Merlin S05E07 - 'A Lesson In Vengeance': Merlin (COLIN MORGAN), Gaius (RICHARD WILSON )

Digital Spy and Merlin – Official Facebook have unfortunately confirmed that Season 5 will be the last series.

“Co-creators and executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy confirmed in a statement that the fifth series of the show would be its last, saying: “This is the series where the storylines truly reach their apex. ”

They are extremely grateful to the loyal and fun audience over the world which have followed the hit series over the past 5 years but decided to end the series on a high.
