When will Seven Kings Must Die come out?
Sources say that Seven Kings Must Die doesn’t have a confirmed release date yet, but based on what we do know, we can make a good guess about when it might come out. Alexander Dreymon, who plays the lead role, said on Instagram that filming for the project began in January 2022 and is still going on as of March. But it makes sense that production will be shorter than usual, since the crew only makes about two hours of content instead of the 10 hours that a typical season of The Last Kingdom has. With that in mind, Seven Kings Must Die is more likely to come out in early 2023.

What is the ‘ Seven Kings must Die’ All About?
Producer Nigel Marchant told Radio Times that the film would be based on the last three volumes in Cornwell’s Saxon Series: War of the Wolf, Sword of Kings, and War Lord. We were aware that there would be additional books set after Season 5. As a result, we did initiate discussions with Netflix early on to see if we might provide that final missing element.

The film adaptation was viewed as the optimal medium for this purpose. Marchant added that the film would be its entity and an excellent entry point for new fans of the series: Season 5 really does feel like the series finale, and the film will be much more self-contained. Fans of the TV program will enjoy it even more, but newcomers to the show will also enjoy it. In addition, fans have long wondered what happened to Uhtred’s third child, Osbert, and the film may reveal his whereabouts throughout the show’s fourth season.

According to HITC, Alexander Dreymon, who played Uhtred of Bebbanburg in the first film, confirmed his return to the role in a January 2022 behind-the-scenes video. After Arnas Fedaravicius was spotted in the background of the video, Dreymon’s post indicated that the actor would be reprising his role as Uhtred’s ally Sihtric. Dreymon also had a video that purported to show Finan actor Mark Rowley on the film’s set, although this was never verified.
