When is the Last Kingdom season 5? Were the shots taken?
Whether The Last Kingdom will return for the fifth season on Netflix has not yet been confirmed. The streaming service will probably want to evaluate the popularity of the series before creating more episodes. We will update this page with new information about the fifth season.
What can happen in the fifth season?
If the fifth season were to give the green light, there are many places the story could go to later. For one thing, fans will want to know if Aelswith will survive the poisoning of King Edward’s wife and father-in-law.
