The Last Kingdom season five was given the green light by in the summer of 2020 and fans are keen to find out what happens next for Uhtred (played by Alexander Dreymon) and his friends. The Last Kingdom's fourth instalment arrived on in early 2020 and it picked up immediately after the death of King Alfred. Now fans are keen to find out if David Dawson will return as the King in a flashback in the upcoming season.

Will David Dawson return in flashbacks as King Alfred?

Like the real King Alfred, Dawson's character had suffered from a long and undiagnosed illness, and he was unable to fulfil his dream of uniting kingdoms in England.

However, he had faith that his family, with the help of Uhtred, would continue his legacy and eventually find peace with the Danes.

Season four saw many feuds between the Saxons following Alfred's death, as his wife Aelswith (Eliza Butterworth) came to terms with her loss.

There was also a dispute between his children Aethelflaed (Millie Brady) and King Edward (Timothy Innes), as Edward was forced to get used to his new position of power.

Season four ended with Uhtred and Edward coming to an agreement with the Danish warrior Sigtryggr (Eysteinn Sigurðarson) who had attempted to take over Winchester.

With the Danes now out of Winchester and Edward's son Aethelstan (Caspar Griffiths) in line to be the next king, fans are wondering whether Dawson will return in flashbacks to guide his family.

The real Alfred the Great won many battles during his reign, including the Battle of Edington in the year 878, which in turn created the concept of Danelaw.

Danelaw represented which parts of England were dominated by Vikings, and which were under the leadership of the Saxons.

Alfred the Great died in 899 when he was in his early 50s, and he left behind a legacy as a Christian hero.

Although Dawson has not mentioned a return to the series, there is a chance he could appear in the form of flashbacks or visions as his children attempt to live out his dream.
