Seven Kings Must Die trailer released by Netflix

Netflix has released the first trailer for Seven Kings Must Die, a movie which continues the story of The Last Kingdom.

The Last Kingdom aired its fifth and final season on Netflix last year, but series producer Nigel Marchant said that while the last season of the show was meant to “fully conclude the series, there was always one more story that we wanted to tell,” leading to the announcement of the movie in 2021.

Alexander Dreymon stars in Seven Kings Must Die as Uhtred of Bebbanburg, who “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. 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.

Seven Kings Must Die was written by Martha Hillier, directed by Ed Bazalgette, and produced by Nigel Marchant, Gareth Neame and Mat Chaplin. In addition to starring in the movie, Alexander Dreymon also executive produces the project. “It has been such an honor to be part of telling this story for all these years,” Dreymon told Variety last month. “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.The Last Kingdom is one of those shows I’ve had in my queue for ages but have never found the time for; there are only so many hours in the day. Perhaps I should finally make the time now that the story is nearing its end.

Seven Kings Must Die will debut on Netflix on April 14th. What did you think of the trailer for Seven Kings Must Die?
