Fans of the Netflix hit series The Last Kingdom was excited to see a new trailer for season six released today. The teaser gives viewers a glimpse into what’s in store when the series returns, and it also confirms that there will be at least one additional season of the show.
Starring Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred of Bebbanburg, Millie Brady as Aethelflaed, and David Dawson as Alfred the Great, The Last Kingdom is a historical drama set in ninth-century England during a time when Vikings were invading from Denmark.
The first five seasons have been based on Bernard Cornwell’s novels about Saxon warrior Uhtred of Bebbanburg and his fight against those invaders. Now we’re headed into the final season with some interesting twists: We’ll get to see Aethelflaed (Millie Brady) take her place on the throne and we might even learn more about King Edward’s (Timothy Innes) mysterious death; however, these revelations depend largely upon whether or not you watch this trailer before reading this article…

The Last Kingdom is a BBC One historical drama that follows the adventures of Uhtred, the Saxon son of a Northumbrian nobleman who was captured by Danes and taken to their land as a child.
He grows up believing himself to be Danish but fights for his birthright when he learns that his uncle has been killed in battle and he is now heir to his father’s estate. Alongside Alfred, King Athelstan’s nephew and heir apparent, Uhtred embarks on a quest for vengeance against those who betrayed him and seized his lands.
How Many More Episodes of the Last Kingdom Are There Going to Be?
The Last Kingdom has been renewed for a sixth season and seventh season, but it remains to be seen whether or not there will be more seasons beyond that. The fifth season of the show premiered on Netflix in February 2019, with the new episodes running through June 2019. According to Deadline,
“The series is produced by Carnival Films [and] distributed internationally by NBC Universal International Studios” and “it is based on Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling novels about a young man who fights alongside King Alfred of Wessex against the Danes in Anglo-Saxon England during the 9th century.”
Will the last kingdom season 6 be released?
You may be wondering if The Last Kingdom Season 6 is coming out. Unfortunately, there has been no official confirmation of the series’ return. The show’s last season aired in October 2017 on BBC One and ran for eight episodes.
The English historical drama series was based on Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories book series, which also serves as inspiration for the popular Uhtred of Bebbanburg book series by Winston Graham (the author behind Poldark).
Both shows follow a common theme: the protagonist is torn between his loyalty and duty to two nations—in this case England and Wessex vs Danelaw—and eventually chooses where his heart lies, even if it means betraying one or both sides.
The Last Kingdom followed Uhtred who grew up thinking he was a nobleman from Northumbria but discovers that he’s actually an orphaned prince from Mercia after being captured by Vikings and adopted into their society at age 10 following his father’s death at Hastings (1066 CE).

I can’t wait to get started on season 6 of the last kingdom and see what new characters will be introduced. I am also excited for some more battles and sword-fighting scenes because we haven’t had nearly enough in this series yet.
I think it would be great if they could bring back the character Brida; she was one of my favorites in seasons 1 through 3. You can watch all five seasons on Netflix now!
