The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die will be on our screens Friday, April 14, 2023! The film, starring Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred of Bebbanburg, serves as a sequel to the Netflix television series. So will there be another movie to follow?
The production picks up following the events of the season 5 finale, with everyone still fighting in the hopes of having a united England. Peace seems to befall the country for a time, that is until King Edward dies. Now the fight for the throne comes around with two potential heirs in the picture, Aelfweard and Uhtred’s former “ward and protégé,” Aethelstan, Netflix shares. But a “dark influence” has taken over Aethelstan, putting our central character in a difficult position. Through all of this, the Danish Warrior‐King Anlaf also arrives to cause trouble.
So after five seasons and now a sequel film, it seems like the universe may be expanding. Is that going to be the case? We’ve got the answer for you below!
Will there be another The Last Kingdom movie after Seven Kings Must Die?
As far as we know at the moment, Seven Kings Kings Must Die is supposed to serve as the conclusion to The Last Kingdom story. The projects are based on the Saxon Stories, the book series written by author Bernard Cornwell. There’s a total of 13 (!) novels, and the film should be covering the last three, per Screen Rant.
Joining Dreymon onscreen are Harry Gilby as Aethelstan, Ewan Horrocks as Aelfweard, Pekka Strang as King Anlaf, Mark Rowley as Finan, Arnas Fedaravicius as Sihtric, and Rod Hallett as Constantin.
