MERLIN Season 4 Announced

Merlin (BBC One) Season 3

From the excellent news files, it has been announced that there will be a fourth season of the family fantasy drama MERLIN on BBC One. Ten new forty-five minute episodes have been commissioned.

Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning, said, “Merlin continues to perform outstandingly well against X Factor and offers audiences an alternative treat on Saturday nights. I’m pleased to confirm that the magical world of Camelot will be returning next year for a fourth series of this fresh and modern retelling of a classic British legend.”

Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, executive producers for Shine TV, said, “We are both delighted with the continuing success of Merlin, and relish the chance to take the series to the next level with the long-awaited arrival of the Knights of the Round Table.”

Season 3 of Merlin is currently airing with the finale scheduled to air on BBC One December 4. Syfy has already announced it will air those episodes here in the United States beginning in early 2011 and we can only hope they will pick up season four as well.

Is everyone else excited to know there will be more Merlin, this time with the Knights of the Round Table?

    I hope I have this correct. Merlin Season 4 will air in the UK this coming autumn, and it will air in the US in Spring 2012??? It seems Season 3 was aired like that also.

    Merlin is an enjoyable show. This is great news that we will experience a new “series” or season as we call it in the states. Legend of the Seeker, was another awesome fantasy genre show, that deserved another season, but ended prematurely. I am glad to see Merlin is going the distance. Looking forward to seeing the knights of the round table. Sounds like the best is yet to come!

  • Matthew

    OH YEAH I AM VERY VERY EXCITED!!! I was unhappy when it was said that season 3 would be the last season and when I found out they are going to be a season 4 I love this show and I hope it goes for more seasons but I guess we will take it season by season. Thank you BBC for approving another season.

    I hope syfy picks it up again, I am so hooked!

  • prettyprincess14

    awesome i thought before they said that that there was going to be a season four because the story is not complete arthur is not king, magic has not yet returned to camelot and other parts like what happens to morganna.

    so i am really excited that there is going to be a season 4 because merlin is awesome!

    but there’s one little problem they said that merlin season four is going to be aired next yaer in 2012
    which is a bummer but if any one finds out that it is online or on youtube can you email me at

    so very glad to hear this. This has to be one of the first TV drama series I’m obsessed with. Love the characters, the friendships, the plots, and all the magical lore thrown in. Keep going strong, BBC Merlin. =)

    I like this series so it’s all well and good to know that it season four is coming but what I’d really like to know is WHEN??????

  • diane

    this series has to be one of the best i’ve ever seen for excellent casting, Sets, plots, atmosphere, etc.  I refuse to go anywhere whenever an episode of this is playing, even though I tape it for future viewing. I feel like i know these characters as they have tremendous depth–especially Merlin & Gwaine. Thanks writers for the humerous dialogue, actually thanks for all of the dialogue as it seems so real and believable. And filmed in a real castle–amazing!!

  • Jasonpyktel

    Omg I am so excited totally looking forward to the new season 4 coming totally freaking awesome love the series.

  • Baboo

    Aww ! But when !? I am really looking forward to see this series again. It’s great and I like all characters very much (maybe except Uther, argh, I really hate ‘im, like the actor though XD )

  • Jeff_spaid

    Thank God! I am so tired of reality t.v. This show is a very refreshing mix of drama, lite comedy and a super cast that make you want to like them…the goodies and the badies. I hope there will be  a season 5 as well.
