The adventures of Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) should continue in “The Last Kingdom” Season 4, but there is still no news of the show being renewed. But with the TV series settling into its new home, the fans can expect an announcement about the release date and the production soon.

Fans who are concerned about “The Last Kingdom” getting canceled should remember that the news of the production of Season 3 was made after a bulk of the filming was already complete. The show was in danger of ending with Season 2, but Netflix swooped in and saved the series.

So when will Netflix announce a renewal of “The Last Kingdom”? According to Netflix Life, the streaming service usually announces a renewal a few months after releasing the latest season. This means that the fans will not have to wait too long to hear the good news.

As for the release date, the report noted that there is generally a gap of 12 to 14 months before the new season airs. If the production starts on schedule, the fans can expect to watch “The Last Kingdom” Season 4 sometime between November 2019 to January 2020.

The renewal, at this point, is a question of when rather than if. According to Business Insider, the TV series has already delivered a hit with its third season, which focuses on a tale full of shocking deaths and twists. As far as the future stories are concerned, there is enough of the source material left for Uhtred to fight his way to glory.

Dreymon was also asked this very important question about the “Last Kingdom” Season 4 renewal in an interview with Cheddar. The actor said that it wasn’t official yet, but they are “gearing up” for it. Given the success of the show and the confidence of the lead actor, the announcement should come soon.

Talking about the changes in “The Last Kingdom” after getting picked up by Netflix, Dreymon said that the third season is more “epic” and “bloody.” The actor said that Netflix has a hands-off approach, and the cast and crew are allowed to do what they love. This is expected to continue in Season 4.

There has been a surge in the popularity of epic dramas in a medieval setting. From “Game of Thrones” to “Vikings” and now “The Last Kingdom,” the audience can’t seem to have enough of these shows. Dreymon, however, is of the opinion that it is the story that attracts the fans rather than the setting. He pointed out that there are many popular shows with a contemporary setting at the moment too.
