BBC Merlin Casts Final Spell With December Farewell

Popular BBC One fantasy series Merlin has been confirmed as ending after its current fifth series, according to the broadcaster, effectively dismissing some of the previous rumours about the show hinted at the San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

While the current season still has 3 episodes left to air, the show will be concluded with a two-part Christmas special, which will have brought the total episode count for the 2008-starting fantasy to 65 by the end of its run in 2012.

Merlin’s co-creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy confirmed the news in a joint statement, as they summarised the impact of the medieval-set series: “This is the series where the storylines truly reach their apex. We always felt the story of the legend was best told across five series, leading to a spectacular finale that draws on the best known elements of this much-loved story and brings to a conclusion the battle for Camelot. We’d like to thank the amazing cast and crew for their professionalism and dedication, the BBC, FME and all of our partners globally for their incredible support and encouragement across the last five series. But chiefly, our thanks go to Merlin’s remarkable and loyal audience around the world for their enthusiasm for the characters and Camelot universe.”

BBC One’s channel controller Danny Cohen added of future plans for Merlin’s timeslot and the legacy it leaves behind: “Merlin’s mix of magic, adventure and humour quickly became a hit with BBC One audiences and has continued to thrill families over the last five years on Saturday nights. I admire the creators’ decision to end Merlin on a high, but also know that we will miss it in the BBC One schedule. On behalf of BBC One I would like to thank Shine and all those involved in the making of the show both on and off screen. I hope fans will tune in over the coming weeks to see the spectacularly dramatic final episodes, and we have ambitious plans for new drama in the Saturday evening slot in 2013.”

Merlin is obviously a very popular show and has plenty more material that can be used for future shows or even a movie. Let’s hope the powers that be can get together, see the fans reactions and make it happen.

    Cant beleve 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 Merlins secret, But it would seem that to be a dream,(MY THOUGHTS) They should have drawn up a 10 year contract instead of 5 years, just incase the show was sucessful..
    ow well, any way 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

    You take a dragon, with that voice, a wizard and a king and the writers can’t seem to imagine a season 6. So a legend comes to an end, then create a new one. Newsflash! It’s called ‘imagination’ will someone please inform the writers!

    Morgana lives again… Just badly injured and white dragons saves her… Arthur get’s back he’s life in sacred place…
    Nimueh is returned as ally for Morgana! (Hot) :)
    And Freya is returnd ar Merlin’s ally… Magic is allowed and King respects it…
    No one know, how really everything happened… History is history… But if Arthur is dead, there was no point of Merlin’s Magic and Arthur’s suffer in his quests at all… LONG LIVE THE KING! :)

There we go a sort of idea to start with! Please please please make a season 6 I’m really sad that it might be over! :( :’(

    Merlin in modern day will be awesome, sure it’s re-inventing the story. But that will make for epic viewing. Must say it is highly disappointing if it all ends once Arthur finds out. The story of Arthur and Merlin has so much more to give. All the other characters as significant as they were, wouldn’t need to be there.

  42. sinzui-F

  43. nadine
    nadine January 5, 2013 at 10:08 am

    no affence but i did not wait 5 years just for it to end like that I was hoping there was going to be a season 6 because when the dragon said “for when albines needs are greatest Arthur will rise again” I thot that ment more seasons and more a adventures but no hopefully one day they will but it won’t be the same because if you saw the last on at the end merlin is OLD now. No good any more I will still watch the other ones but just going to be a waste of time. And 1 more thing the only reason I kept watching this was because i wanted to see and adventure with merlin using his magic pertecting Arthur and not hiding who he really is. Hopefully more will come and hopefully no change but only the fact that Arthur knows merlin has magic.

  44. Matteen
    Matteen January 6, 2013 at 6:01 am

    it has not been a single day that i missed watching Merlin i have been watching Merlin since the first episode of the first season and yet i have not missed 1 episode of it and all i have been hearing along was that Merlin’s destiny is to protect Arthur and without him magic will never be allowed in Camelot so for this 5 years all they did was create a BIG QUESTION in our mind about what will happen next and just easily say show is over? come on i have been dying to see Arthur’s act to Merlin’s secret and how he will build the new world the Albians longed for and how he will unite the 5 kingdoms and also Morgana had a dream of Emrys saying is this what you really wanted Morgana and that did not happen in the show hows it possible a High Priestess has a vision of her death and always hears that Emrys is her destiny and Emrys is her doom and at the end she is so easily killed by a sword and the scene takes like 1 minute it should have been a tough way to kill her like should have taken an episode so now i plead that they make the season 6 of Merlin covering how Arthur will build his new kingdom without the policy of sorcerers should be killed and how he will unite the 5 kingdoms and how Morgana’s dream comes true of when Merlin says “Is this what you really wanted Morgana”

    i personally think that it should not of ended this way, i have been watching it on chanel ten and not on the bbc and i watched the final episode last night, it can’t just end this way though. someone needs to find the directors and producers twitter or something, contact them and get a new series. i read online that they want a new series but the actor that play arthur wanted to leave the series on a high note. what the hell ! it waasnt a high note he died in 5 minutes. they could easily create a new series and even a 7th. i have some ideas, merlin arrives home at camelot and finds that gwen or something is pregnant or missing arthur and merlin vows to ressurect arthuer but merlin comes across hurdles, the high priestess are against the defiance of merlin and say that they will wage war against camelot if merlin is going to resurect arthur. merlin trys but cant resurect arthur but the high priestess do not know this and wage war against camelot and all the 5 kingdoms in a rage, this is when arthur rises to help fight for camelot and saves that day, they could easily do this and even move on and create more drama and a season 7. merlin can not end this way, i can bet that the producers and director were not very happy about this. i do believe that there is a 50 % chance on a new season but the producers have to get the actors to resign the contract. :( :( i know that alot of people didnt want it to end and i wasnt able to sleep last night thinking about how it ended. there are so many possibilities for a new season

    You guyz should calm urself down, this story of merlin ending is a untrue, do u guyz rememba the title of serise 5 “the end is only the begining” so am certain that the wil be a series six and even more……. But they most do something about arthur death & as 4 mordred he is still alive cuz he’s starve with just a mortal bleed, and as 4 morgana they mst do sumtin on her death likewise arthur too.

    i hate the ending of merlin it sucks. The question is how will magic return to camelot. Modern day merlin will be boring. We want season six. Am a nigerian and every one hates the ending in my country. Atleast gwen should give birth to arthur’s child and merlin shouldn’t be a slave anymore. If arthur is realy dead, WHO WILL BE THE NEXT PENDRAGON? After gwen dies?

Wat about the land of Albion.. The Dragon always speaks about… Merlin destiny is to protect Arthur.. He can’t die in his hands

  61. MissingMerlin
    MissingMerlin January 12, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    I don’t think any Merlin fans have recovered since the final episode aired on Christmas Eve, I know I haven’t. It’s good to see that so many people were disappointed with the ending especially after Colin Morgan said he thought we’d all be satisfied. I do wonder if a lot of scenes were cut in order to get the final two episodes ‘in the can’? It certainly felt rushed to me. The BBC had nothing to do with the series being cancelled. They, together with Shine, Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, as well as the French director for the stuff filmed at Chateau de Pierrefonds ALL wanted a series 6. Whether the stories about the cast wanting to ‘go out on a high’ and ‘leave the fans wanting more’ and ‘moving on to do other things’ are true or not I guess we will never know. However, IF talks are continuing now Johnny and Julian have set up their own independent company about a possible film trilogy I’m afraid it just won’t work if the same cast don’t sign up for it.

    We need merlin season6 IF not for anything at least, to prove to us that merlin’s ROLE, EFFORT, MAGIC, DESTINY and HOPE to make Arthur the king and that through Arthur magic will be free again come to pass. Merlin and even Arthur himself kept telling there enemies he is NOT his father (Uther) and in his OWN TIME things will be different. How will all this happen IF Arthur is dead? If season 6 is not to bring and keep Arthur alive, then there is no need for it because, the greatest mistake u will make again is to bring a re-placement for Arthur OR say he has a SON who will replace him. Just let the wizard bring Arthur back to life do some little episode and end it. Then we will be happy and satisfied and even buy the movie after it has ended because there wont be any tragedy in MERLIN anymore. Mark my word if you do this merlin wil win the award for the best movie of the year and the best seasonal film EVER. I have notice that most seasonal movies end with tragedy BUT if yours CAN be different then, i tell you, you will get a different and UNIQUE award. Dont do what others are doing so that the joy we have in watching merlin from the begining dont end on the way…………please and please i beg of u, make Arthur live again plssssssssssssssssssss

    Thank God the dragon said Arthur wil rise again, (please we dont want NEW Arthur OR Arthur’ son from Gwene to Rule as king,our old Arthur will do well) this has made it easier or the wizard to bring back the king Alive. Arthur needs to know who Emrys is. He needs to see and know how much the young warlock has done for him. Arthur needs to believe magic is not evil so that Emrys can be the real person he is. Season 6 should be more of magic, let Arthur live again and watch what merlin has done and CAN still do for him and camelot……….i cant wait to watch season 6…….wowwwwwwwww

    Have Merlin restore the white dragon, it’s suppose to be a rare dragon with special powers and abilities. It brought back Morgana from the brink of death so have it bring back Arthur in a similar fashion, then you can show Merlin forge a new friendship/relationship with the white dragon as they protect Camelot from evil.
    Thanks for listening!

    are you jocking, it has to be season 6 of merlin, i love it and everyone does. why do you have to cancel it? why does bbc cancel the shows that everyone adores?. i love merlin and i really want season 6. just because the king is dead does not mean that there will be no season 6 because Arthur is the once and future king which means that the actors could set it as camolot is in danger and needs Arthur which means he will be alive to save comolat. also i thought merlin is the gretest sourcera to walk on earth which means he could do something to make arthur rise angain or give his life up to him even through it isnt really the way i want to be. i want merlin season 6 pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I read online that the Production Director of Merlin in France Claude Albouze has said, “There will certainly be a S6 of Merlin, it’s just a matter of negotiations because the first contract was signed for a period of five years and has to be renewed, he assures that both BBC and Shine absolutely want a S6 of Merlin, they want it desperately, they both want to continue the adventure”. Lets hope this is true.

    No. I must of dreamt that season 6 got cancelled. Seriously. Merlin must fall in love with a magical sugar fairy who decides that she must resurrect Arthur from the dead along with sir Gwaine for merlin because they are in love. No. Season 6 didn’t get cancelled.

    I have seen every episode of Merlin ever and I was supa excited for the magic reveal and BBC gives me this! Arthur Gwaine Morgana Modread?! They just killed off half of the main characters! Merlin Gwen Gaius Percival and Leon. Are left. I’m not saying the ending was bad, because it wasn’t. It Was Actually Really Good! It was just so unexpected especially because of the hope of season 6. Please BBC! Make Season Six! I need it!
    Stay Strong Merlin Fans!

    Merlin is a very interesting movie, but majority of de fans weren’t happy with de way it ended, at least gwen should have been pregnant in order to give camelot an heir, or mayb arthur shouldn’t have died

    The whole series leading up to the end was for Albien to be reunited, and magic allowed across the lands. The whole point of Merlin’s destiny was to save and protect Arthur so all of this could come about. How can you end the series with none of that happening, and Arthur dying anyway? It was Merlins destiny to prevent that very fatal blow from Mordrid during the last battle, but did not prevent only to find that it was Arthur’s destiny to in fact die, and be resurrected later. There HAS to be more than 5 seasons. The story was not finished and there is so much left to tell still! Merlin is still living, so his destiny has not yet been finished. MORE MERLIN PLEASE! It was a very captivating series.

    Pls to whom it concerns, a trilling film like merlin can’t just end this way, pls there is need we continue. We need to watch how fight went, and what happened to the dragon. Pls there are more to be acted upon. It can’t just end this way. Is one of the best selling movie here in west Africa. I can still help with some insight or little minor role just to make sure that the job continues. +2348064032622

    This is a show for all generations, and has been amazing. Our family have watched every episode from the first to the last and miss it terribly. Our 2 sons have grown up with it and Lord of the Rings etc don’t come close to the level of enjoyment they both get from Merlin. As others have said, its one of the few good clean dramas the whole family can watch. I just hope the rumours (from the French director) and the wishes of Merlin’s worldwide fanbase will be answered and Arthur will rise again for S6 or a series of films, or both!!!

We gotta get Merlin back and get the type of ending we thought we were gonna get during the 5 years we spent watching and loving this show. They went there own way with this show for 4 years why not do so at the end as well? I finally found a group of people wanting the same thing, another series. They are own facebook and now have step it up a notch and have there own website now. the facebook page is merlin2return. If you SERIOUSLY want more Merlin that’s where you need to be.

    The entire story of young Merlin and young Prince (King) Arthur of Camelot was so well written. Such a great family oriented tv show. I enjoyed everything about this series-love, drama, comedy, & action-whats not to like? One thing though, that I personally felt that the creators of the series did was rush the ending to the series; I hope you readers that read my comment see where Im coming from-point im making is throughout the series, Morgana was in constant search for Emrys and Emry’s kept deceiving her with clever deceptive tactics. As the stories kept unfolding, the stories to me always made me believe that at some point towards the end, there would be a big massive epic battle of sorcery between Morgana and Emrys, but the final 2 episodes seemed rushed-as a result; Morgan has Arthur in her clutches for the kill, turns around to an awaiting Merlin and X-Calibur and he winds up stabbing her and killing her, The End? Really? See, the end of the series left me with an unfathable taste in my mouth feeling that this could not have been the ending but turns out it was. I really did want to see Arthur prosper and rule the great land of Camelot with Gwenavere…..”And they lived happily ever after; The End” …..Sadly, that really wasn’t the end here for Arthur dies at the end; really? WOW. I wish the creators had more time or another season. I know they wanted only 5 seasons and got the 5 they wanted but honestly, there could of been more adventures to the series. I don’t knon-maybe it’s just me feeling this way. Oh well. LOL.

    I cant believe Merlin ended this way. They were suppose to bring up the perfect kingdom. There is still so much to do with the series. I watched all 5 Season in about 2 months, I’m a late inducty but still passionate about the series. BBC did a really stupid move ending the series. Me, my wife, and are families have come to love this series. The dragon said “when Albions need is greatest, Arthur would rise again”. There should be a season 6!! Learn how to manage your shows BBC!

    Merlin is the best show ever. I was in tears when I realized that Diamond of The Day part 2 was the last episode. I was so saddened by the news that season 5 was the last. I’ve had nightmares having to deal with this news and even now I search the net for a glimmer of hope that there will be a season 6. Please please please please, whatever it takes, there must be a season 6. I’m begging you, I won’t be able to rest well if there is not another season. I am not the only one who wishes for a renewal of contract, there are many like me who feel the pain of not having Merlin in our lives. WE NEED THIS SHOW!!! Thanks

    Please bring back Merlin for a 6th season. It shouldn’t be a dream. Perhaps after a short journey though time, not that time matters. Gwen gives her live fighting a new darkness. Before her tragic end she hides her child (Arther) in the forest. Who is found by a farmer (the land). Later found by Merin, who is told by Gwen of her son. Perhaps a second child a twin. Named Mamm. Mwahahah

    Merlin was the only show on tv that my 2 daughters could agree on. we did not miss an episode. I am truly saddened that this is the end of an epic series. I have a few opinions as others do. I am upset that all of 5 seasons led up to arthur finding out about merlins magic. Then all of a sudden OVER! How is life in Camelot afterwards?? Why cant we have at least one season on that? I really loved the series but it was a great disappointment at the end. Four yrs I have waited for the big reveal and fore ever gone……
