We could be in denial forever, but that won’t fix a thing. After five glorious seasons, BBC’s Merlin is closing its run with an epic battle for the fate of Arthur and Camelot.
This is just unacceptable — we’re not ready!
So the epic and wonderful BBC One show Merlin is coming to an end after five incredible seasons… But the good news is that spinoffs are not out of the question!
The fantasy show loosely based on the Arthurian legends, starring Colin Morgan, Bradley James and Katie McGrath, will conclude this Christmas with a crowning episode, battling for the fate of Camelot.
“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,” the show’s creators, Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, stated.
To clarify, this show is too awesome to be cancelled. It was a creative decision by the makers of the show to end it with a natural climax. But according to reports, Shine Group and FremantleMedia Enterprises (which take care of the show overseas) are in talks to develop several spinoffs set in the world created by Merlin. How great is that?
What do you think of Merlin concluding? What’s the general sentiment toward a spinoff?
