“This is our land, OUR England.”
BBC AMERICA’s new original series, The Last Kingdom, is a contemporary story of redemption, vengeance and self-discovery set against the birth of England. The eight part drama series follows young warrior and outsider, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon, American Horror Story), on a fierce mission to reclaim his birthright.
The Last Kingdom comes from the award-winning executive producers of Downton Abbey, Gareth Neame and Nigel Marchant. Adapted from Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling series of books “The Saxon Stories,” by BAFTA nominated and RTS award-winning writer Stephen Butchard, The Last Kingdom combines real historical figures and events with fiction, re-telling the history of King Alfred the Great and his desire to unite the many separate kingdoms into what would become England. The Last Kingdom premieres Saturday, October 10, 10:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA.
