It was announced that The Last Kingdom Season 5 would be the final season. This is devastating and shocking news to all fans of this amazing show. The series, currently showing on Netflix (one of the best, if not THE BEST), is based on the historical novel series 'Saxon Stories' by Bernard Cornwell, and there are 13 books in the series following the warrior Uhtred against the backdrop of the formation of England. There are enough books (13 in total) to cover at least 6 seasons or perhaps a movie-length feature to cover the last 3 books to end Uhtred's saga properly. It is very sad and unacceptable that season 5 would be the last one.
Uhtred's story and the history of England deserve a proper ending. This is the best show on Netflix right now and has a passionate, dedicated and growing fandom who will always be here to support and promote it worldwide!
All the passionate fans of the show, the loyal ARSELINGS, would like to petition to Netflix and Carnival Films to consider a 6th season or a spin-off movie length feature to complete the story covering all the books! Please, it cannot end this way!
Destiny is All!
