Seven Kings Must Die 2

2015 was truly a good year for TV as we had the best of the best gracing our screens from Game of Thrones and Mr Robot to Super Girl. Netflix themselves were at their peak with the likes of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Sense8 and The Last Kingdom. That last one especially caught people’s eye, what with epic action shows like Vikings and Game of Thrones being successful hits. Well, The Last Kingdom went on to create its own fandom with tons of fans falling for Uhtred and the newest take on Vikings.

The Last Kingdom gave us an already-established Anglo-Saxon Britain, closely following The Saxon Stories books by legendary historical fiction author Bernard Cornwell. While the show came to an end in 2022, fans were further blessed as execs decide to give them closure with the movie The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die.

Well, if you have seen it, like every other viewer, you may be looking for its sequel. But will there be a Seven Kings Must Die 2? Or is there little chance of a follow-up film? Here’s what we know at the time of writing.

Please note: this article contains spoilers about the film’s ending!

What is Seven Kings Must Die about?

After the events of The Last Kingdom, it seems that there is peace with King Edward ruling peacefully and Uhtred finally regaining Bebbanburg while half-brothers Aethelstan and Aelfweard call it a truce. However, years later, after the King’s death, the obvious succession of Aethelstan as the eldest son is jeopardized as everyone clamours for the throne.

Aelfweard turns traitor, eyeing the throne for himself. Meanwhile, warring factions from as far as Irland decide to make themselves known and decide to create chaos. Amidst the betrayal and bloodshed, Edward’s remaining family runs to Uhtred who had hoped to retire from the politics of Briton. Unable to turn a blind eye to Aethelstan who he had raised, Uhtred decides to enter the fray and unite the kingdom.

Will there be a Seven Kings Must Die 2?

At the time of writing, a sequel to Seven Kings Must Die has not been announced. The Last Kingdom was cancelled after 5 seasons and to wrap up Uhtred’s story, Netflix announced a final film which was Seven Kings Must Die.

But it should be noted that Netflix usually greenlights a sequel for their original films if they do exceptionally well which includes critical ratings as well as its reception worldwide. With all that in mind, there’s a chance of a sequel.

What could happen in Seven Kings Must Die 2?

The Last Kingdom and its movie Seven Kings Must Die follows the book series, The Saxon Stories. The Netflix show loosely followed the first 11 books. Similarly, Seven Kings Must Die uses the premise of the last 2 books Sword of Kings and War Lord. After Uhtred and Aethelstan defeat their enemies, they form a deal to unite the kingdom. To see his dream of a united England, Uhtred pledges his land of Northumbria to Aethelstan’s kingdom. 

If we are to get a sequel, it would have to stray from the source material. It may focus more on Aethelstan’s rule as the first king of a united England. With Seven Kings Must Die having an open ending, no one knows if Uhtred dies or not as he is severely wounded in the last battle. The sequel could also finally give us his last remaining days, helping Aethelstan or spending his last days in his home.

When could Seven Kings Must Die 2 be released?

A film was in the talks back in 2020 when season 4 was released. After the show’s cancellation was announced in 2021, the film Seven Kings Must Die was confirmed at London Comic-Con. After season 5 finished filming in 2021, the film’s production began in 2022. Filming finished in March 2022 with a release date of April 2023. So, if we do get a sequel, filming would take place in 2024 with it being released possibly in early 2025.

Of course, this is all speculation as there has been no official news regarding a second movie. Keep an eye out for this section as we will update readers if there is any news.

  13. I loved the series and enjoyed the movie, but they crammed too much into 7 Kings. I felt like I watched a full season in fast- forward.
