Get an official look at Finan in season 5 of ‘The Last Kingdom’

Finan is a warrior originally from Ireland. He was a slave with the main character, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon), when they first crossed paths, but they are eventually free. Along with Sihtric (Arnas Fedaravicius), they are great friends, and they are constantly by Uhtred’s side, which is great to see after everything he’s been through.

On July 22, 2021, the official social media channels shared a look at Finan in the new season. Some fans have already gotten a glimpse of him and Sihtric’s looks in season 5 as director Jon East shared posts recently of the characters on Instagram.

In the official image of Finan, the name of the series is in the upper left corner. Finan can be seen in the middle of the post with his hand out making a motion of some kind. He has on warrior attire with a green ensemble on with chainmail on his shoulder areas. He also wears a cross as well, and he appears to be looking rather serious. 

Below the image is a quote from Finan. “’Well that is definitely a bad sign…’ – Finan.”

The post is captioned: “The air has changed. #thelastkingdom #tlk5.” Mark Rowley’s account is tagged in the post as well. Over 34,000 people have already liked the post, and over 300 have commented on it.
