The Last Kingdom is a British historical fiction television series based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories series of novels. The first series of eight episodes premiered on 10 October 2015 on BBC America, and on BBC Two in the UK on 22 October 2015. A second series of eight episodes began airing on BBC Two in the UK in March 2017, co-produced by Netflix after the exit of BBC America. A third season will air exclusively on the streaming service on 19th November 2018.
The series is set in the late 9th century AD, when England is divided into seven separate kingdoms. The Anglo-Saxon lands are gradually attacked, plundered, and effectively ruled by Viking Danes in many areas. The Kingdom of Wessex remains the last major stronghold against the Danes.
The protagonist is Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Several men of that name existed and ruled Bebbanburg (Bamburgh Castle), but little is known of their actual lives. In short historic sections at the end of each book, Bernard Cornwell explains that he is descended from them and decided to invent a history based on actual historic events.
