Netflix’s history based series The kingdom is all set to return to the screen with its fourth season. Based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories novel series.
When Will, The Last Kingdom Season Four, Released On Netflix?
The show’s renewal was announced in December 2018 via The Last Kingdom’s official Twitter page.
In April 2019, Netflix confirmed that filming had begun on the ten new episodes – and in July 2019, the show’s Instagram page invited fans to “join Uhtred next year on Netflix as the battle continues” – so it means fans will rejoice the season four in 2020 for sure.
The plot of The Kingdom
Set in the 9th century AD, the series is based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories novels, with each season following the events of two books. The protagonist of the story is Uhtred, son of Uhtred, a Saxon boy who’s brought up by Danes after they capture him and decide to raise him as their own. Uhtred later betrayed, and the Danes come to believe that he killed his adoptive father, the Danish warlord Ragnar, the Elder. Uhtred is forced to travel to Wessex, the only one of the seven kingdoms (which make up what we now think of as England) that isn’t in Danish control. Once arrived, he offers his assistance — including knowledge of the Danes’ battle strategies — to the Wessex king, Alfred.
Who Is In The Cast?
Alexander Dreymon is set to return as Uhtred of Bebbanburg (looking perhaps a little greyer), and, with the alliances between the kingdoms fractured, he believes the timing is right to challenge his uncle Aelfric, played by Joseph Millson.
Ian Hart (Father Beocca), Toby Regbo (Aethelred), Emily Cox (Brida), Timothy Innes (Kind Edward), Eliza Butterworth (Aelswith), Mark Rowley (Finan), Millie Brady (Aethelflaed), Magnus Bruun (Cnut) and Jeppe Beck Laursen (Hasten). Netflix has also confirmed that Prime Suspect 1973 star Stefanie Martini will join the cast as Eadith, “Aethelred’s new love conquest.”
