The Last Kingdom has been branded ‘the best series in history’ by viewers. 

The Netflix drama, which is made up of five seasons, is set in 9th century medieval England and tells the story of the Vikings invading.

Viewers are heaping praise on the show, with one writing: “The Last Kingdom. Now that’s how you bring an end to a legendary TV series.

“Beautifully done. Can’t wait to watch it all over again. Destiny Is All.”

“Extremely captivating from its soundtrack to its staging in battle through history, everything, in general, is transmitted in an impressive way,” a second wrote. “This season has been really moving and for me, it is one of the best series in history. Masterpiece – 10/10.”

A third penned: “Finished The Last Kingdom. This is a much watch for anyone that enjoys peak fiction. Such a phenomenal series that will catch you by surprise. Top tier quality content.”

Controversial Film That Was ‘Banned In The US’ Now Available On Netflix

An official synopsis for the drama reads: “Captured as a boy and raised by Danes after his uncle usurps his birthright, Uhtred comes to identify himself as Danish but misfortune and hopes of reclaiming Bebbanburg drive him into the service of Wessex, the titular last kingdom of the Saxons.

A follow-up film, Seven Kings Must Die, has apparently already been filmed as part of the franchise.

Alexander Dreymon, who stars as Uhtred in the series, took to Instagram and said: “That’s a wrap on [The Last Kingdom], on Seven Kings Must Die, and on Uhtred, son of Uhtred.

“As you can tell, I’m slightly out of it, exhausted and overwhelmed. I feel so lucky that I got to live part-time in Uhtred’s skin for so many years. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all.”
