Merlin To End After Five Series
It was suspected for a while but on Sunday, it was finally confirmed that after five series, BBC1 fantasy drama, Merlin would finish it's run for good with it's fifth series being it's final one.According to both the BBC and the cast members themselves, it does seem that the show has been working towards it's natural conclusion as ratings for the series continue to be at all time high for the show. The series will end on a two part finale that will air during the Christmas period.
I have to admit I have mixed feelings on the show ending. On one hand, five series is a good run for the show and it's best to end it on a high but on the other hand, the show has yet to finally out Merlin's magic good and proper and it'll seem like it might be rushed during the final four episodes of the show. Either way, at least it will end on an interesting note.
