The TV series first aired on our screens back in 2015 on the BBC before Netflix picked up the rights.
Despite there not being too much hype after its initial release, the show is now getting the recognition it deserves from fans – who say it’s better than Game of Thrones.

“Well better than Game Of Thrones. Don’t think there is a bad episode let alone a bad season,” another viewer posted.
Someone else added: “Finished all 5 seasons of The Last Kingdom today. Outstanding.”
The show is told from the perspective of Uhtred of Bebbanburg (Alexander Dreymon), a man born a Saxon and raised a Dane, who struggles with his conflicting loyalties throughout the series.
While The Last Kingdom wrapped up its fifth and final season earlier this year – fans of the hit series still have plenty to look forward to as a new film is coming soon.
The news of the film was announced by Dreymon at London Comic Con last year.
