Netflix’s The Last Kingdom to Get a Feature Film Called Seven Kings Must Die

0

While Netflix’s The Last Kingdom will get its fifth and final season in 2022, it was just announced that the show will get a feature film called Seven Kings Must Die as, according to producer Nigel Marchant, “there was always one more story we wanted to tell.”

As reported by Deadline, the announcement was shared at this year’s London MCM Comic Con by Alexander Dreymon – the actor behind The Last Kingdom’s protagonist Uhtred – and the show’s executive producers.

Filming on Seven Kings Must Die will begin in early 2022 in Budapest, shortly before The Last Kingdom’s 10-episode season arrives on Netflix. Dreymon will be part of the film, as will “many of the series cast, along with some new faces.”

Producer Nigel Marchant added that, while season five “fully concludes the series, there was always one more story that we wanted to tell.”

Dreymon also shared his excitement and thanked the fans for being so supportive of the show.

“It’s been such a privilege to tell Uhtred’s story for five seasons. I’m so grateful to our fans. They have been immensely loyal to The Last Kingdom and thanks to their support, the team is getting together for another round.”

The Last Kingdom is based on Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories and was originally commissioned by BBC2 and aired in 2015. Netflix became a co-producer for the show’s second season and took full rights in most territories beginning in season three.

The show covers a roughly 45-year period of history from “866 following the Great Heathen Army’s arrival in Britain, focusing on the resistance of the Kingdom of Wessex to ongoing Viking incursions to Southern England.”

NBCUniversal International Studios’ Carnival Films will be producing Seven Kings Must Die, with Dreymon serving as executive producer alongside writer Martha Hillier. Ed Bazalgette will be the film’s director, and its other producers include Marchant, Gareth Neame, and Mat Chaplin.
