BBC Causes Viewer Outrage After Merlin Cancellation

The creators of BBC fantasy-drama Merlin took the time near the end of their fifth season last year to announce that they had taken the show as far as they wanted to and as such wanted to end production before declining in quality, a decision which the broadcaster accepted in fairly good grace. Ending its story ambiguously, it is the sort of closure that many legacy-protecting fans of TV shows will applaud, but there are of course many who will be left disappointed at the fact there are no new episodes. However, this was nothing compared to the unexpected passion shown from many viewers of the series, who have commented in droves demanding the return of Merlin for a season 6.

merlin_promoThe original story on World TV PC regarding the show’s cancellation, published on 26 November 2012, has racked up over 80 comments (87 at the time of writing), almost all of which are written by heartbroken fans longing for a renewal. Even more surprisingly, the story had been online for almost a month with only one low-key comment before the surge of further opinions arrived, presumably after a deluge of searches in reaction to the two-part final episode (“The Diamond of the Day”) concluded on 24 December.

The comments posted over the show have been almost unanimous in support for its renewal either with a sixth series or through a movie, and have continued throughout January as more territories around the world witness the finale.

World TV on PC reader Bilkar Singh wrote: “Can’t believe that this series 5 of Merlin will be its last, I was so looking forward to see the interaction between Merlin & Arthur in series 6, After Arthur eventually finds out Merlin’s secret, but it would seem that to be a dream, they should have drawn up a 10 year contract instead of 5 years, just incase the show was successful. Oh well, anyway I wish the cast & crew all the best for the future & hope there are plans for a movie in the pipeline in the near future.”

Fellow user ‘albian’ wrote: “It’s the best I have seen since Robin of Sherwood in the 1980′s. floods of tears here. I will be changing channels next week.”

Cheree commented: “I honestly thought the series will end on a better note, as well as the show actually being continued. This can NOT be the END!! Me and my fiance are really very disappointed!!”

“Please make the 6 Season, Merlin is so interesting I watch the series in English, even if I don’t understand everything, because I can’t wait until it is translated to my language,” wrote site user ‘Kristina from Germany’, while ‘Natalie’ added: “You’ve got to be kidding me this is ridiculous this show cannot end. It is one of few ‘clean’ shows left of tv and I would hate to see it end like this. Please bring it back it’s my favorite show, just one more season! and then another after that, then another and so on….”

Steve Sanger, the owner of World TV on PC, noted of the high interest in the fantasy-drama: “It is hard for production companies to find a golden nugget, and it seems crazy that when a hit show comes along that catches the public’s imagination – It gets cancelled.”

Having began life on BBC1 in 2008, Merlin ended on 65 episodes and 5 seasons, with the final installment reaching 7.8m viewers in its home UK market. While it has been suggested that there are talks from the BBC to renew the show, will such a move become a reality, or will the many disappointed viewers have to accept the news and move on?

First airing in 2008 on BBC1, Merlin is a popular TV fantasy-drama that stars Colin Morgan as ‘Merlin’ and Bradley James as ‘Arthur Pendragon’, in a story that is a reimagining of classic Arthurian legends. The show ran for five seasons and 65 episodes, averaging an audience of 7.13m in its final season of BBC1 broadcasts in 2012.

    It is extremely disappointing that it was cancelled considering the numerous storylines they have left unexplored, to end it was bad enough but no-one wanted Arthur or Merlin to die, it should have ended with Arthur returning alive to camelot and merlin beside with albion being born. Instead fans are left wanting more and disappointed with the ending of an amazing finale. Please bring it back, some of us have started a campaign to bring it back its starting out on facebook so if anyone has any hints or suggestions for contact people please leave us a message on bring back merlin offical or contact a guy called desi khan with the info. Please spread this to as many merlin fans as possible as they will on consider it if theres a lot of support.

    Thanks

    I will miss “Merlin” greatly but I see no way for it to continue. The series creators squandered S5 by stretching out the story and saving the reveal to the very end. We needed Arthur and Merlin to be together as a team AFTER Arthur found out. We needed to see the “Golden Age” explicitly rather than told it happened during the 3 years off-screen.

    It was actually the lure of a POTENTIAL S6 that had Johnny & Julian craft S5 with a last minute reveal. The cast were signed for 5 years. They weren’t interested in a 6th. So this is not on the shoulder of the BBC, it’s on Johnny & Julian. They didn’t make the story compelling enough for the cast to go one more year. I don’t blame the actors remotely. If it hadn’t been for their insistence that they not go farther, we’d still be “keeping the magic secret”.

    The two creators used “Smallville” as an example. Smallville stayed around 5 years too long.

    So, I’ll miss Merlin terribly. I really wish the best for it’s stars and hope that they all pick up new jobs. But I think it was their insistence to wrap up that at least got us some semblance of closure. J&J just didn’t get it until it was too late.

    This is the very reason I created the facebook page, together with a twitter account, not to become an everyday fan page, or a half-hearted albeit sincere attempt at bringing merlin back, but to become a true campaign, an action group of sensibly and smart creative actions to bring this show that we all love to our screens.

    We are already noticed by 2 members of the cast and im sure this is now 3-4 atleast.

    I invite you all to join us, not to simply discuss merlin, but to join all of us from all over the world, that have and are joining this group to take the same actions, at the same time and together, as one family to make our voices heard, and to bring Merlin back.

    Do not cancel Merlin! It is a wonderful show…the only one I care to watch.

    If Merlin leaves your network has nothing to offer.

    I was heartbroken when I discovered the BBC was cancelling Merlin. This show is a missing hybrid of quality entertainment, mythology and good ole’ story telling (retelling). We’ve grown to love the characters, the brotherhood of the Round table, the magical creatures, the adventures, the humor and the amazing Dragon … Merlin had it all … why would you cancel this show? Doesn’t Collin win best tv performer confirm how loved this show and these characters are??? Please summon back … the Merlin

    I agree with Sue that they squandered season 5. everyone wanted a season where merlin and arthur could actually work together to bring peace to the kingdom, and end the show with magic thriving. they could have had so many fun adventures together where they could actively USE Merlin’s and maybe also other sorcerers magic to help them. there could have been a few episodes dedicated to Arthur slowly accepting and trusting Merlin again, it would have been so rich and powerful but instead they went with over-used plot lines from previous seasons. OH LOOK, someone in the castle who is close to arthur is betraying him *cough* morgana, his uncle, gwen *cough*

    also they ended it in a way that would make it almost impossible to continue. they’d have to be like, oh hey, just forget the last 10 minutes of season 5 guys, it didn’t happen that way.

    I’m going to miss the show. i wish it would have ended differently, but i’m just going to have to imagine that it ended the way we all wanted it to, and stay in denial about what really happened. I mean, the ending is the whole reason everyone is so upset. its not THE FACT that the show has ended, its THE WAY the show ended.

    Yes The reason why i would like a season 6, Is to see how Arthur adjusts to Merlins magic! (I havent seen the ending, watching it here in the states) Tho I understand they fear it will run old of stories, But this show is greater then any show on television in my opinion and lots of other fans. I just think we need one more season of Merlin, They cant just leave us like this!

    My favourite t.v show will not be renewed. There are over 1 million facebook likes on the main plus all the fan pages to bring the show back. The show had great ratings, and the producers said that if there was a want for it, they would make a season 6, they lied.

    I am a middle-aged mum with 3 teen-adult kids and we love the show! It was our ritual every week and so disappointing that the producers rushed the ending so. It does not do justice to this incredible series which captured the hearts of millions – to us it was real in our hearts. There must be another season – it was just beginning with Arthur finally finding out about Merlin and in the end, accepting him. Arthur is the great king – how could they kill him off? It seems pointless all the close calls to come to this. But it can easily be re-written. It could easily be written so that all that happened from the crystal caves onwards was merely a premonition Merlin had to warn him that he must get to Mordrid first. Easy!!! I still cry when I see clips of the ending. It was shocking, disappointing and has left a big hole. PLEEEEAAASSSEEEEE bring Merling & Arthur back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Geri from Australia.

    Merlin must return!!!
    it was so sudden that they told us the end had come. and waiting for 5 years for merlin to reveal his magic, and Arthur know all he does and respect him, then what, see them all in just one episode!! an end just to show that it ends!!

    merlin is my favourite and i dont think about it as a series, for me its sth in my life, sth that makes me happy all the time…

    so i want it back and i have hope and i can take action for it!!!
    so i joined the page merlin2return and the leader admin really knows what to do and i have faith in him and i have hope that this can come true!!

    Such a shame they are not continuing with Merlin. It was such a fantastic show and I think the actors and actresses are what made it so watchable. I think the ending was not appropriate. Could have been much better especially considering it was to be the last.
    It appealed to all ages and I’d love to know why they cancelled it.

    **Bring back Merlin!**

    I can’t believe the economic crisis we have & the BBC still milking so much money out of us British Public for TV Licenses they fail to give us what we want! George Osborne said yesterday “Britain halfway to triple-dip recession as manufacturing sector stalls” then why not give Merlin Cast all their Jobs & continue this great show!
    The same show that In April 2008, U.S. broadcasting rights were purchased by NBC, This made it the first British drama in over 30 years to be shown on US network television.
    It’s such a great show it’s series was broadcasted in 183 countries with Series DVDs, Soundtrack CD’s & all the other Merchandise that was sold I really can not see how in this economic state the show has ended.

    In UK Merlin was on at the same time as X-Factor on ITV now if they was worried about ratings then the BBC made a booboo but the views Merlin had on iPlayer was incredible.

    The show must be back. I’m feeling cheated. They promised so much but gave nothing!!
    If they say they have covered all the stories then it’s again not true.
    They have to prove Merlin is a greatest sorcerer walk on earth. He saves Arthur by somehow going back in time and change future. that’s how they should continue the story. Whts the big deal! Merlin gets help from unknown every time he is in need. Like in “Crystal Cave” “The eye of the Phoenix” “The darkest hour” “the coming of Arthur” “Arthur’s Bane” “The hollow queen” “The dark tower” “etc, then Why can’t he have this time? Everything is possible if u believe. And we can’t know it’s impossible until we try,We all believe Merlin can return.
    I think it’s the easiest thing to bring it back for the people who’s job is to make great shows and Satisfy the fans and respect their wishes.
    I wish i have magic to bring Merlin back but i think it’s in the hand of wrong people. :(

    Johnny Capps was interviewed on 12th August 2012 and said that when they’d finished filming Season 5 they were looking to extend into Season 6 and a possible film trilogy. We know now that the films will never be made – not with the original cast members anyway and if that’s the case then what’s the point.

    At the end of September 2012 the cast and crew left Pierrefonds and headed back to the UK to finish filming in Cardiff and Claude Albouze, the Director in France, said that everyone wanted Season 6, the cast, the crew, the BBC and ShineTV.

    So, when it was announced on 26th November 2012 that Merlin would end with a ‘spectacular finale’ on Christmas Eve here in the UK I don’t think it is at all surprising that fans were left reeling. It was particularly difficult for UK fans to accept as there were only 5 episodes left to air and it didn’t seem possible that the writers would be able to wrap up all the storylines in the time that was left. But we gave them the benefit of the doubt…and we waited.

    Fans around the world who were still only on Season 4 weren’t sure what to make of the news that Merlin was ending. They still had a lot of storylines to go through so didn’t really understand the fuss fans in the UK were making. After all, shows end all the time don’t they?

    So The Diamond of the Day Part 2 aired on Christmas Eve and I, for one, have never been so deeply affected … grieving is what I said at the time and am still grieving a month later. The writers had said all along that the show would come to its ‘natural conclusion’ but I think we still hoped that they wouldn’t kill Arthur at the end and leave Merlin to roam the country for years all alone.

    Since Merlin Season 5 was released on DVD last week here in the UK it has come to light that Julian Murphy and Katie McGrath have done the audio commentary on the final episode. In it, Julian says that in one version of the Finale script they weren’t even going to do the reveal that Merlin had magic! What??? That to me speaks volumes. Is this why the final two episodes feel so rushed? Even Alexander Vlahos (Mordred) has said in interview that he felt it all ended a bit too quickly. There needed to be more of a story for Mordred and Morgana. No, I firmly believe that when they started filming Season 5 they FULLY INTENDED making Season 6.

    As each country finally gets to see the last episode their anger is growing too. Merlin has over 20 MILLION viewers world-wide. 20 MILLION! So I expect there will be many, many more complaints to come.

    I felt so strongly that the fans deserved a better ending that I joined facebook specifically to be part of a dedicated group working to get Merlin back on our screens. If you feel strongly about it too then you should come and let your voice be heard: http://www.facebook.com/merlin2return Twitter: @merlin2return

    It shouldn’t have ended the way it did, they left so much unexplored especially in my opinion how Merlin and Arthur’s friendship would grow even further now that he knew the truth!!!!! And i haven’t even mentioned the other legends and myths concerning Arthur that they could have explored while we saw their friendship deepen…. Please give us another season of Merlin!!!!

    I am fan from Germany and I am sure a lot of German fans will be heartbroken and shocked after the last episode of season 5 (Merlin season 6 will start in the middle of february). We have waited 5 years for nothing?? Why did they create such an end? How can you say that it ends on the high? There is so much more to tell about the story….we need a season where merlin and arthur could actually work together to bring peace to the kingdom, and end the show with magic thriving. they could have had so many fun adventures together, where they could actively USE Merlin’s and maybe also other sorcerers magic to help them. there could have been a few episodes dedicated to Arthur slowly accepting and trusting Merlin again.

    But if you have some fantasy, there still is the chance to continue this great show from the end of season 5….also with all cast members or most of the important members ;-).

    This is a true campaign, an action group of sensibly and smart creative actions to bring this show that we all love to our screens.

    I wasn’t such an avid watcher of Merlin, but I watched a few episodes including the finale, and I was really surprised the show had come to an end. Many of my friends watch Merlin, and they’ve told me about how disappointed they are about the conclusion, and to be honest, I am as well! This series sounds like it has some serious potential, and to just leave it there, when you could do so much more with it, it’s ridiculous. If you are concerned about the profit you will make off the show, I don’t think that will be a problem judging from the number of fans and some (slightly scary) hardcore diehard supporters which will fight tooth and claw to try to bring the show back.
    So if you are reading this, Mr Producer, I highly suggest you go find that contract you have, or whatever it is you need to do, and stop waffling around and bring back Merlin!

There is so much more that can be done regarding story lines, and the producers and all concerned need to get their act together.

    It had tremendous ratings – just does not make any sense.

    The end of season 5 was horrible. They killed Arthur, They killed sir Gwaine.
    Magic wasn’t even made legal at the end of the season, not to mention half the knights of the round table are dead. Sir Galahad wasn’t included in the show either and he was a knight of the round table. The great dragon could have sacrificed himself and that caused Arthur, Lancelot, Gwaine and Elyan to come back to lif but accidently bring Morgana and Mordred back too.
    They could have made Morgana change her name to Morgan Le Fay.
    They need some challenges with Merlin actually using magic in front of them and they could have half or the whole the season with Merlin still using it in secred but the knights and Arthur know and at the end they could end it with a golden age of some kind but thats just one theory on what could happen.
    Neverless, there has to be another season, they can’t just end it with Arthur dying and him knowing about Merlin’s magic for 2 days but for viewers it was only like 20 minutes.
    Imagine the relief that viewers would feel if there was a season 6 and I am sure that there will be more than one viewer that would be more than willing to give the BBC profit to help out if they don’t have enough.

    It’s lunacy that this show was cancelled; the conclusion left me – and I’m sure many (many) other fans – unsatisfied (to say the least). I believe that the show ultimately had to end where it did, but I feel that they rushed it. I think that just one more season could have allowed them the time that they needed to bring the show to an end that the fans could have been more easily able to accept.

    Myself and my family like so many others felt cheated at the ending of Merlin, I felt cheated and I was (for the first time in mylife over a show) in utter dispair and completely grief stricken that the BBC and Shine could end this beautiful show on such a horrible downer and all this on Christmas Eve, well It ruined my christmas eve night as did it for my husband and my kids. I have NEVER felt so much passion about a TV series before as I do for Merlin and I like every other loyal fan want to see Merlin picked up for another season. There are PLENTY of avenues and adventures still to be had, it is the time of myth and a time of magic. Anything is possible!

    If they say they have covered all the stories then it’s again not true. I am also writting scripts, so I am sure I can estimate it.

    How can Merlin be the greatest sorcerer walk on earth if he failed??

    The last 15 minutes of the last episode…I can’t watch it again.

    How could they say the fans will be please with this end and that you have to end it on a high. Where is the high??

    I just had the impression that to end it like this was a short decission…without thinking about the feelings of the fans all over the world.

    Look on the facebook pages and you will see how many fans are still missing Merlin and most of them want Merlin to be back.

    I am sure it is the easiest thing to bring it back for the people who’s job is to make great shows and satisfy the fans and respect their wishes.

    Please don’t wait till others will make Merlin to be back (may be under another show name)…..

    I will admit to being just as disappointed as other fans that Merlin finished after five series. It was a brilliant show, one of the best the BBC has done in a long time. However, as fans of Arthurian Legend will know, Arthur does die at the Battle Of Camlann, and he is killed by Mordred. As soon as the producers said they’d be doing Camlann, I knew there wouldn’t be a series six, and sadly this is something we as fans are going to have to get used to.

    SueMc January 26, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Connie – Even though the legend(s) of King Arthur are pretty much well known, the fact is that the battle at Camlann came too soon in Arthur’s life in the tv show Merlin. This is why the fans feel as strongly as they do and there has been such an outpouring of emotion from around the world.

    I know lots of people will agree with you when you say that fans need accept that the show is over and move on. Many will say that they were happy with the ending, that to them the sight of old Merlin walking the roads around Glastonbury told them that Arthur WOULD rise again when he was needed and that Merlin would be there waiting for him. But I didn’t see it like that and there are plenty of others, including cast members, who are’t happy with the way it ended either.

    I am glad that you enjoyed the show and that you have managed to accept the ending in all its gut-wrenching glory. We, however, don’t accept that it has to be over just because Capps and Murphy wrote it that way. After all, myths and legends are just stories and you can pretty much re-write them however you like – just as Capps and Murphy did.

    The fans on http://www.facebook.com/merlin2return strongly believe that we CAN make a difference and get Merlin back on our screens and we are all working hard to make that happen.

    Please, these writers and producers play fast and loose with this legend and I loved it, they could have done the same with the ending. So what Arthur died at Camlann in the legend, in the “legend” Morderd is his son for crying out loud and Arthur was a baby while Merlin was an old man when he got him. So I as many others thought and expected them to continue with their re-telling even at the end. They just need to admit they rushed it (for whatever reason) and screwed their fams over and then do use some of their own magic and grant so many of us our wish and bring Merlin back. Thanks

    I found a nice blog where others are also missing Merlin and want them to bring him back. Check out the awesome articles that just might say how you feel.
    http://www.merlin-arthur.com/hello-world/
    I also feel the ending of this show was a bit rushed, like they hadn’t planned to end it this soon. (wonder what happened behind the scenes,hmmm) I’m throughly dissapointed that a show with this many viewers/fans would end and end in this manner.
    I agree they need to bring it back and watch the viewership climb. Good decent television is a rear thing these days and this was a jewel. Please hear our crys.

    THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!! Finally, there is something good on TV, so what do they do? Take it off!!!!! Why?! Not enough income from boxsets/toys etc? Not enough awards? Shame on them. This was the best show on TV – AND WE WANT IT BACK!!
    Already we’ve managed to achieve the repeats on BBC3, so who’d bet against it? Come on “Merlin” fans – it’s up to us now, and who’d bet against fan power?

    When I watched the finale on christmas eve, I couldn’t believe the ending! Shock, anger, upset, all of which motivated me and another group to set up Merthurs.We all want this magical relationship back.They can’t just end it like this, it gave most of us fans no satisfaction.Every Merlin fans has there opinions on the finale.We respect all.But we are campaigning to bring Merlin back and we won’t stop until we succeed! We are 100% dedicated! If you feel the same and want a season 6 we would love you to join us at Merthurs group and become a Merthur.Together as One.For our love of Merlin that will never fade! https://www.facebook.com/merthursgrouptosavemerlin

    I think the Arthur and Merlin’s relationship is one of the main aspects of the show I miss. The brotherhood these two have. I know these kinds of friendships only comes along once or twice in a lifetime IF we are lucky.
    Seems like our society today lacks this kind of respect and integrity between one another and to see it on screen gives one hope that it is out there.
    This show gave us so much hope in so many different aspects, love, friendship, brotherhood, sisterhood, hope, integrity, spirituality(whether on purpose or not) and many others, and with the ending they gave, most of those were crushed while others left unfulfilled.
    I do so miss this show and all that it brought to my life. I do believe the actors had a great care and respect for one another and that’s what came across on the screen that made this show so AWESOME!!
    I believe it should be brought back and give the world what it needs the most, love, friendship and HOPE!!
    Please BBC, SyFy or someone Bring Back Merlin…Please!

    When i read, that Merlin is ending, i couldn’t belive it. And then, i cried for hours. This show is for me everything. Because of Merlin i met lot of good friends. This isn’t just some show, it was (and still is) my life.
    The story is brilliant, actors are awesome and everything is just so perfect. So please, if there’s any chance for Merlin to come back, it would be the best thing in the world!
    When i watched the finale episode on Christmas Eve, it was awful. Yes, the episode was brilliant, it had everything in it! But i was just thinking, it was the last time, i’d ever seen Merlin on TV and it is so sad.
    I love Merlin so much! So please, if there’s any chance, bring it back!

    Season five of Merlin was very very very disappointing! Half of the episodes were foolish and unnecessary. Your fans wanted to see Merlin’s destiny come true. We wanted to have more shows with Merlin’s secret revealed and Arthur’s acceptance of him. We DID NOT want four episodes of Gwen trying to kill Arthur and we definitely did not want Arthur to die the way he did. Talk about breaking your fans hearts. Best show in the universe. Even better than Lost! However we were ripped off with that last series.

    Please bring Merlin back, it’s one of the best shows on TV!!!! I’m 45 and have watched it from the beginning and so have my parents, in their late 60’s. It’s a show for everyone, young and old. Everything from the production quality to the acting is top notch, A+, and completely brilliant. Never has a show with this much scope been done this well. The locations are perfect, the castle, the horses, the clothing, swords and armour all fit together so well you believe Camelot truly exists.

    I have bought every season on DVD so far and will continue to buy anything else they make, I’ve even bought the soundtracks, having to buy imports from Amazon.com.

    I state again, please bring this show back, I cried when I heard it was over and will miss it so much I will have to watch my DVDs over and over just to feel like it’s still on. I believe there’s so much more story to tell that it could easily go on 5 more seasons and even carry on in movies as well. I was a fan of Stargate SG-1 and was so glad it lasted 10 seasons, I have the entire series on DVD and I bought both the movies as well. I’ve gone to over 14 conventions for the show and continue to follow the actors careers. I feel the same for Merlin, this is a show that has so much to say about our lives, virtue, honesty, truth and commitment that to end it now seems ridiculous and unjustified. The fans are here, we’re ready to watch, we’re commited to this show and everyone involved with it, please don’t take it away!!!!!

    If, as Julian Murphy said in November 2012, the intention was ALWAYS to finish Merlin at the end of Season 5 then why did he say in May 2012 (two months into filming) that there could possibly be a 6th Season??:
    http://www.cultbox.co.uk/interviews/exclusives/3620-julian-murphy-merlin-series-5-interview-part-2

    Surely if the intention had ALWAYS been to finish at the end of season 5 then they should have said so at the outset and not kept on about possible further seasons or movies.

    I agree with what some of the other contributors on here have said. Get better script writers and producers who care about the actors and the characters.

    I am very disappointed with the audio commentary on Season 5 DVDs as there are constant references to sexuality, homoeroticism and lesbianism so be warned if you normally let your children listen to these. Particularly the commentary for the very last episode by Julian Murphy and Katie McGrath which I found particularly offensive towards the actors and about symbolism in the show in general. I am glad he can have no further involvement in Merlin.

    I believe we CAN get Merlin back on our screens if we ALL work TOGETHER. Come and join us and make history! http://www.facebook.com/merlin2return.

    Creo todos tenemos que hacer algo al respecto, Merlin no puede acabar así, todos queríamos ver el momento en que Arturo supiera el secreto de Merlin y aunque ese momento llego se fue muy rápido, ¿Donde esta ese mundo que soñaba ver Merlin en camelot?, si nunca han sido tan seguidores de la historia real ¿Por que mataron a Arturo? Creo precisamente lo que le dio a la serie mayor popularidad es el hecho de haberle hecho cambios a la historia real y construir una historia nueva que todos los fans amamos. Espero todo esto llegue a los oídos de la BBC y los productores y tomen en serio seguir con la serie.
    De todas formas todos los fans estamos intentando hacer que se nos escuche a través de la pagina http://www.facebook.com/merlin2return así que si queremos un Merlin de vuelta ya saben amigos.

    There are a lot of possibilities to bring this fantastic show back…good scriptwriters can realize this and can make this show better and better.

    It did not end on a high….so many fans are dissapointed and much more fans will be dissapointed after seeing the last episode. In some countries season 5 will start soon, in other countries the last episode of season 5 will end soon.

    I got the impression something happened in the background and the producers and writers hurried up to end this show. But this end was a slap for all Merlin fans, waiting five years for something spectacular and not only for Arthurs death….

    Come on…you can make this much better…..bring us more seasons of Merlin.

    There is still a way to bring it back…..

    Well, the truth and was willing to see and accept it as the final out but then I saw her and thought it could not end like this, it is impossible for the cut to that end, I think almost everything in the story was unreal, and just the end and did horrible if the real (death of Arturo) I hope you can continue with the series, is really good, the simple fact that they have people in my country (Colombia) makes it awesome, watch merlin was a great experience, and I hope to keep it cool!

    they better do not continue because of some immature fan.go to tumblr and some site you’ll see that certain fan are very agressif and rude toward the actor.they take their dream for reality because they cannot do the difference beteween reality and fictiin.it’s very disgusting and sad.they have not the right to insult actor jusr
    because they hate the personnage or because the actor dosn’t fit to them.
    that why i understand their decision to move on.respect that.

  72. SueMc
    SueMc January 29, 2013 at 6:13 am

    I believe that the actors didn’t sign for a 6th Season because they weren’t happy with the scripts for Season 5. Of course, they can’t say that when they’re still working on the show. And don’t forget, it’s hard work for eight months of the year so by the end of every season they were saying how tired they were. BUT they were always happy to turn up for filming for the next season.

    I agree with Titi – there is absolutely no excuse for being aggressive or rude towards any actor whether they be in Merlin or any other tv series and it is disappointing that people (I won’t call them fans) feel the need to put such things in writing for everyone to see.

    I respect anyone who says they were happy with the way Merlin ended and feel strongly enough about that to post here. We cannot all be the same or feel the same way because that would make life very boring. But respect goes both ways.

  73. Anne
    Anne January 29, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Season 5 was not as good as I thought……not only the end….the whole season!

    May be the scriptwriters had finished with this show before writing the last season ;-).

    So there is still much more to tell and to make this story better and better.

    They need new srciptwriters to continue and it is also possible to continue from this end….

    There are million of fans (from different countries), who want Merlin to be back! They want to see new stories with the old actors…

    Viewers (fans) are important for such series, why not listen to their words??? The young viewers (and Merlin had a lot of them) will be the future viewers.

    I found a campaign on facebook, which is growing day by day. Those fans (from a lot of different countries all over the world) try their best, to make their voice heard. I joined this campaign, because I believe that you can reach the goal to bring Merlin back.

    May be you will also join this page?

    That is right, a true FAN respect the private life of the actors and their decisions…..and also the other fans…..but we do not know if the actors really wanted to quiet this show or why they wanted to quiet….(we only can see interviews…but may be some of the actors want to continue, some of them not and do you know if they can say what they want in this interviews??).

    Where is the problem to ask for more MERLIN….if so many FANS over the world want this great show back????

    That does not mean that the actors can’t go on with other projects…there is also the chance to jump into MERLIN again.

    I too thought the ending was rushed and it felt like it was thrown together. Kinda, well…we gotta finish this so how do we do it? TBH I don’t think all the actors wanted out. From interviews I’ve seen I heard some say they would love to continue with the show. I’m sure some did needed a break and after some time away they will be willing to return. Give them a great script and a huge number of fans who desperately want them back, how could they refuse.
    Either way we NEED more Merlin and a better ending than what we got.
    Let’s pull together and put the work in and make some noise and make it clear that we want/need more Merlin.

    Merlin is my families favourite TV show. We have bought all the Series on iTunes and are also ordering the box sets from Amazon to see the behind the seens etc. The whole family cried when Arthur died in Merlin’s arms.

    There was so much life left in the show and the ending did feel rushed. So little time was given to Arthur knowing about Merlin’s magic we would have loved to see more of that.

    Deeply sad that it ended.

    I’ll tell ya what’ outrageous. This weekend here in the States the “superbowl” will be played. Do you think I can sit and watch it with my child? NO! Why? Because of the commercials they will be showing. Filthy, gross, disgusting and not fit for human eyes, yet they want to cancel the best program I’ve come across in a VERY long time. One that I feel very comfortable tuning into and having my family sit together and having quality time. Why, when something so well written and produced and do they feel the need to yank it out from under us. Maybe it was an actor or producer or whatever that didn’t want to continue but ending a show is such a way as they did left not only the children with a feeling of evil winning over good but it left us parents with the loss of a show that teaches bravery, loyalty, integrity, caring, and a chance for our kids to see what love really is (and it isn’t about sex). I’m just errrrggggah right now. Bring back this wonderful show with it’s wonderful cast (who made it a JOYFUL time of television).

  80. Mikayla
    Mikayla February 3, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    I can not believe this show is ending, it’s been a time of fun, joy and hope. I saw the ending of the series online and I’m devastated and more that heart broken. I feel an emptiness and loneliness as it seems they’ve left Merlin with as well. I see no reason to change the tune of the series from doing things their own way (which I truly enjoyed) to doing the end the “Arthurian Legends” wrote things. I feel things need to be made right, according to show originally started out, doing their own spin on Merlin and Arthur. Give the loyal fans the story they were looking forward to for 5 years, the promise of an Golden Age where Arthur reigns with Merlin at his side with Magic being accepted.

    I just want to say what this show gave to me : Tears, Hope, Loyalty, Honesty, Pain, Anger, Friendship, Faith, Fun.
    And this are only a few things, that I listed right now. I was so upset when I watched the last episode.. it was like a stab to the heart, so painful. :'( I never watched a TV show and over ALL I never cried for one. I never watched a TV show for so long and I didn’t want, for nothing on this earth to miss ONE episode! And today when I re-watch all the old Episodes, all these things that has been promised to us in all these years, I am just disappointed. I can only say that they structured the last season really bad, if it wasn’t for the FANTASTIC acting of the cast (especially Colin Morgan) I would have quit watching this season after 6-7 Episodes, after I watched the end I WAS regretting to have ever watched this show, but then I thought and told to myself “what are you talking about?! YOU LOVE this show, you can’t regret to have started watching it”. My opinion is, the Fans LOVE this show to much, to let it go like that, it was not the end, that this show deserved. Please bring it back, this is a family show where all the FAMILY comes together and watch something that has QUALITY and nowadays, it is really rare to watch movies/tv shows that leaves you something ‘special’ in your heart. I don’t know if this message will be ever read by someone of the BBC, but I can say, Merlin will be forever in my heart, it left me beautiful and “bad” memories. I will never forget anything about this show and I am proud to be a part of this fandom, because I know, in some way we all feel the same about this show.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Merlin has to come back… I’m a high school kid here in American Samoa Waaay on the other side of the world away from the U.K but, this is the first tv show that I like to watch with my friends because it has a good story but THIS CAN’T BE THE ENDING…. I really was looking forward to some Merlin and Arthur bond in Camelot now that Arthur knows his powers…. Please come back….

    No!!!!!!!!!!!! I just saw the final episode and absolutely cannot believe the series is ending?!?!?!?!? Now that everyone knows who Merlin is, there is soooo much that can be done with the show. This is outrageous! Such a good show! Ending it for the fear of declining quality is just cowardliness, borderline evil! Common!

    so how do i feel well let me count the ways the BBC made me feel I am in my 30ts no child here
    up to the last eps:
    happiness , joy , egar to see every eps knowing that for 45 min i can relax with excellent acting , excellent storeys with values that are basically goon from TV like true friendship , true humer that actually makes you lol , romance , things that my kids and i can see together and soo much more.
    last eps :
    felt i was slapped on the face , bad story telling , felt as if who ever made this episode just put a lot of things *they* thought the fans wonted to see added to it that they who ever they are wonted to end the show with no regards to us viewers feelings and mix it all up to make the worst episode ever ! if this was the 1st episode of the show ( lets say kind Arthur is dead and the shows gos on to see him coming back to life ) the way the story was toled i would never ever followed a show written like that !

    There was ONLY 1 good thing to this eps and that was the acting !

    This is the ONLY series I used to watch on TV. Reading some of the comments, it’s obvious that the reason why we all got so attached to the series is that it brought our childhood memories back! The characters had a lot of charm, too. All this time we were waiting for Arthur to finally get to see the “real” Merlin and were already imagining how their relationship would be after that, when all of a sudden the series ends.

    This is MEAN, besides being a STUPID decision. The series has millions of fans, even in Turkey where I live. And just when it delivered what we were hoping for all this time, the creators decide they can just dump the fans and slip away with the truckloads of money they’ve made thanks to us!

    We need a 6th season (and many more after that)! We want our magical and affectionate universe back! Let this be heard by whoever decides on such things!

    Sad, upset, angry, disappointed. These are just some of the feelings that came along with the last eps. A brilliant show reduced to what, loneliness, failure, grief? What a downer. End on a high?

    The whole series was about protecting Author so he can bring peace and magic back to the land. It ends with him dead and magic being almost completely gone forever. I guess you could look at the ending optimistically, but the whole series was very poorly written.

    The driving force, I believe, was the cast and original concept, nothing more.

    I have a lot of feelings about this last episode: sadness, upset, angry, disappointed like a slap to all Merlin fans. How could they finish this brilliant show like this? How can they say it ended on a high…can’t see a high sorry? I found a global campaign from fans from the UK, they are acting together to bring Merlin back with more season (or season 6). http://www.merlin2return.com, facebook: http://www.faceboo.com/merlin2return or twitter: @merlin2return.

    Disappointment. That is a strong word but it is how I feel. The viewers have waited 5 seasons, faithfully, I might add, just for the Arthur, Merlin secret revealed scene. Not what I was expecting…at all. I am just sad I wasted all that time watching it and waiting for the magical moment just to have to ripped from the show. Disappointment. Augh..

    Please make a come back…PLEASE….I bet you.

    I still can’t believe the way that Merlin ended, it felt so rushed and so without closure. Mordryd and Morganna’s deaths were disappointing enough considering how much hype they got and why were the Dragons never given a proper ending. Kilgarrah was dying but a reason is never given for what happened to him and Aithusa. You never even see them in the same scene together. Arthur dying is just terrible and sloppy writing, some of the best bits of the season were in the last part where Merlin and Arthur talk and while the emotion was excellent they should have been given a lot more time on screen to develop it. Nope I loved Merlin but the BBC has annoyed me to no end with this waste of an ending. They cancel this show but keep stuff like Big Brother on. There is something seriously wrong with TV.

    I found Merlin on Netflix in December. My family and I gave it a @o$$ and were immediately hooked. Every night I announced to the family that it was time to see what Merlin was up to. We watched all the episodes that Netflix had to offer. I began a search to see if season 5 was available anywhere. I live in the US and season 5 is not yet available. What I did read, by accident, was how season 5 ends. I was shocked, hurt, and saddened. I can’t even share this news with my family because they haven’t seen any of season 5.
    I feel as if I lost a dear friend. PLEASE give Merlin a proper ending. We need a happy ending to this wonderful tale. There is enough sadness and heartache in the world. We watched this to escape all that. We need to see good triumph over evil and the hero be victorious.

    I’ve been following Merlin since it first aired in 2008. All that we had been led to believe throughout the series was Merlin’s Destiny, that when Arthur became King, Magic would be accepted in Camelot. What happened to that?! 10 mins during the very last episode is RIDICULOUS.. It was a rushed and bodged ‘end’.. when so many of the episodes were ‘wasted’ on old plot lines. Come on writers.. you can do better than that!!
    When I heard about the campaign on facebook Merlin2Return I joined up immediately as I believe this campaign WILL WORK!! So Join up.. what is stopping you?!

    how could they cancel merlin? are they trying to tell us their creativity is so limited that they cant keep up such a good show. walking dead was to be cancelled but they listened to fans now they can afford 3million dollar budget per episode so stop being silly. Next series we’ll support is game of thrones.

  120. Stig L. Grasser.se

    Hello BBC and all Merlin fans!

    I wrote some of this text on another site and here it is again:

    First of all I hope that my English is more or less ok. I’m not used to write in English and I don’t think any of you can understand me if I wrote this in Swedish…

    I don’t know if BBC read our messages but in my opinion; the fifth Merlin series was a disaster and very tedious. I think that the BBC-writers had misunderstood the story. The name was (and hopefully will be) Merlin! Not Morgana! So, Please BBC! Make a sixth series. Use the legend and let Arthur return to life – remember that England’s great writer, A. Conan Doyle had to resuscitate Sherlock Holmes! His readers demanded that.
    Let the Sidhe/Vilia, who earlier cured Merlin, cure Arthur, (You can read about the celtic Sidhe in this book, ISBN 0936878053, by John Matthews) and let even Gawain come back. It seemed to me that he rather fainted than died, and let them all have some wonderful adventures together now that all know about Merlin’s gift, like that episode there Arthur and Merlin met Gawain the first time – and … what happened with the Fisher king’s land?
    By the way. There is one fantastic part of the Merlin production that never has been mentioned anywhere and that is the music! It’s extremely well composed, wonderfully orchestrated and used in the series.

    In my eyes the whole meaning of the production was that Merlin in the end demonstrated his abilities for all in Camelot, and Arthur, Merlin and the other friends after that would have some wonderful adventures together.

    And. One curious thing was when the ‘baby dragon’ was born the dragon said to Merlin that this little white baby dragon will bring fortune to Camelot. Well, he didn’t. Why? So, please BBC! Time for a sixth season…

    A good idea for the BBC’s Merlin writers, as I can understand the difficulties, is to ask the public for ideas to the episodes.

    Colin/Merlin and Bradley/Arthur and the others have now become my friends and I do not want to lose them! Do you? And for me, they are like two brothers who, after all, deep down love and respect each other!

  121. Isje
    Isje February 25, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    Come on BBC! Don’t let it end this way. There are a lot of people who want a season 6! Look for us on Facebook (merlin2return)

    Lyuba Dutchak February 26, 2013 at 2:22 am

    Please bring the show back. There are many loyal fans who were not rewarded with the way this show had ended. Merlin should have had another season where Merlin’s power is revealed. It is unfair how the season ended! It was all for nothing! This should not have been the end and the story should have wrapped up with magic being practiced in Camelot and its people having Merlin as their protector and Arthur as their king.

  124. Kevin
    Kevin February 26, 2013 at 9:15 am

    Our family was just like Sydney’s (posted on the 24th of February). We started watching Merlin on Netflix and we *love* the show.

    One of the greatest things that my wife and I have found about the show is that the writing (so far, we are in season 1, episode 8) has not devolved into sensitive issues (i.e. se*uality).

    This way our young sons can watch it. Please BBC, bring it back. We want to watch them all.

    God bless.

    Tammy March 7, 2013 at 1:11 am

    How could they even think of ending Merlin the way they did. My family and I have been waiting five years for Merlin to truly be seen for the amazing character he is and what….. He finally reveals himself to Arthur and two days later he dies!!!!!! What is up with that? There needs to be at least another couple of seasons where Merlin can begin to grow as a sorcerer in front of others instead of behind closed doors and we can see Camelot once more start to embrace the beauty of magic instead of viewing it with fear and Hatred. BRING MERLIN BACK,,,,,,,,PLEASE!

  135. Alexandra van Caloen
    Alexandra van Caloen March 7, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    PLEASE give us at least one more episode.
    You cannot just leave us like that, on such a terrible ending! The characters deserve better!
    We have waited 5 long seasons for Arthur to discover Merlin’s magic and accept it, and what do we get?
    Less than 45 minutes of an agonizing Arthur that the most powerful sorcerer on Earth can’t even heal or transport a bit faster to the lake. Seriously? I mean, come on! Merlin and Arthur are a duo, the most wonderful team ever! We wanted to see them fight together, not watching Merlin cry, powerless, as his best friend dies exactly as it was prophesied! Makes you wonder…what was it all for, if Merlin and Arthur can’t even appreciate the full extent of everything they did for Albion?

  136. Evy Karambelas
    Evy Karambelas March 8, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    I’ve been watching Merlin from the very first episode, and I’m so angry at BBC for pulling it out before the finale. I’LL NEVER WATCH ANY PROGRAM ON BBC AGAIN. What you did was very cruel to us faithful viewers.

  137. Tom Lipari
    Tom Lipari March 8, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    So the Magic has gone out of the writers.
    They will not write anything new on Merlin or elsewhere. They have no more new thoughts – Life ends as young adults with only the doldrums to live out.
    It cannot BE that there is nothing else to say.
    I urge the writers/producers to reinvigorate and see the adventures to come.
    I will miss the friendships.

Don’t let this be another disappointment for me – I’m counting on you, producers, and so are a lot of other fans. Save “Merlin”!!!!!

  144. Nameless

    Merlin has been with me for many years and I cannot believe it must go. The ending literally left me in so much pain I could do nothing but cry and writhe in agony. I think a season 6 has so much potential – further interaction between Morgana and Arthur, Merlin and Arthur, the problems deriving from Arthur’s potential legalization of magic, etc, etc. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK THE BEST SHOW EVER!!!

    I would hate to see this show go away. I went through a lot of trouble to watch this last season because I live in the USA, where it doesnt even really broadcast and I finally catch up on the episodes just to find out that it got cancelled. It seems that if a show seems good and clean then its doomed to be cancelled. Everything else on TV seems to be a pathetic mind numbing reality show or sit-com. I have pretty much given up on today’s TV Broadcasters, I guess Ill just stick with my netflix and continue to boycott the Cable Television crap.

    Merlin cannot end this way . Why didn’t they use season 5 to let Arthur discover merlin magical powers at the beginning . Arthur could then realize what merlin all did for him. And the end of the story could then mean a magical fight between morgana and merlin.
    Bring back merlin…..please

    It is with great sadness that we learn of the demise of this program. A program that we truly appreciated and enjoyed. We have yet to watch the final episode as it airs here this evening and we will look forward to watching together as a family shortly.

    We have tried to look ahead as we did not want to see or hear any spoilers as we can not believe the biggest spoiler of all and that is the end of the program.
    So to the cast and crew of Merlin, we say a very sad goodbye and only hope and pray that the ‘powers’ that be will hear the sounds of the fans and bring it back… of course that is if that is what the cast and crew would like as well…
    thanks for all you have given to your audiences around the world.

    On behalf of my family we will miss this show but wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

    Just watched the last episode last night and so sad to see that this series is over.Our family has been watching it since the first episode and have never missed an episode. Sad to see trash shows continue and good family shows like Merlin cut short of what would be an epic program for years to come.I do wish it would continue but can only make a comment to voice my dissapointment to see such a show end. Sad to see a show made by BBC better than shows here in Canada and terminated. Sad to see it end…..please continue the series….always a fan

    i’m in Canada and I’m so disappointed in the ending of a great series. Obviously the producers are unable to see the huge international fan base and how popular the show is, or a decision to continue with season 6 and more would be an accomplished fact. Arthur and Merlin need to have the relationship we have all waited to see. Please reconsider and bring this show back be it in Arthurian era or in the 21st Century, Albion needs Arthur!

    The BBC are just hypocritical morons, all channels gauge viewings on their respective programmes and renew if it does well but with regards to merlin they didn’t bother, it was popular here and in the states, also got ratings to more than justify a sixth season and the excuse to not renew was piss poor at best. To cancel a show that’s done so well deserved a sixth season and many are lobbying for it to happen so hopefully they will renew if they had an ounce of common sense.

    I kind of really really hate them for the way they ended the show. I’ve never loved a show this much and at the same hate so god damn much for the ending… it was just… poor Merlin… no happily ever after that’s for sure. It seems as if Merlin failed…
    All they needed was one more episode and it would’ve been perfect.
    That being said I’d love the show to have several more seasons though.
    I swear I’ve been trying to get over this show but every time I watch a new show I just end up compering it to “Merlin”…

    … What have you done to me…

    This is the problem with bbc messing around with programs and discontinuing them it really annoys me and the storys ending was so disappointing and boring its like merlin and arthur save the day and then arthur dies hurray the end no you dont end a good series like that i will no longer be watching any bbc channels since i only tuned in for merlin looks like bbc 2 will lose alot of watchers specially if they thinking of scrapping doctor who aswell what are you doing bbc seriously…

    I have just finished watching the whole series from the start. I was hooked after the first few episodes. I feel absolutely gutted with with the ending. I am a grown man and felt like crying, it has saddened me so much. At least one new series should be made just to end the series on a high. Something like Arthur rises out of the water, resurected at albions time of need. And continues the sage along side Merlin, to rid the land of evil magic. Then end on a HIGH not damn low. Then we could all except its end BBC

    I agree that this is the best TV show ever made. As a true die hard Merlin fan I was very disappointed with the rushed ending. However, unlike all of you, I still think there’s hope for a season 6.

    Here’s why. Just because someone dies doesn’t mean they can’t be brought back to life. Gaius mentioned something about the Shee people having the power to resurrect the dead (without using dark magic).

    I thought a good finale would have been Merlin giving his life to the lady of the lake (who truly does trap him in the real legend out of her love for him; fraya in the show) in return to save Arthur. Then Arthur returns to camelot and unbans magic but lets Gaius head a court to determine good magic from bad magic etc. Then Gaius could release merlin from the lady of the lake with magic and season 6 could be the GOLDEN years. As far as villains you could have some stipulation that Mordrid drank from the cup of life and only Excalibur could kill him. Then Kilagros the aging dragon takes in Ethusula the baby dragon and raises it to be good but with Mordrif trying to corrup it it the whole season and trying to bring Morgana back as a wraith or a shade.

    Oh well. I’m just a fan. Not a writer.

    Lenny April 11, 2013 at 6:18 am

    I am dead set sick of amazing shows being canceled. But this isn’t about the others I’ve gotten hooked on and having them taken away to shortly. This is about how all I’ve amung many others I know and have read are very disappointed with how they have ended this. Have been watching and dreaming of the day Merlin tells Arthur he has magic. And I just finish season 5 to find season 6 is a no go. After Merlin finally tells Arthur. This is bull. I’m lossing my faith in the people whom make shows or air them. as I belive there made or aired by people who don’t know a great show when it slaps them in the face. No way a show as great as Merlin can be left like this. I for one am highly disappointed in the entertainment people of this day and age. They are hopeless and have no respect for a good thing or the public anymore. There is so much crappy shows that run for ages and the great shows get taken off too soon or at there finest moment. I am very much angry with how you left Merlin amung the other shows that many creators or tv stations have taken from us. Such as Tera nova, doll house, moonlight, stargate universe and many more

    what a freaking joke on us. you know, I LOVE TV, but its no shock that about 99 percent of what I call “good TV” is now off the air.

    you make us love these characters, we show our loyalty watching weekly, renting on Netflix, and telling friends, and you reward us by claiming you took it as far as you wanted to, and end it without a suitable ending

    take a note from farscape, who got cancelled and still had the HEART to make a final movie(peacekeeper wars) to close out the story.

    you don’t have us waste 5 years for a non ending unless you want a “firefly” type fan reaction

    By now most fans who have seen the final episodes and/or bought the dvds for their commentaries will understand that no-one cancelled the show. But I think it speaks volumes that fans are STILL posting here and asking for more episodes FOUR MONTHS after the finale aired in the UK. This show was more than just an escape from reality TV and more than just a fantasy. We fell in love with these characters and WE WANT MORE! What happended to the building of Albion…still only HINTED at during Season 5? How come the “White Dragon that bodes well for Albion and the future that Arthur and Merlin will build” … in the end, didn’t?? Why, when the show had nothing in common with any Arthurian legend, did it have to revert to legend for the end? It just doesn’t sit right. WE NEED MORE!!

    I just finished watching all seasons and episodes of Merlin. I was amazed at how well it turned out, it had become one of my favorite shows, considering I watch 23 shows a year and Merlin being within the top 3, I’d say you have done a hell of a job, BUT the way you left off…. well I will say it was a great ending however, I had hoped that we would see Merlin save Arthur they would return to Camelot and we could see the bond between the two boys change and grow, I would have really liked to see how they brought magic back and the struggles they would face in trying to filter out the bad from the good.

    This show made me laugh, cry, smile, angry, I truly felt as though we as viewers could feel so much of what the characters were going though that it made it realistic enough to us that our emotions responded accordingly. I hope to see the show picked up, or to see a movie made. I can’t express how well I think you would do or how pleased you would make the fans. Ending a show like Merlin after the fans have become so attached only makes them shy away from future shows, for fear, that it will only end in the same way.

    :)

    Disappointing… I’ve been hesitant to watch the final 5th season cause I’d been hearing about the end very bluntly from my friend (who refused to spoil it to me). I know I’m among fans who have since season 1 been waiting and at the edge of my seat for the episode when Merlin would reveal his magic to Arthur. And they end it just like that, killing Arthur? That…drains all my desire to bother with the 5th season. I might pretend it doesn’t exist… -__-

    Cancelling merlin is really heartbreaking. Devoted fans have followed growing each year. You don’t leave a show with people wanting more in the sence of anger for it back. Theres so much to tell. So much further you could go. I mean even just an alternat season 5. There are differnet futures to be told why not have fun with that? You leave a crowd of loyal fans satisified and hapoy, not sad or dissapointed wanting more so badly.

    I can’t believe the show is over!! I literally cried when I found out they were cancelling it!!!!! It is such an AMAZING show with action and adventure and most importantly, magic! There are so few good shows anymore, but this one is just great. I really wish they decide to bring it back!!! If they do I will be sooooooo happy! Although if they don’t……I wish the best of luck to the actors, they are all so amazing so I am looking forward to see if they will be in any other movies or shows. ‘Merlin’ is great and I with cry with tears of joy if they brought it back!

    Joann May 20, 2013 at 5:42 am

    I am more than sad, I am mad. I watched all of these years, waiting to see the interaction between Arthur and Merlin, only to have them kill Arthur off and walk away. I heard about it before it hit the US airwaves, I went on line, fast forwarded to the end in time to see him die and that was the last I viewed of any of the Merlin series. I refused to spend one more second of time devoted to a franchise who could care less about the fans. The writers, the producers … I will never, ever watch any other projects they have anything to do with and will try to stay away from anything the BBC has it’s hands in as they just don’t give a rats butt about completing a story line, just dump it in the middle and walk away. It was the worst of all possible choices to end anything. HATED IT!

    I was left a little disappointed with the ending… I mean I loved the show but the last two episodes felt rushed and I felt like when the Dragon said Arthur would live again and then he didn’t I was like WHAT?!?! WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?! Merlin’s journey wasn’t complete and I feel that a good season 6 to wrap everything into a tidy bow would be if they showed sorcery coming back to being okay and Merlin at Arthur’s side, Arthur being alive of course…. and Guinevere having a baby for a successor…. I think that would be a very satisfactory end.

    I absolutely love The Adventures of Merlin; the way that it is written, the interaction of the characters, the directing and the actors are all superb! It is my favorite TV show on, or it was! I would love to see this wonderful show continue to see the interaction of Merlin and Arthur now that Arthur knows who Merlin really is and what part he has played in his rise to the throne. I am heartbroken that my favorite characters are no more, except in reruns. Please reconsider….

  247. Beth Taylor
    Beth Taylor June 2, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Please re-do the ending, at least on the DVD. Give us a chance to fantasize that Arthur and Merlin continue on with many more adventures. There are so many potential stories that can be imagined, with Arthur, Merlin, and Gwen, and Gaius together. And give Gaius back his pre-season 5 dignity. His last words to Merlin – he will have his favorite foods ready for him upon his return trying to save Arthur? Come on, I’m sure that would not be a response from anyone in that situation.

    Sorry, late to the party. We just finished the final episode. I’m about to give up on anything on BBC. Do British studios have some type of fear of success? Whenever something begins to truly be popular, the studios decide to quit producing the show. Merlin, Torchwood, the past short season of Dr. Who and a number of others I could name.

    I had no clue that this show even existed until I came across it on Netflix. I instantly fell in love with it and I really can’t believe that they would end the show just like that. It deserves a 6th season. But I came across some confusion, is the 6th season being aired in France and if so how will we be able to watch it if you live in the U.S.

    Help!!!!

  253. Todd

    Please bring Merlin back. This is one of the greatest shows on TV. As a fan, I was heart broken that the story ended so abruptly. We waited five seasons to see the dynamics of Merlin and Arthur play out. Write a great script that will entice the cast to come back. Please, bring this great show back. You have a worldwide base of fans to support the show.

    Still bussy with season 5 but already dredding the end. It only just aired in south africa. Why does this always happen. Great show but no one to back it up. The suits just dont seem to care about the viewers. Yes it may have lost viewers but why alienate the fans still watching. I feel betrayed. It sad and dissapointing. It makes me want ro turn towards books – at least they usually get to give us great endings and listen to their fans. Cheers guys. Hopefully i will get over this

    This cannot be the end, we don’t know if Merlin came back to Camelot, or if Gwen accepts magic in the kingdom, and I will NOT accept that Gwaine is dead until they give him a proper goodbye, I still have the hope that he is alive *cries*

    This is my all-time FAVORITE show. I literally cried at the ending, which never happens, and have spent the last week since i wrapped it up in a terrible depression, eating nothing but cookies, BBQ,and chocolate milk. If there is not another season, i am convinced it will seriously damage my psychological health. Which is pathetic, but probably true.

    This is a series that has a HUGE number of followers, who all want the series to continue. Please reconsider. Based on the actual story, this could easily go into Author’s old age. Even if the actors had to be changed, it would be sad, but this may just be one series that could withstand it. Think about it; there’s money to be had!

    For me it is not that Merlin finished , but the way it finished. Killing Arthur, and leaving all the promises unrealised. I would be happy if a new ending is edited, not dificult in a land of magic and tv. With the original cast. Two or three episodes using scenes of the last 2 eps and some new scenes with the original cast shouldnt be that hard to put together. There are thousands of fans disapointed, are we not worth a tiny sacrific?

    Hey, I just wanted to say that Merlin is an amazing show, not only does it show courage and love, but also to face things that aren’t good. Its one of the rare shows that is a family fun movie! I hate to hear that it is canceling and I would really hope to see it continue. I think this show and its fans deserve another season. It would not only mean a lot to me, but to the whole public (and world) as a whole! I just say to consider it! I know i wouldn’t bother watching another TV show than this… please listen to the public. I’ve just been hooked on it, and the characters. Please listen to the public.

    it was the worst choice ever made. How on earth do you end such a nice epic as merlin in that way. I was seriously dissapointed when i leart that there would be no a season six :-(
    i believe it was a series being watched all over the world and it was no justice to dissapoint all those fans all over :-C
    i seriously hope that you guys will come up with the sixth and seventh series asap :-)

    Fabulous show.

    You fall in love with the plot, cast, and deep story lines then it is over. No silver lining and only a void to carry on. If the intention was to hurt fans and teach a lesson then lesson learned. All things have to end. But so much is left to be explored. We will be talking about this for years to come maybe that was the point. I won’t beg. But my wife and Isure wish there coukd be more. We respect the decision and applaud the writers for utterly breaking our hearts, but making it so we never fully move on. Great job to the actors!!!!!

We all felt letdown that it had to end that way!!! I consoled the kids telling them that there would HAVE TO BE a Season 6 that happens in the current day and age…and so I do HOPE it happens!! Bu then again…give us more of Merlin in the Camelot that we have grown to love! Give us more of Guinivere and Gaius and Perceval and Gwayne and of course, Arthur…and yes, even Morgana!!!!

I hoped merlin and Arthur would rule Camelot with magic, for many many years, I understand Arthur must die, but why so soon? Please, it’s all I think about all day, for weeks now. Hands down the best show I’ve seen in such a long time. The true love between the characters, was perfect.

    Please return Merlin I’m 13 years old and I am really interested in the series retelling the aurthurian legend of King Arthur. I always wish for the series to return and also tell my siblings but they think it’s nonsense. It’ll never return. This is why I’m begging you please return Merlin and same actors/ actresses back. Not only this will make me happy and excited but it will make millions of Merlin fans worldwide happy aswell. I know you can’t bring it back it’s understandable but at least try not because you were told but for your good heart and you listening to all the disappointed fans all around the world. PLEASE!!!! Thank you……. – Mele

    Merlin Fans are still fighting for another Season of the British TV show
    Have you heard of the heartbreak on Christmas 2012? Millions of solemn faces from children, parents, and grandparents alike were unable to spread Christmas cheer because of a tragedy that warped their holiday spirit. Now as that day approaches again, so does the 1st anniversary of the British TV show Merlin’s bitter conclusion. Even so, one man who was called to action brings a strategy of hope to combat the bellicose feelings lingering among this worldwide fan base.
    Five days after “The Diamond of the Day Part 2” aired in the UK on BBC, one man outfoxed the heartache with the spirit of King Arthur from legends by creating a page on Facebook. With his “Merlin – Join if You Want to Bring Merlin Back” page, fans had the chance to defend themselves, and though he humbly chose to remain anonymous, he strived to find others who would stand with him in his fight to save the show. What he has discovered is inspiring.
    To many, Merlin was unprecedented entertainment. It was known for its stories of magic, friendship and humor, being a form of escapism for viewers of all ages and nationalities. Each person warmly invited the characters Merlin, Arthur, Gwen and Morgana into their homes week after week, not as visitors, but as beloved family members who they were happy to see. But the producers chose to end the show on a death note: Merlin wandered into present day waiting for King Arthur’s return and Queen Guinevere became the only heir for the lost kingdom of Camelot.
    Fans all around the globe felt the betrayal as promises were left unfulfilled and doom withered the story they watched for 5 years. Now nearly 13,000 of them have joined the Merlin 2 Return campaign, inspired by other shows like Supernatural and Roswell that were saved by fan campaigns like this one. Their unity without a doubt proves the universal pain caused by Merlin’s finale.
    13 months have passed since the campaign head started Merlin 2 Return. A worldwide core team, who resembles the Knights of the Round Table, helps him across many social networks, encouraging members to keep believing. Together they have received awareness from acclaimed businesses Cards in the Post and The American Candy Company and sent postcards, cherry lifesaver candies, and fan-created ideas to BBC, ShineTV, alongside the main cast in hopes their deeds will motivate these professionals to bring Merlin back. In the process, the campaign has received an official letter from Alex Mahon, the CEO of ShineTV, stating her support and telling members that she’ll inform them when she has new information to tell regarding Merlin.
    Not all has been positive for Merlin 2 Return. During their year-long journey, fans have received rejections on more than one occasion from important people in the entertainment industry. One example is when they united to send parcels full of cherry lifesavers to the BBC Head of Drama, Ben Stephenson, with the request that the sweets be donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. There was no appreciation shown in regards to the time and money fans set forth and in fact, they were even denied any further knowledge in the matter by Mr. Stephenson himself.

    ABOUT MERLIN 2 RETURN
    Merlin 2 Return is a non-profit organization with members located worldwide, including in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Malaysia, and Egypt. On a voluntary basis, many of them have united to create their very own Camelot, a network based on non-discrimination and respect for mankind.
    The head of the Campaign, who founded this organization on December 29th, 2012, stands strong with close to 13,400 Merlin fans ready to confront the production team, ShineTV, and BBC for accountability on the sudden cancellation and tragic end of Merlin. Merlin 2 Return’s appeal is for the main cast members Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Katie Mcgrath, and Angel Coulby to reprise their roles in Merlin, and for ShineTV to carry on making Merlin, giving fans the resolve they need after suffering the betrayal that will otherwise damage the reputable image of the production companies and networks responsible.

    I am so disappointed that Merlin was cancelled. I really enjoyed looking at it on sunday’s on Syfy. Really hope that you change your minds about doing a season 6 for those of us who enjoyed watching Merlin and the way he kept things going. I am a Merlin fan also Arthur, Guinevere, Morgana the whole knight theme was very fascinating and I was looking forward the next season very sorry you feel that it was not good enough to warrant another season. Hopefully the producers, directors and actors will rethink this decision. Hope to see it in the future.

    When my friend first told me to watch this show i thought it seemed dumb but ever since the day i started watchin this on netflix this has been the best show ever. I just finished the last episode at 12:00 am and have never been so disappointed. You tried to fit to much into the last episode. Instead you had Arthur learn about Merlin mogona die Arthur die and then see merlin in the future walking the streets. The last episode has to be the worst i wanted Arthur to live to see merlin use magic even more and even if Arthur died i would have wanted Gwen to to meet the real merlin. This show was definetly cut short. This show could easly go on another 1 or 2 seasons.

    Well everything comes to its end; but we TV lovers always want our favorite shows keep on in continuation. I really admire Merlin and still want to have it back on TV, because it left many question behind in the last episode of 5th Season, such as “As the dragon said Author will raise again”, “How Merlin working on street of modern Albion(England)”, and so many others; but still I admire that writer has concluded it is a very beautiful manner.
    I hope to see you again Merlin in future. Love from Bambi!!

    This needs one more season! How can that be the ending of such a legendary tale! Arthur needs to come back ‘when Avalon is at it’s time of need’. So make another season about his return!

    Please bring Merlin back I love that show. It really sucks every time I get really into a show, it gets canceled just like THE LEGEND OF THE SEEKER. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE BOTH SHOWS BACK UP AND RUNNING FOR ANOTHER SEASON OR 2 AND MAYBE A MOVE. THIS REALLY BITS, NOW THERE IS NOTHING GOOD TO WATCH ON TV ANYMORE.

    Dear BBC, Merlin was one of the best tv series we have ever watched after Robin Hood..Indeed it is a disappointment to watch such a series to be end in such a hurry. There are many fans around the world for the series & it’s a pity if you just let them down.. Please consider Merlin season 6 as it had become a part in our life which we honestly value. Wish the crew & the cast all the best!

    Yes I am sad that Merlin only had 5 seasons.
    Isn’t there room for at least one more season where Arthur and Merlin have adventures together but Merlin is now his advisor and not his servant?
    I am sure the writers can think of lots of interesting stories for these 2 characters. All the other characters are great as well. Great cast, what a shame to end it!

    They actually left Merlin in an interesting position. Where they could bring Arthur back in Modern times because as The Great Dragon said that Arthur would rise again when Albions needed him again. The last scene in the series had Merlin walking past the lake where he had put Arthur’s body obviously checking to see if that day was the day for Arthur to rise. I don’t believe any motion picture or TV series that was live action told the story of Arthur Rosen in modern times.

  312. ELLAS
    ELLAS June 13, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    My thoughts exactly THEODORE.
    Though I would rather they create at least one more season to finish the story properly. They obviously rushed Season 5.
    The ending was not good IMO, all the hype to once and for all see Author become the great KING he was foretold to be, and Merlin by his side using magic for good.

    They really should release at least one more season. Season 5 left a bad taste in peoples mouths. Rectify that please.

    Please continue Merlin! Leaving it the way BBC did seemed rushed and unfair to all the careful and clever character development. This show seemed so unfinished — I would continue watching the show in a heartbeat!

    I recently just started watching Merlin a few days ago. I have finished all five seasons in three days because it was a very interesting show. I would very much appreciate it, if there would be more seasons to properly finish the Arthurian Legend. I feel like the last episode of the fifth season was really rushed to finish the ending of Merlin. This show is appropriate for all age groups and I believe it deserves a proper ending.

    Thank you for your time.

    Merlin must return!!! This was every cast member’s 15 minutes of fame! You won’t get any better roles than this. This show has and will have a cult following just like Dr. Who. You’re cheating yourselves out of a wonderful career and all the viewers out of the joy of this entertainment.

    Please consider returning to give us another good season or two. Be immortal. :)

    how could you end merlin like this,,,merlin’s fate is to protect arthur and create the albion. but both of them were failed..what happens to albion?…what happens to dragons final words at avalon “arthur will be the one true king”?…arthur has to rise from the death.otherwise dragons words become useless..what happened to merlin was not clear..what is the purpose of using a modern video clip at the end of the series.those questions must be answered in season 6….because this was not an excellent end for such a great story..

  321. chathura
    chathura July 22, 2014 at 9:49 am

    merlin and arthur has to create the albion where every one can live freely.people must know how much merlin did for camelot…what happens to aithusa was not clear..it must be the next great dragon under the command of a dragon lord, merlin..what happened to percival was not entirely clear,because he was heading avalon to protect arthur from morgana and then there was no clue of him.that s why i think this is not the best end for that story..BBC please come back with season 6 and give answers to those questions.then only you can deserve the credit for all your hard work

    I have never been so heartbroken and disappointed- to watch through five seasons, to wait for so long to watch the main character ultimately fail- he had one job, one job- how many times did he save his life only to fail when it was most important? The dragon’s last words were simply to mollify a hysterical Merlin- if Arthur were truly to rise again when Camelot needs him most, then why is Merlin toddling along in modern day UK when Camelot is long gone? Something that no longer exists cannot be in need. I have never been so angry at a damn show- no closure, no silver lining- they could have given the queen a baby bump, or had Arthur yell his name, echoing across the water as the bus passed, or, I don’t know, NOT killed a favoured knight last minute? It’s like the ending was written specifically to stomp a heart to pieces. Disgusting. Had I known I was watching the last episode, I would have turned it off at the beginning.

    We watched all 5 seasons on Netflix. I agree that for such a wonderful story, the ending left much to be desired. I would love to see more interaction between Merlin and Arthur as king now that he knows he’s magic. What ever happened to the white dragon? The dragon could have saved Arthur. Morgana was saved by a dragon. Merlin was supposed to protect Arthur. It really makes you look back and wonder why Merlin allowed the evil to conquer when it was in his power to change destiny. The ending really made Merlin look like a failure. I hated it. The producers seriously need to do a season 6 and fix the problems from the last episode. I loved the acting in the last episode, but I’m extremely disappointed that Arthur died. It shouldn’t have ended that way.

    watched the whole 5 seasons over the past month on netflix.
    several comments I agree with above:
    1) my five year old and I can enjoy this show together (and neither of us is bored or waiting for a part to fast forward through)
    2) with all the build up of the united kingdoms of albion, why the hell would we never actually get to see the world where magic is a part of everyday life?

    I literally watched the last 5 episodes in a row hoping to get to the revealing arthur ruling over his magical kingdom…instead we got a weak drawn out death just yards from Arthur’s salvation. terrible terrible ending. if not another season, there should have been a handful of new episodes. the show never actually got to what everyone was waiting and watching to see.

    epic fail bbc.

    Really LOVED this show! NO sex scenes, NO profanity, NO poor language. Family friendly. My children could watch it with me and I didn’t have to “worry” about language, nudity, steamy sex scenes or inappropriate content. PLEASE bring it back or at least do a spin off. I didn’t understand all the talk about Author ruling a new world WITH Merlin where magic was accepted in Camelot and there there was the ended where Author died and (Old) Merlin is walking down a road and a commercial truck passes by him. That was so strange to me. Maybe a movie will appease the fans. I know I would thoroughly enjoy it.
