The hit BBC show Merlin is aired in over 180 countries and plays here in the U.S. on the Syfy channel.

The cast is currently filming season four in Wales and France, but it was just announced at the Merlin panel at the San Diego Comic-Con that it's already been picked up for season five!

I was honored to be the moderator for the panel and I got a chance to chat with creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy backstage before the festivities. Check out what they had to say in our video interview.

Merlin continues to inspire devotion from television audiences worldwide. So much so that the show has been renewed for a fifth season before the fourth has even aired!

I was lucky enough to chat with the creators about their original plan for the series, how much darker the show will be this time around and what's in store for our favorite characters. Check out what they had to say!
