the last kingdom

Netflix has come on board for the second series of 'The Last Kingdom'. The streaming service will co-produce the next series of the historical drama along with the BBC.

The BBC series is based on Bernard Cornwell's bestselling series of novels, set in the Vikings versus Saxons era.

The next series will also see some new additions to the cast. Peter McDonald ('Thirteen'), Thure Lindhardt ('The Bridge') and Millie Brady ('Legend') are all coming on board. They join original cast members Alexander Dreymon, David Dawson and Emily Cox.

Series two sees Uhtred (Dreymon) continuing to fight for his native land of Northumbria. He also sets off on a voyage to avenge Earl Ragnar's death and recapture his ancestral lands of Bebbanburg.

Filming has already started in Bucharest.

The BBC and Netflix are also working together on the new remake of 'Watership Down'. The BBC has also worked with Netflix's rival streaming service Amazon Prime Video on 'Ripper Street'.

The second series of 'The Last Kingdom' will air in 2017 on the BBC on these shores, and on Netflix outside the UK.
