The last kingdom is renewed for season 4, which means the long wait is over. In April 2019, Netflix confirmed that the filming had begun. The show backed up the announcement by posting “the battle continues,” which left fans in shock and excitement. Sheild walls at the ready! Because it is about to get exciting.
The upcoming season of this historical drama is rumored to be out early this year. While there are no specified details about the storyline, here is everything we know so far. Adapted from Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories novels, the show follows the same storyline. Each season follows one part of the book. The main focus of the show is on the hero Uhtred, son of Uhtred. The story is based on the life of this Saxon boy who is raised by the Danes. The story takes an unexpected turn when Uhtred is forced to travel to Wessex, where he stands against the Danes. The new season will also see a time jump and revolve around Uhtred’s children. Sources say the filming has begun and is all set for a debut in 2020.
New cast members for series four include Stefanie Martini playing Eadith, Aethelred’s new love conquest, and her brother, Aethelred’s new right-hand man and Uhtred’s rival Eardwulf, played by Jamie Blackley. In the first look picture released from Netflix, father Beocca and Uhtred seem to be caught in some thought. Only time will tell if it is an approaching army or probably just a seagull passing.
