Merlin: Possible Season Six, Movie Trilogy

Merlin on Syfy sixth seasonAt Comic-Con in San Diego, Merlin co-creator and executive producer Johnny Capps shared that a trilogy of movies and a sixth season may be made.

He said, “We’re hopefully going to do a trilogy — three movies. We will focus on them when we finish season five.”

Capps continued, “One idea we’ve been playing around with is to reboot the whole series. We would go back in time and start the story again and show different parts that you didn’t see in the series. The other idea is to do a continuation, but we haven’t decided that yet.”

He also noted that the possibility of a sixth season is still being discussed with the BBC.

BBC has ordered a fifth season of Merlin and those 13 episodes are still being produced. Syfy officially picked up season five and finished airing season four at the end of March.

What do you think? Are you hoping for a sixth season of Merlin? What do you think about the movies idea?

    My husband and I are elderly and have watched Merlin erver since Dish Network started carrying it. It is one series we both wouldn’t miss.
    I cried when they showed the series finale on 053113 – we really need more Merlin series to carry on with Merlin and King Arthur. All kinds of adventures could be created now that King Arthur knows Merlin is a kind and good Sorcerer. Adventures could include ones that are even with just Merlin outside of Camelot. Others could be created with Merlin and King Arthur where Merlin helps King Arthur with Camelot.
    PLEASE BRING BACK THE MERLIN TV SERIES – I love Colin Morgan’s acting!!!
    Thank you for letting me send this comment!

      I hope the show continues, I just love the show. I also hope that Arthur returns and didn’t really die.

        King Arthur just has to return alive. Gais mentioned something about “when King Arthur returns” in the finale. So, I guess, “Merlin is the greatest Socerer to ever walk the Earth” and still looks over at the Isle that he couldn’t get King Arthur to before his death. This could be in the NEW series where King Arthur DID make it on the boat floating to the Isle and gets brought back to life by the Ancients. I just love this show too!!!

    Wonderful series for children and adults. I enjoyed a series that teaches resonsibility, courage, and morals that we can live by. l would hope that the producers would see this, and bring a new series to the audience in 2014. Thanks to the BBC for allowing this series to be show in the U.S.

    Yes there needs to be a continuation. The series ended with Merlin either in disguise as his olde self or in actuality that she. The viewer can see as the eighteen wheeler drives by that the season ended in modern times. How can you not continue on from that? We never know what came of Camelot. They should continue the series with the same actors and all! I was screaming at my tv for minutes because of how it ended!

    Would like for series to continue. Such a great show, look forward to watching it every week. I don’t want to see a ending (bad or good), I want more episodes. Arthur needs to come back to life.

    I would love another season of Merlin and can only hope. The previous and current seasons have been a lot of fun for me. Yes, there is “violence” only so far as expected for the times but, in general, my family has been able to enjoy this series not only because of its fun but because it has been so clean in comparison to so much of what is available otherwise. I will thank those who have created this and just hope for some more to come.
    LOVED IT! Thank You

    My wife and I have watched merlin since the start and the end of season just made us sick. There has to be an ending better than it was. Give us a happier ending than it was because this tv series is based upon happier endings. Everytime, at the end of about three shows everything became right with the kingdom. Make this right with the kingdom. Thanks
