The first season of The Last Kingdom debuted in November 2015, followed by another two installments in 2017 and 2018. The show has received positive reviews from the critics as well as the audience.

However, Bruun’s revelation of removing his beard felt somehow wistful. The fans thought that he might be wrapped up his filming for the entire series. To that, Bruun made clear that he has just filmed the last scene for this season.
I hope this doesn't mean what I think it means; I hope it just means Cnut gets a snazzy new hair cut for season 5!
