On June 16, 2021, fans were treated to an image of Uhtred in season 5 via the official social media channels. The image features the name of the show at the top right of the photo. Uhtred can be seen in the middle, complete with his sword on his back. He is looking rather serious as he looks off, and his hair, which is short on the sides and shaved and also longer on the top, is up and back out of his face. It looks like he has a braid in it, and his hair seems a lot longer than the last time we saw Uhtred in season 4. He’s in a shirt with warrior attire on as well.

At the bottom of the image, a quote from Uhtred can be seen. “’If I die, I will haunt you to the end of your days…’ -Uhtred,” it says. It’s unclear exactly where he is based on the image though.

Alexander Dreymon is tagged in the image on Instagram, and the post is captioned, “It’s time to look ahead… The journey continues but who will join the quest and who will fall? #thelastkingdom #TLK5.”
