Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories finale trilogy has dropped! And hence, fans couldn’t help but wonder if The Last Kingdom Season 6 will cover it. Well, firstly, the makers and the series’ home platform, Netflix, have canceled the show.
Yes, The Last Kingdom Season 5 was its final Season. With that in mind, let’s go through everything you need to know about the feature film!
Is The Last Kingdom Season 6 Cancelled?
The Last Kingdom Season 6 is indeed canceled. However, before you grab your tissue box and start sniffing, THIS ISN’T THE WRAP-UP OF THE LAST KINGDOM!
Instead of The Last Kingdom Season 6, you will get a feature film: 7 Kings Must Die.
The feature film deep dives into the finale trilogy books released in 2018, 2019, and 2020, which are called War of the Wolf, Sword of Kings, and War Lord, respectively.
And while talking with Radio Times, the show’s executive producer (Merchant Nigel) had expressed how the feature film will be standalone.
Season 5 was indeed the final Season. And while the makers are producing a summarized trilogy film, you can watch it even if you have not watched the first five seasons.
When Is The Feature Film Released?
As per Alexander Dreymon’s grateful post on Instagram, the filming of 7 Kings Must Die ended in March 2022. And it barely lasted for two months.
The feature film was released on 4th April 2023 on Netflix.
What Does The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die Revolve Around?
As discussed earlier, 7 Kings Must Die is a feature film that almost acts like a sequel to The Last Kingdom series.
Moreover, it encapsulates the final trilogy of novels written by Bernard Cornwell.
And without giving too many spoilers, the story revolves around Uhtred and Bebbanberg and how he and his comrades are returning back to the ruins of deceased King Edward’s Kingdom.
Moreover, how Uhtred further unites England is worth the watch!
So, what are you waiting for? Head to Netflix and tune into The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die.
Is The Official Trailer Out?
The official Trailer of 7 Kings Must Die was released on 8th March 2023.
