People, when discussing any British historical drama Television series, “The Last Kingdom” is not left unuttered. This series is based on “The Saxon Stories” – a series of novels by Bernard Cornwell. Premiered on BBC America and on BBC Two in the UK on 10 October 2015, the 1st series had a lasting impact on the minds of the audience, making them crazy about it. The 3rd series streamed exclusively on Netflix from 19 November 2018 following the 2nd season which was aired in March 2017. Netflix renewed the show for the 4th series, officially declaring 26 April 2020 to be its release date.
This series shows the Vikings invading the lands owned by the Anglo-Saxons. The journey of a Saxon bourne and Viking raised boy Uhtred is depicted and the internal turmoil he goes through trying to choose between his birthplace and the place of his upbringing. His heart melted when he was warmly welcomed by Ragnar the Younger even though he had joined King Alfred as his supporting hand in wars. Still, he chose his own land, but fate had other plans for him.
Season 4 will bring in a new plot and will show the life of Uhtred’s children. Let’s wait for its trailer to be released to get some ideas regarding the plot.
The cast expected to be seen in season 4 include Alexander Dreymon (Uhtred Ragnarsson), Ian Hart (Father Beocca), Toby Regbo (Aethelred), Emily Cox (Brida), Timothy Innes (King Edward), Eliza Butterworth (Aelswith), Mark Rowley (Finan), Millie Brady (Aethelflaed), Magnus Brunn(Cnut), Jeppe Beck Lawsen (Haetsen), Joseph Milson (Aelfric)
Some new faces are rumored to be seen in season 4. They include Ruby Hartley and Jamie Blackley.
Hope season 4 will strike the screen on its announced date and meets its fans’ expectations.
