Published

In April 2020, The Last Kingdom returned for its fourth season, with Uhtred of Bebbanburg determined to defeat his opponents and reclaim his homeland. However, the return has been delayed ever since.

The first four seasons of The Last Kingdom was based on the first eight books in Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories series of historical novels about the birth of England in the ninth and tenth centuries. However, prolific author Cornwell has written a further five novels, leaving plenty of material for The Last Kingdom team to go through for the upcoming fifth season and beyond.

Here’s all you need to know about The Last Kingdom Season 5.

Is The Last Kingdom Season 5 going to be renewed?

Netflix has confirmed that The Last Kingdom will be renewed for a fifth season, although no release date has been announced.

“We are incredibly pleased with The Last Kingdom, which continues to captivate audiences all around the world,” Nigel Marchant, Executive Producer of Carnival Films, said of the renewal.

He added, “We’re happy to be bringing it back for season five on Netflix after such a positive response to the last season. We’re happy to give fans a chance to join Uhtred on the next step of his mission, especially because he has such a dedicated fanbase.”

Alexander Dreymon (Uhtred) told Variety in an interview, “The response from the audience has been incredible. It’s all been based on word-of-mouth. We haven’t had a lot of advertising in the past. Despite everything, we manage to stay afloat, and it’s all owing to the supporters. They’re really helpful, courteous, and passionate. We’re all really appreciative.”

Dreymon issued a statement (via Metro) in response to the story, admitting that he directed at least one episode of the last season. “It’s been a dream come true to play Uhtred for five seasons. And I’m really thankful for the opportunity to direct. As a result, I was able to appreciate even more the incredible ability and skill of our cast and crew. I’m excited to share it with our audience, since none of this would be possible without them.”

The fifth season wrapped its production in June 2021, and it appeared like Uhtred’s adventures were coming to a close. Dreymon, on the other hand, said at a virtual panel at MCM Comic Con in London last month that he would be donning his armour once more for a two-hour film that will conclude Uhtred’s saga.

The film’s climax, titled Seven Kings Must Die, is set to begin production in Budapest early next year. Fans are already guessing about what the feature-length episode will be about, with fans of Cornwell’s novels pointing out that the title might be a reference to a line from his book Death of Kings, in which Uhtred is given a terrifying prophecy:

“Uhtred of Bebbanburg, seven kings and the ladies you love will perish… it is your fate. And Alfred’s son will not govern, and Wessex will perish, and the Saxon will murder what he loves, and the Danes will acquire all, and nothing will change, and everything will be the same as it has always been.”

Executive producer Nigel Marchant stated in a Netflix statement announcing the film: “Despite the fact that season five brings the series to a close, there was always one more tale we wanted to tell. We couldn’t resist one final voyage with Uhtred, thanks to Netflix’s fantastic support and the fans’ insatiable thirst for more.”

3 trashy reality TV shows on Netflix

Published

By

Reality TV shows are scripted, yes.They are also considered trashy by many as they hardly add any value to your daily life.A lot of people find them to be vain, but sometimes, that’s exactly what you need.The heavy doses of entertainment and drama they provide are just the icing on the cake.

#1
‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’

Keeping Up with the Kardashians gives you drama, catfights, fashion, flashy lifestyles, and a lot of gossip.To watch the Kardashian-Jenner siblings talk about their lives around their kitchen island and conduct staged fights feels entertaining.The fact that the show mostly has no dull moments works the most in its favor.This is why it was one of the longest-running reality shows.

#2
‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills takes you through the lives of several women in the posh locality of Beverly Hills.“The women attempt to balance their ever-evolving friendships with the demands of family life and growing business ventures, but a string of shocking events proves that living this large is more than meets the eye,” reads the synopsis of the 11-season-long show.

Has Netflix Reached its Peak?

Published

on

By

Trying to watch some of Netflix’s more recent series all the way through, says Paul Weiner, feels a bit like cramming frankfurters down your throat in a hotdog eating contest.

Readers outside the US may not share the American enthusiasm for competitive hotdog swallowing. But maybe they can relate to the feeling.

We’ve all spent the last few years, the last two especially, binge-watching, indiscriminately, too mesmerised to click the off-button.

Are we maybe just a little bit sick of it?

That’s the fear seizing executives in Netflix’s boardroom right now. That Mr Weiner, a 28-year-old artist from Denver, Colorado, who loved the streaming service at first, especially for watching old favourites like Star Trek and The Office, typifies a new mood. That after years of skyrocketing subscriber growth, people will switch off, not just their television sets, but their direct debits too.

“Netflix lost some of my favourite shows,” says Mr Weiner. “And I never know which show will disappear next.”

He thinks there’s more clickbait than there was – enticing teaser clips that don’t live up to expectations – and some poor writing.

“There are better streaming deals than Netflix right now,” he says.

Netflix was the first to introduce households to TV-on-tap in 2007, entering popular culture with its avalanche of output, and even spawning the phrase “Netflix and chill” as a euphemism for staying in to have sex. But since then many other streaming services have followed Netflix’s lead, including HBO, Disney, Apple and Amazon, making it an increasingly crowded market.

“I’ve been with them from the beginning. They have some good shows, but they’re not the only player in the market now,” he says.

And he’s not a fan of the other plan Netflix is reported to be contemplating: cracking down on customers who share passwords with other households.

“If Netflix is going to go after people who have a subscription, they’re going to annoy them,” Mr Biggins predicts. And it may not have the outcome they’re hoping for.

Aram Asai Munoz, a law student in Santiago, Chile, has shared a Netflix account with his parents and sister, who live in separate households, for several years.

Since he first signed up – eager to tune in to crime drama Better Call Saul – the monthly cost of the service has roughly doubled, he says.

Many of his friends have already cancelled over the price hikes and quality of content and he says he might well do the same if the firm does clamp down on password sharing – after all Netflix is a “frivolity” compared to the other bills that need paying, he says.

The Resident Has Added A Brat Pack Alum To Season 5

Published

By

Fox medical drama The Resident is going to be seeing some big changes in the remaining episodes of Season 5. On top of Emily VanCamp’s return in the upcoming finale, Brat Pack alum Andrew McCarthy has joined the cast.

Via Deadline, Andrew McCarthy will recur in the final three episodes of Season 5 of The Resident as Dr. Ian Sullivan. As a charming and narcissistic pediatric surgeon of considerable talent, he plays hero to his patients at the hospital, but his relationship with his daughter isn’t so straightforward. That’s not surprising, as The Resident‘s official Twitter account reveals that his daughter is none other than Cade.

If The Resident is renewed for a sixth season, McCarthy’s role reportedly has the potential of being upped to series regular. Since we still don’t know too much about Cade and her backstory, introducing her surgeon father could be the perfect way to air out any other secrets that she’s hiding.

Aside from that, McCarthy has also appeared on Gossip Girl, Good Girls, Lipstick Jungle, and 13 Reasons Why, among others. He has also directed episodes of shows including Good Girls, Condor, The Blacklist, Orange Is the New Black, and Lipstick Jungle.

There is no word yet on a Season 6 of The Resident, but news can come at any time now. Hopefully, there is another season since it seems like Dr. Ian Sullivan could make for some very interesting storylines, especially if Cade turns out to be the next love interest that Conrad pursues.

Fingers crossed that news on a sixth season comes out soon, but in the meantime, new episodes of The Resident air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX! Andrew McCarthy’s first episode airs on Tuesday, May 3. Check out CinemaBlend’s 2022 TV schedule to see what else to look forward to.

We’re going to see them really at odds for the first time in this season. It’ll be also tied into some surprises in Devon’s career. While the Carol-Raptor is obviously the emotional and dominant story in the episode, that rabies medical case is really cool and one I really love for the show. It’s also great because Conrad-Devon working together is the meat and potatoes of our show. But this wonderful success that they have opens up unexpected possibilities for Devon because it’s a very rare thing to cure rabies, to save someone who’s already been bitten. Based on the complications with Leela and suddenly he’s blowing up in a scientific way, there’s a lot of drama and potential pitfalls and we settle it in a really cool way in [the finale].

How significant is the danger to Conrad (Matt Czuchry) when it comes to what’s going on with the fake prescriptions? Or is that more something Cade (Kaley Ronayne) has to worry about?

Yes. In Episode 20, it comes to a head because they have an unexpected patient in the emergency room who holds the key for breaking open the story and the case and off that, there are some interesting and scary moments for both of them that will lead to a lot of the action and drama that we lay out from [Episode] 20 through 21, 22, and 23. It’s a pivotal — while 19 is a very pivotal episode, Episode 20 just really lights a burner under the stories as we go forward and finish the season.
