Merlin’s Future in Doubt?
Reportedly, the BBC have decided not to renew Merlin, with the upcoming fifth series to be the last.
Merlin was originally intended to run for five series, but in recent months the creators have said a sixth series was under discussion.
Recent signs are not looking good now, however.
Actor Graham Burton wrote on Twitter: “Sad to hear that BBC have cancelled Merlin. Lots of my friends got lots of work on it. And a cracking costume family drama for a Sat night.”
The BBC or Shine have yet to comment, so treat this as a rumour for now.
