Showrunner Nigel Marchant Discussing Possibility
In an interview, the executive producer Nigel Marchant said, “We’re very hopeful, we’d love to do a season five.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we really do love making it.”
This hints toward the sound possibility of season 5. The Last Kingdom rules the hearts with its fine storytelling and fantastic star cast. And it would be wonderful to witness this series on the screens.
The Last Kingdom Season 5: Plot Details Out!
Although we don’t have a clear idea of the plot of season 5, we know it is going to be amazing. Season 4 ended on a mysterious note. It left the audience puzzled as to whether Aelswith will survive her poisoning at the hands of the treacherous Aethelhelm. Eliza Buttersworth, who plays Aelswirth, said that it was exciting to play this role. She further added that it is quite sad to see Aeswirth go and that she does not know. This speaks a lot!
Furthermore, Nigel teased that they want to show the coming together of smaller kingdoms. There are questions left for season 5 to answer. Will Uhtred come back to Bebbanburg? Will he fulfill his dream? And what will be his involvement in bringing these kingdoms together?”
Moreover, it is assumed that if this season gets a green flag, it might have ten episodes. Each season of this Netflix series loosely adapts two books of Saxon’s stories. So, season 5 might draw inspiration from Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer.
