The Last Kingdom Season 6

Historical dramas are always a big hit with the audience. There is something about historical fiction that attracts viewers from across the globe. The Last Kingdom is one such example. After running successfully for 5 seasons it is already anticipated for a return with a 6th one.

The first season of the show aired in 2015. While it was a long time ago, the show has been able to keep up the good work and the benchmark that it set for itself. Now, the fans of the show are eagerly awaiting the return of the series with a 6th season. 

When is the next season due? Is there going to be a next season? If indeed there is going to be a 6th season of The Last Kingdom then what would be the probable plotline of the season? If you as a passionate fan of the show are also being scavenged by all these questions going on inside your mind then we might be able to provide you with some answers.

What is the release date of The Last Kingdom season 6?

The first season of the show aired in 2015. The next season followed 2 years after in 2017. After that, the show produced consecutive seasons consistently year after year. The last season of the show, that is the 5th season, premiered in 2022. Judging from the track record of the production team of the show, fans can expect the 6th season of the show to be released shortly.

However, no official news regarding a 6th season has been announced by the creators of the show. The way that the season had ended leaves much scope for development still.

What could be the probable plot of The Last Kingdom season 6?

Even though the show had originally been aired on BBC Two, Netflix had taken up the responsibility of the show soon after. The show could be stated as an inspired piece, adapted from Bernard Cornwall’s The Saxon Stories. It is centered on Uhtred of Bebbanburg who was born a Saxon and yet was thereafter raised by Danes.

The show has up till now covered the first 10 books from the collection which inspired the series. There are still 3 books left in the collection that the show has yet to cover. The fans can therefore 100% expect next season to happen where the central character will continue with his adventures and the plot line will remain faithful to its inspiration.

Who could be the probable cast members of The Last Kingdom Season 6?

The cast of the show is expected to remain the same as is the plot. While there can always be new inclusions in the show, the basic ensemble would remain the same. Fans can always expect and should always be ready for new and surprising turns of events. Here is a list of the probable cast members of The Last Kingdom Season 3.
