Oh, what wonderful news for you in this festive weekend at the end of the year: Netflix has announced that they have

The third season is currently airing on Netflix

renewed their super popular historical saga THE LAST KINGDOM for the fourth season (I’ve heard rumors, but don’t tell anyone, that they’ve actually secretly ordered the fifth season as well)! And you know what this means: you watched the third season, which is currently airing on Netflix, in great numbers!
The third season was shot by Carnival Films without BBC as the co-producer and has ten episodes instead of the usual eight. The season saw our hero, brave knight Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) break his bonds with disrespectful King Alfred of Wessex (David Dawson) and also with his Danish brothers. Hopefully, the fans won’t have to wait more than a year for the fourth season

The series has been a major success for the streaming network

like they did with the current one. So far, the writers have covered six novels of Bernard Cornwell’s 11 part saga the show is based upon. We can probably expect more battles for Uhtred and his merry gang of warriors and probably

not much peace for the courageous 10th century knight who still believes in his motto Destiny Is All! Will he finally win his father’s land of Bebbanburg and become the lord of his own kingdom? Will he find yet another wife?

Robin Hood 2010

In the year 1199, Robin Longstride (Russell Crowe) serves as a common archer in the army of King Richard the Lionheart (Danny Huston). A veteran of Richard’s crusade, he now takes part in the siege of Chalus Castle. Disillusioned and war-weary, he gives a frank but unflattering appraisal of the King’s conduct when the King asks his opinion, and Robin and his comrades—archers Allan A’Dayle (Alan Doyle) and Will Scarlett (Scott Grimes) and soldier Little John (Kevin Durand)—find themselves in the stocks.

When the King is slain during an attack on the castle, Robin and his men decide to free themselves and desert. They come across an ambush of the English royal guard by Godfrey (Mark Strong), an English knight who has conspired with King Philip of France to assassinate King Richard. After chasing Godfrey away, Robin decides to take advantage of the situation by having his men impersonate the dead English knights to return to England. Before they depart to sail across the Channel, Robin promises one of the dying knights, Sir Robert Locksley (Douglas Hodge), to return his sword to his father in Nottingham.

Awaking to find his party in the Thames estuary, Robin must continue to assume the identity of Locksley to inform the royal family of King Richard’s death. He witnesses the coronation of King John (Oscar Isaac), who orders the collection of harsh new taxes and dispatches Godfrey to the North to do so—unaware that Godfrey will instead use French troops to stir up unrest and to prepare for King Philip to invade England.

Robin and his companions head to Nottingham, where Locksley’s elderly and blind father, Sir Walter (Max von Sydow), asks him to continue impersonating his son to prevent the Crown from seizing the Locksley family lands. Locksley’s widow, Lady Marian (Cate Blanchett), is initially cold toward Robin, but warms to him when he and his men merrily recover tithed grain for the townsfolk to plant.

Admin Favorite

Godfrey’s actions incite the northern barons, who march to meet King John. Speaking now for Sir Walter, Robin proposes that King John agree to a charter of rights to ensure the rights of every Englishman and to unite his country. Having realized Godfrey’s deception, and knowing he must meet the French invasion with an army, the King agrees. Meanwhile, French marauders plunder Nottingham. Robin and the northern barons arrive to stop Godfrey’s men, but not before Godfrey has slain the blind Sir Walter.

“Cursed” 2019

   ‘CURSED’ ARTHURIAN SAGA
CASTS KATHERINE LANGFORD AS NIMUE, LADY OF THE LAKE
 

Netflix is preparing fantasy historical serial CURSED based on Arthurian legends and now they’ve cast 13 Reasons Why’s Katherine Langford as famous Lady of the Lake, Nimue! Zetna Fuentes will direct and executive produce the ten-part series.
CURSED  is, as ‘Deadline’ reports, a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue (Katherine Langford), a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther. It is a coming of age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.
The series will be based on the comic book based on Arthurian legends
Golden Globe nominee Langdon will lead the cast
