The Last Kingdom on Netflix comes to an end with Uhtred succeeding King Edward as Lord of Northumbria and regaining his ancestral home of Bebbanburg.

That’s why we came to a group decision. We knew, however, that there were a few more books, following on from where we were at the end of season. 5. So we started talking to Netflix pretty early about whether we could tell that final piece of the puzzle so it would feel complete.”
According to what he said, “Seven Kings Must Die” would serve more as an epilogue and stand on its own from the main story. According to Marchant, the plot of the film is set up in such a way that everyone in the audience can enjoy it. However, it looks like Seven Kings Must Die will somehow be integrated into the Last Kingdom story. Ultimately, Seven Kings Must Die will likely serve as both a series finale for devoted fans and a means to expand Last Kingdom’s fandom.
