The Last Kingdom has never shied away from killing off beloved characters and the final season is no exception, bidding farewell to several new and returning faces.
The historical drama stars Alexander Dreymon as warrior Uhtred of Bebbanburg, whose violent life story plays out against the backdrop of early English history.
The action-packed saga will continue in a one-off feature-length special titled Seven Kings Must Die, which executive producer Nigel Marchant describes as a “standalone” chapter that will be accessible even to complete newcomers.
We don’t know yet who will be returning for the sequel movie, but certain members of The Last Kingdom cast can now be ruled out of contention after meeting their fate in the latest episodes.
Read on to find out who dies in The Last Kingdom season 5 on Netflix, but be warned that major spoilers follow.
Who is Osbert? The Kid Hild Brings to Bebbanburg at the End of The Last Kingdom?
After Uhtred and Edward defeat their enemies, we see tons of celebratory reunions. One major one, though, happens off-screen. But it happens!
Good old Hild is hurrying to Babbenburg with a kid named Osbert. The teen is hoping someone at the fortress can tell him about his father. Hild confirms this is the case because…yes! Uhtred is Osbert’s father. Hardcore fans will remember Osbert was Uhtred’s name before his older brother died and he was re-baptized with his father’s name.
It’s easy to forget, but Osbert is the baby that Uhtred’s wife Gisela died giving birth to ages and ages ago. He was adopted by the church and has therefore escaped most of his family’s adventures. Osbert is Young Uhtred and Stiorra’s full sibling, so it would have been interesting to see that reunion. (Osbert is also the boy Hild says is too young to help Uhtred in The Last Kingdom Season 5 Episode 9.)
LAST KINGDOM has been renewed for season five and fans are wondering who will be killed off next. Was Uhtred Ragnarsson supposed to die in the series? By

The Last Kingdom is a popular Netflix series based on The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell. The series follows Uhtred of Bebbanburg (played by Alexander Dreymon), who was born Saxon but was raised by Danes. Fans believe Uhtred Ragnarsson should be dead, as they have spotted a historical inaccuracy.
Destiny is all! And Netflix’s The Last Kingdom has finally met its destiny. The Last Kingdom Season 5 premiered on Netflix today showing us how Uhtred of Bebbanburg’s (Alexander Dreymon) story finally ends. We saw the warrior’s final showdown with Brida (Emily Cox), his tragic farewell to lady love Aethelflaed (Millie Brady), and Uhtred’s long-awaited return to Bebbanburg. So how exactly does Netflix’s The Last Kingdom end?
The Last Kingdom is based on Bernard Corwnwall’s best-selling Saxon Stories. Those sweeping historic novels follow a mostly fictional character named Uhtred who rubs elbows with Saxons and Danes during a tumultuous time in English history. Uhtred was born a Saxon, but after his father’s fortress at Bebbanburg was overrun by Danes, he and a girl named Brida were adopted by the warriors. For the last five seasons, Uhtred has fallen in love, fought with valor, and changed the course of history. His one true goal? Reclaiming Bebbanburg for himself and his children.
So what happens in the final moments of The Last Kingdom? Will there be more seasons of The Last Kingdom? Here’s everything you need to know about The Last Kingdom Season 5’s finale…
