Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) is finally able to take a break after five seasons of struggling to unite England. Despite the fact that season 5 is the final season of The Last Kingdom, it is not the final season of the television show. Seven Kings Must Die, a standalone sequel to Netflix’s Saxon Stories, will explore at least part of the events that occurred after the show’s conclusion in the book series. So if you’re already feeling the effects of Last Kingdom withdrawal, you’ll be able to acquire another dose of it at some point in the near future.’

So far, a plot summary for Seven Kings Must Die has not been made public, however, we can assume the following:
Uhtred, after retaking Bebbanburg, made a commitment to keep the peace between King Constantin of Alba and King Edward of Wessex in order for Uhtred to keep the peace. A separate Bebbanburg, on the other hand, means Edward’s ambition of a unified England is still in danger. Does this mean that a future monarch from the Wessex line will go back on his word and betray Uhtred? Bebbanburg is the last place Uhtred wants to be, but fate has other plans, and he’ll once again be at the center of creating England’s future.
