The UK's family-friendly fantasy drama "Merlin," about the legendary wizard and a young King Arthur, will end after the fifth season. BBC One has confirmed that Series 5 will bring the show to a "natural and dramatic end" with a two-part finale set to air in the UK at Christmas.
For American viewers, the fifth season premieres Friday, Jan. 4 at 10 p.m. Est on SyFy. According to a press release, the decision to conclude the series was made by co-creators and executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, not by the network.
In a statement, Capps and Murphy write, "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."
