The show follows Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories -The Pagan Lord and The Empty Throne. It focuses on the biblical drama during the 9th-century England. Pagan Viking intruders have conquered Christian Saxon empires – minus one, King Alfred’s Wessex.
Every Season has covered two books of this series. Till now Six books are included. This means Season 4 will focus on the seventh and eighth part of the book series. The description for them goes –
Uhtred, once Alfred’s great soldier but now out of courtesy with the new king, must begin a troop of outcasts north to retake his old family home, that great Northumbrian fortress, Bebbanburg.
It continues – Honors will be divided, and men will fall, as all Saxon kingdom is pulled into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes; a battle which will decide the destiny of every king, and the whole English nation. This sounds exciting, as who doesn’t want to watch the War. The struggle will be at the apex. Challenges will be more sturdy than ever.
