An all new season of Merlin airs tomorrow on Syfy along with an all day marathon leading up to the 5th and final season. Many fans were shocked and upset to hear that Merlins 5th season would be its last. At Comic Con, we interviewed the producer who shared his excitement over discussions with BBC on season 6 and 3 movies. No word has been said on whether the movies are still on the table but the new and last season of the show is by far one of the best.
Last season, Morgana went full on evil, doing her best to seek revenge against Uther and take her “rightful” place on the throne. After Morgana’s betrayal left Uther broken, Arthur took over Uther’s duties with the assistance of his beloved uncle, Lord Agravaine. Unbeknownst to him, Agravaine allied with Morgana and was working diligently for his own revenge against Uther and to help Morgana take the throne. After successfully killing Uther and numerous failed attempts to kill the newly crowned King Arthur, Morgana and Lord Agravaine manage to take over Camelot while the knights, King Arthur and Merlin fled the kingdom. With Arthur’s belief in himself broken as they run from Agravaine, Merlin works to restore his faith and convince him to return to Camelot.
Season 5 picks up three years after the events of last season. King Arthur and Queen Guinevere have brought peace and harmony to the kingdom and continue to work to further their endeavors of peace through their alliances. The knights of the round table have taken their place at Arthur’s side and Merlin continues to aide Arthur in meeting his destiny as the Once and Future King, but “even as Camelot flowers, the seeds of its destruction are being sown” as Morgana returns to seek revenge against Arthur and take her place as Queen of Camelot.
Below we have 3 previews to share with you for the new season. Enjoy and be sure to tune in tomorrow to Syfys all day marathon and the premiere of season 5.
