Uhtred of Bebbanburg is going to be back for the fourth time.
The British historical fiction television series was first produced by BBC America for the US and BBC Two for the UK. The second series was co-produced with Netflix, who later became the sole producer after the exit of BBC. On 26th December 2018, Netflix renewed the series for a fourth season.
The series has been met with positive critical reception by fans and critics alike. On Rotten Tomatoes, season one earned an 87% approval, season two, and season three received approval ratings of 86% and 100%, respectively. The show has earned praise for the performances of the cast, cinematography, production design and action sequences. However, few critics from The Guardian remarked about the similarities between The Last Kingdom and Game Of Thrones and were slightly critical about the show. Nonetheless, due to the positive reception, the show was renewed for a fourth season.
In April 2019, filming for the fourth season had begun. In July 2019, Netflix posted on social media, asking the fans ‘to join Uhtred next year as the battle continues.’
Alexander Dreymon will reprise his role of Uhtred of Bebbanburg for the fourth season, along with many of the cast members returning, including Ian Hart, Toby Regbo, Timothy Innes, Emily Cox, Eliza Butterworth, Mark Rowley, Jeppe Beck Laurson, Magnus Bruun and Millie Brady.
So far, no announcement has been made for a new trailer, but the fourth season is expected to release this year.
