News: Merlin Series 5 Airing Date

“The magic continues for a fifth time…”

Airing on: BBC

Genre: Adventure, Family, Action, Fantasy, Drama, Age: All ages

Released: 29th September 2012

Good news for fans of Merlin, the fifth series will begin airing on the BBC on 29th September. Colin Morgan and Bradley James will return as the stars of the cast. The series will run for a total of 13 episodes.

Warning! May contain spoilers!




I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen to Arthur and Merlin, since the last season was so dramatic and pivotal. There were many episodes that broke away from the “reset button”, including Arthur’s father dying and Morgana revealing her dark side.

In a previous interview, the writers stated that these new seasons (series 4 onwards) would have less of Arthur falling unconscious and people seeing more of Merlin’s powers. So far, Merlin has still been ducking and hiding. It would be good to have a exposure of Merlin’s powers well before the final battle.

You can see more information at the Merlin Wiki website, but it contains spoilers for this and previous seasons.
