The last kingdom is the adaptation of The Saxon Stories penned by Bernard Cornwell. The series is the joint venture of BBC America and Netflix, where the former has produced and later is the co-producer of the series. The story revolves around a central character Osbert who is lost amid uncertainties, and now he has no choice but to serve different masters. He is switching sides in furtherance of his larger goal to go back to his roots and claim what he truly deserves and is always deprived of.
When is the series going to release for the fourth season?
Finally, the much-awaited announcement came from the makers of the series, and now we have the release date, which is 26th April 2020. So now is the time just to go and watch the much anticipated fourth season of “The Last Kingdom.” A considerably large pool of audience awaited the series, and now the series is all set to hit your screen, revealing the dark realities which have its roots in the third season. We will discuss more the upcoming season in the latter part of the article.
Do we have the details on the cast of the fourth season of The Last Kingdom?
Although there are some new entrants in this season, most of the cast from the last season has been retained. The third season had made it clear by the finale episodes that there isn’t going to be a substantial overhauling of the cast.
So this is going to be the cast for the fourth season-
- Alexander Dreymon as Uhtred Ragnarsson
- Joseph Milson as Aelfric
- Toby Regbo as Aethelred
- Timothy Innes as King Edward
- Eliza Butterworth as Aelswith
- Mark Rowley as Finan Jeppe
- Beck Laursen as Haesten
- Magnus Bruun as Cnut
- Emily Cox as Brida
- Millie Brady as Aethelflaed
So now comes the new entrants of the fourth season, and this new cast may end up giving a new twist to the storyline. The new characters in the fourth season include Jamie Blackley as Eardwulf, who is going to be in a pivotal role this season, and he is going to be the shield of Aethelred. Stefanie Martini, as Eadith, will be connected to Aethelred too, and she is going to be her new lover.
How the fourth season’s story will unfold?
The series is towing the lines of two books with the title “Death of Kings” and “ The Pagan Lord.” Till the end of the third season, the storyline has followed the Death of Kings, and this season onward, the series will be following the other book. Uhtred’s return to bebbanburg seems inevitable this season, and there is going to be a fierce battle to fight both outside and inside. So things are going to go the way it has been described, but ultimately it’s not the destination rather the journey which matters at the end of the day.
