Netflix has unveiled the release date and first photos for “The Last Kingdom” followup movie “Seven Kings Must Die”.

The movie will debut on the giant streamer on April 14. 

“Seven Kings Must Die” continues the story of “The Last Kingdom”, which aired its fifth and final season on Netflix in 2022. 

Dreymon once again plays Uhtred of Bebbanburg who rides once more across a fractured kingdom with several of the series’ much-loved returning characters. Following the death of King Edward, a battle for the crown ensues, as rival heirs and invaders compete for power. 

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” is scripted by Martha Hillier and produced by Nigel Marchant, Gareth Neame, and Mat Chaplin. Ed Bazalgette is the director. Dreymon and Hillier serve as executive producers.

It is produced by Carnival Films, which is part of Universal International Studios, and distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal International Distribution.

“The Last Kingdom” originally debuted in 2015 on BBC Two before being fully acquired by Netflix going into its third season. 

The show has proven to be incredibly popular and ranked no. 14 on Nielsen’s list of most streamed original shows of 2022.
