One of the greatest British dramas of all time, with one of the greatest fan bases of all time, we finally landed on the talk related to this series, the last kingdom. Moots of here are very well versed with what this series is related to, and the fan base has been this huge not only because of the great storyline or the actors starring in the show but also for the reason that this show is actually adapted from some of the most famous novels in the historical fiction genre.
This show is actually a direct adaption of the long-running novel series by Bernard Cornwell which is very well known among readers as the Saxon stories. For those who don’t know anything about this series, we are actually going to recommend this series to you, but first, you need to ask yourself this question, whether you like series such as a game of thrones, Vikings, and historical fictional dramas? If the answer which came to your mind is a big yes, then do not think much and just go forward and watch this series, because it’s just so much better or as we may say as good as the other series mentioned above.
The series is basically a huge political and individual level drama, with many characters introduced over a period of time, for the main characters we do see many names, but for our ease, we can refer to Uthred as the main character, however when you end up seeing the first season of the show, you may be questioning how he is the main character or the protagonist of the show, let some time pass and go on watching then you will get to know how much messed up and chaotic the situation is and it’s not actually his younger brother but he himself running the show.
For those still confused, it’s basically the conflict between the Danes and Saxons in England. This historical reference is actually available in our history book but the writer of the actual novel, fictionized at such a significant level, that everything that is shown in this show seems very much real and once you end up even watching the first season of the show, you will get absolutely hooked to it and are surely going to binge watch it for the rest of the seasons.
Now as we know we are already talking about the sixth season of the show, and the direct conclusion that we get to is, that we have already received 5 seasons of the show. This tells us very easily that the show is basically very successful and from what we have seen from the audience side too, we have been flooded with questions related to this show, the fan base is actually not from a single part of the world but the show has got audience from all over the world. Other than that, when it comes to the reviews of the critics, they were absolutely positive even for the novels as well as the show. Followed by that when we come to the ratings of the show, this show has received an 8.5 IMDb rating out of 10.
Now moving forward, as we all know there have been no announcements regarding the sixth season of the show, and that is quite normal because there are no plans for the continuation of the show. The actors as well as the makers of the show have already announced that the show was planned for only a total of 5 seasons and thus it was not unexpected for anyone on the team. However, fans have been very disappointed regarding the fact that they are not going to get to the end of the story.
If you have read the novels and watched the show till season 5, you do be knowing that 3 more novels are still there to be adopted. However, based on what our reports have confirmed, makers have considered nearly 10hrs of the show is enough for a tv show, and adapting any more in the form of a show, will be too much and both the production house and distributor of the show have shown their asset to this proposal.
Now for the fans, our makers have decided not to disappoint them anymore and bring the ending of the series in the form of a movie which will be belonging to the same franchise and that movie has already been confirmed by the makers. So instead of season 6, we will be getting the movie “Seven Kings Must Die”
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Release Date
As we have already mentioned the show has been more or less canceled by the studios as well as the makers and for all those fans who are waiting for the ending of the story, you don’t need to go and read the rest of the novels, the entire story from the last three novels of the Saxon series will be adapted into a movie which will bring the final end to the franchise. however, before moving forward toward the movie’s release date, we must look back a bit towards the other important dates related to the series.
|Name Of The Show||The Last Kingdom|
|Season Number||Season 6|
|Genre||action, drama, history|
|The Last Kingdom Season 1 Release Date||10 October 2015|
|The Last Kingdom Season 6 Release Date||Canceled|
The first season of the show made it to us on the 10th of October 2015 and with a total of 8 episodes released weekly on the BBC channel the show came to an end in November months with a total of 8 episodes. with the success of the series, we soon ended up receiving the second season of the show in the year 2017, that too was on the BBC channel. However, things changed since the third season as the distributor of the show became Netflix, and all the 10 episodes for each other following season were dropped on the same date in the years 2018, 2020, and 2022 respectively. The last season of the show was a massive hit and it adapted the 6th and the 5th novel of the series.
Now the movie-related stuff regarding the franchise was confirmed back in 2021 only and the working relationship with the show started in the year 2022, however compiling so many things into a single movie, surely seems like a tough job and that is one of the main reason that this movie is taking such a long time. Now based on our prediction and some of our trusted sources, the movie will actually make it to us by the last quarter of 2023 and that will be the final end of the show. However, we will have to wait a little longer for any more updates.
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Story
For the story of the movie that is going to make it to us in the place of the sixth season of the show, we actually don’t have many updates except the fact that the last three novels of the Saxon series may be adapted in this series, but as we all know, a movie is much shorter than a 10 episodes long series and thus how the makers of the show will adapt everything from the three books into a movie and give it to us will be quite interesting to see.
Now as the name of the movie already suggests the seven kings must die, however the biggest question that remains is how, and who will kill the seven kings, we have already known that the death of the seven kings of the show, will actually bring one of the most glorify ends to the storyline, but for any more updates we will have to wait for the trailer of the show or move to read the last three novels of the show.
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Cast
For the cast of the 6th season of the show, we can say there will not be any introduction of new characters or cast members as there are not as many in the novels mentioned, along with that all the actors whom we have seen in the previous season and will have an impact on the upcoming story of the show will be present there in the list.
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Trailer
