Netflix’s historical drama The Last Kingdom Season 4 has been Confirmed as Coming this year
The Last Kingdom Season 4 Expected Release Date
In April 2019, Netflix confirmed that filming had begun on the 10 new episodes. So we can expect the release of season 2 in 2020 very soon.
What is The Last Kingdom Season 4 is about?
It narrates the story of our hero 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. However, Uhtred’s betrayal let the Danes believe he killed his adoptive father. Thus, Uhtred was forced to travel to Wessex.
What to expect in The Last Kingdom Season 4?
The book to be adapted for the upcoming series is The Pagan Lord, published in 2013. This would mean a fresh batch of young actors will be needed. In this book, Uhtred’s children by Gisela are all grown up.
The Last Kingdom Season 4 Recurring & Cast?
Alexander Dreymon is set to return as Uhtred of Bebbanburg (a little older), and, with the alliances between the kingdoms fractured, he believes the timing is right to challenge his uncle Aelfric played by Joseph Millson.
Apart from this, some of the returning cast will be Ian Hart as Father Beocca), Toby Regbo as Aethelred, Emily Cox as Brida, Timothy Innes as Kind Edward, Eliza Butterworth as Aelswith, Mark Rowley as Finan, Millie Brady as Aethelflaed, Magnus Bruun as Cnut and Jeppe Beck Laursen as Haesten.
Netflix has also confirmed that Prime Suspect 1973 star Stefanie Martini will join the cast as Eadith, who will be Aethelred’s new love conquest. Jamie Blackley will join the cast as Aethelred’s new right-hand man Eardwulf.
