The global health crisis forced the entertainment industry to shut down worldwide. However, now things are coming back to normal. Many shows already began filming by following the guidelines and taking proper precautions. According to reports, the creators will begin the production of The Last Kingdom Season 5 in November 2020. They are currently doing its pre-production work and will most probably start filming in the first week of November. However, nothing is certain in the time of the pandemic.

For all the curious fans out there, Netflix already released the official synopsis of the upcoming season. It will follow the ninth (Warriors Of The Storm) and tenth (The Flame Bearer) book of the novel series. The official synopsis of The Last Kingdom Season 5 reads, “The fifth installment will witness Uhtred understand his destiny is more than just Bebbanburg. It is bound to the fate of England itself. Filled with training King Edward’s first-born son Aethelstan as a fighter, Uhtred’s drive will have an even greater purpose.
