The Last Kingdom sequel film “Seven Kings Must Die” now available

Seven Kings Must Die

The Last Kingdom followup film Seven Kings Must Die is finally available to watch – finally bringing a hopeful conclusion to the cult classic series.

The new sequel film is now available to stream as of April 14th. Fans can expect the sequel film to follow the story of The Last Kingdom, with Alexander Dreymon returning to play series protagonist Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

While avoiding spoilers, the series is based on Bernard Cornwell’s novels The Saxon Stories, which themselves are a loose retelling of the actual historical record of how England became a united kingdom (see what I did there).

“Uhtred must ride once more across a fractured kingdom with several of the series’ much-loved returning characters, as they battle alongside, and against, new allies and enemies,” reads the official description. “Following the death of King Edward, a battle for the crown ensues, as rival heirs and invaders compete for power. And when an alliance comes seeking Uhtred’s help in their plans, Uhtred faces a choice between those he cares for most, and the dream of forming a united England.”

Here’s a trailer for the new film:

Seven Kings Must Die was written by Martha Hillier, directed by Ed Bazalgette, and co-produced by Nigel Marchant, Gareth Neame and Mat Chaplin. Dreymon and Hillier also serve as executive producers.

“It has been such an honor to be part of telling this story for all these years,” said series star and executive producer Alexander Dreymon. “As an actor, I have been so challenged and gratified by the privilege of playing Uhtred. Hanging up Uhtred’s sword after filming ‘Seven Kings’ felt, ironically, heavy – even though I know that our tale has reached its conclusion. As an EP on the show, I could not be more proud of the hundreds of people who spent thousands of hours to make the best product possible. As for our loyal fans…what can I say? You are the reason we’ve reached this point and got to bring our saga to the end. This, as it always has been, is for you.”
