Will Edward die in The Last Kingdom season 5?

The Last Kingdom series four landed on earlier in 2020 and the season finale included a tense battle between the Saxons and Danes after the latter took control of Winchester.

Edward was left helpless and called on the support of Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) and his friends in order to drive the Danes out.

The young king had a lot to lose as his mother, wife and sons were being held as prisoners within the kingdom.

In the end, Uhtred persuaded Sigtryggr to take part in peace talks with Edward and Aethelflaed. They managed to come to an agreement which saw Uhtred's son Stiorra (Ruby Hartley) leave with Sigtryggr.

Thankfully both of Edward's sons lived, and Uhtred was given the task of raising Aethelstan (Caspar Griffiths) to be a strong leader.

Fans will also be interested to find out how Uhtred has dealt with looking after the young Aethelstan, who will have to learn how to survive against the Danes.

Some fans believe Edward will die in season five in order for Aethelstan to take over as the king.

"Brida [Emily Cox] will die or do a complete 180 from this last season after having her baby. Either Sihtric [Arnas Fedaravičius] or Finan [Mark Rowley] will die. I think Osferth [Ewan Mitchell] will be the next
