For some reason, readers can’t seem to get enough of fictional accounts of the past. The first was “Game of Thrones,” and the current one is “The Last Kingdom.” In March of 2022, the newest season of The Last Kingdom premiered on Netflix.
Fans are asking when we will get season 6 of The Last Kingdom, and it’s easy to see why: the show has thrilling battle scenes, real-world happenings, and a fast-paced plot, all of which make for eager viewers.
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Release Date
When Season 6 of The Last Kingdom will debut is up in the air for the time being. There have been rumors that Season 6 of The Last Kingdom will premiere between January and June of 2023, although this has not been confirmed.
Beginning in the fall of 2015, the first season of The Last Kingdom was broadcast on BBC Two. A few years and early 2017 later, the second season premiered. Release dates for seasons four and five of Netflix have been set for 2020 and 2022, respectively. The fifth installment is rumored to be coming out in 2022.
What Happens to the Last Kingdom Season 6 Cast?
Before you pound your fists on the table, take comfort in knowing that Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s quest to unite kingdoms is far from over. Seven Kings Must Die, a Netflix film adaption of the final three volumes of the series, has been highly anticipated by readers.
Executive producer Nigel Marchant said the movie would be more of a standalone and that season five of the show seemed to be the end in a Radio Times interview. The show’s fans will love it, but newcomers can still appreciate it.

Everything seems to be fixed by the end of Season 5, but that’s not quite the case. After the Battle of Bebbanburg is won, Uhtred will be closer than ever to fulfilling his father’s dream of a unified England.

As expected, the remaining three volumes of The Saxon Stories will be adapted into a visual medium. Uhtred still has a long way to go on his quest with an enraged king and a growing family.
The Last Kingdom Season 6 Plotline
The Saxon Stories, a novel series by Bernard Cornwell, served as inspiration for The Last Kingdom. The first ten books have been covered across the show’s five seasons so far. Three more volumes remain to be adapted from the series before a film adaptation can be made.

Since the film is set after the events of Season 5, it is likely that Dreymon, along with many other members of the Season 5 cast, will make an appearance.
Nigel Marchant announced at MCM London Comic-Con that Season 5 would be the last. A final season was deemed necessary because, as he put it, “there was always one more tale we wanted to tell.” This was combined with the encouragement of Netflix and the anticipation of the audience for more episodes. The Last Kingdom Season 6 Teaser, commonly known as Seven Kings Must Die, maybe a long time coming for fans.
Even though we can’t wait to watch how the movie wraps up the story of The Last Kingdom, we’ll be sad to see the series come to an end because of the loss of escapism it provided. Remember, the series finale will be a 2-hour special titled “Seven Kings Must Die,” and it has a lot of pressure to live up to high expectations.
