, Netflix picked up the third season and became the exclusive streaming home for the series.

We can’t say for sure if BBC Two was completely done with the series before Netflix picked it up. It’s unclear if the show was canceled or Netflix just saw a good opportunity. Either way, there’s no debate that it worked well.

On Netflix, two seasons have been released. The fourth season was added to Netflix in April 2020.

The Last Kingdom has been renewed for season 5 at Netflix. It’s unlikely that we’ll see the new season early next year. It will likely be released sometime at the end of 2021 if all goes well. The pandemic could delay the new season ever further into the future, but we’re hoping to see the new season soon.
