According to Deadline, the new season will be based on books nine and 10 of Bernard Cornwell’s hit novel series The Saxon Stories. The Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer are the next novels in the storyline. With 10 episodes to come, there will be plenty of time to reacquaint ourselves with the characters. There is no date in sight for the new season, but that’s to be expected considering season 4 was just released in April this year.

Fans react to the news of an all-new season

Naturally, fans are celebrating the news of an all-new season to come in the future. Reddit is overflowing with comments. The news was posted on the official social media accounts for the series. In a conference call, Alexander Dreymon, who plays Uhtred, revealed the news of season 5 in separate group calls to members of the main cast. They are laughing and enjoying the moment together, which is always nice to see and fans really appreciate that.

One fan commented to say how nice it is to see the cast so happy about the renewal just like the rest of us. “Love seeing the cast so happy and enthusiastic about the show being renewed!” said a Reddit user. “You can tell they all really enjoy doing this and putting their all into the acting! Can’t wait for Season 5.”

Another fan says the actors are “incredible.” “You all are incredible! Keep up the good work and can’t wait for season 5. Destiny is all,” the fan wrote.

One fan is hoping season 5 will show more of Sihtric (Arnas Fedaravicius). He doesn’t have enough lines and fans really seem to love his character. “I hope they give Sihtric more of a story and quit half-****** his character. He deserves a bigger role,” the fan wrote.

Another fan thinks the video was “sweet” to see. The cast gets to reunite and learn of the renewal news, and it’s obvious they are excited about what’s to come in the future of the series.

“Awesome, that was a sweet video as well. Such a good show but doesn’t quite get the audience it deserves. I try to turn everyone I can onto and also the books. More people = more viewers = more seasons,” a fan says about the series and novels.

Hopefully, the ‘whole story’ will be portrayed on-screen

A fan is hoping that all the novels will be portrayed if this trend continues, and that’s the hope of many fans who love Uhtred’s story. “Looking good that this show will be able to tell the ‘whole’ story of the books which makes me happy,” a Reddit user wrote. “It seemed pretty touch and go a few times that the show would end before it reached its conclusion but I think after this announcement there’s a fairly good chance we’ll get to complete the journey on-screen.”

Fans have a lot of hope for the future of the series now that season 5 of The Last Kingdom has been officially announced.
