Season three of The Last Kingdom launches on Netflix next month as a ten-part box set, featuring a host of new characters including Ola Rapace (Hassel) as Danish warrior Bloodhair, Thea Sofie Loch Næss (One Night in Oslo) as the dangerous seer Skade, and Magnus Bruun (Below The Surface) as Cnut.
Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) is captured by Danes and raised as their own. But as he embarks on a quest to reclaim his birthright, he is forced to tread a dangerous path between both sides and play his part in the birth of a new nation.
In season three, King Alfred (David Dawson) begins to consider his legacy as his dream of uniting the kingdoms of England is jeopardised by incessant Danish attacks, and he knows that the only man with the power to crush the uprising and secure the Wessex dynasty is Uhtred.
However, as their volatile relationship reaches breaking point, Uhtred must confront the difficult truth: if he deserts Alfred’s cause, everything he has fought for will be forever changed.
The Last Kingdom season three launches on Netflix in the US and UK on 19th November, with a global release to follow at a later date.
