The Last Kingdom

Set in the late ninth century, when what is known as England today was several separate kingdoms. The Anglo-Saxon lands are attacked and, in many instances, ruled by Danes. The Kingdom of Wessex has been left standing alone. The main protagonist Uhtred, the orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, is kidnapped by Norsemen and reared as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are constantly tested.

'The Last Kingdom' Renewed For Season 5

Netflix announced today that The Last Kingdom has been picked up for a fifth season. The good news comes two and a half months after the release of Season 4, which was the historical drama's second on the streaming service since moving there from BBC Two in 2018.
Adapted from Bernard Cornwell's book series "The Saxon Stories", the show retells the history of King Alfred the Great and his desire to unite several kingdoms into what is now known as England. Young warrior Uhtred is on a mission to reclaim his birthright. Kidnapped by Norsemen and raised as one of their own, he is forced to choose between his ancestral kingdom and the people of his upbringing.
Season 5 of The Last Kingdom will use "The Warriors of the Storm" and "The Flame Bearer" novels as its source material. No timeframe for a return has been announced, but a mid-to-late 2021 release appears likely.
