At 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?
