The epic ending to the story of Uhtred of Bebbanburg will be shown in the movie Seven Kings Must Die after the Netflix show The Last Kingdom ends. Seven Kings Must Die is still being filmed in Hungary, so we expect to see it on Netflix sometime in 2023. Here’s what we know so far about the Netflix show Seven Kings Must Die.
Seven Kings Must Die is a fictitious historical drama movie coming out soon on Netflix. It is a sequel to the TV series The Last Kingdom. The movie is the next part of a series based on Bernard Cornwell’s amazing Saxon Stories books.
After two seasons, the BBC stopped making The Last Kingdom, but Netflix picked up the show. The streaming service was already working with the BBC on the show because The Last Kingdom was already available outside of the UK as a Netflix Original. Three more great seasons were made, and with the movie coming out soon, we’ll get to see how the story of Uhtred of Bebbanburg ends in a dramatic and epic way.
Season 5 of The Last Kingdom came out on March 9, 2022, on Netflix.
Who’s behind Seven Kings Must Die?
A clapper said that the movie will be directed by the British man Ed Bazalgette. Bazalgette has already directed episodes of The Last Kingdom in seasons 3 and 4. (he served as an executive producer for the fourth season too).
Bazalgette has worked on more than just The Last Kingdom. He has also worked on Poldark, Doctor Who, Versailles, and The Witcher on Netflix.
When does Seven Kings Must Die come out on Netflix? (Release Date)
With filming currently ongoing in Hungary we might not be seeing Seven Kings Must Die on Netflix in 2022. A full release date is many months away from being confirmed, but we know that Seven Kings Must Die will be released sometime in 2023.
How far along is the movie Seven Kings Must Die?
At the end of January 2022, an official tweet from The Last Kingdom confirmed that Seven Kings Must Die is currently being filmed in Hungary.
