BBC Merlin Season Two Confirmed!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Anthony Head, actor for king Uther Pendragon in BBC’s 2008 drama Merlin, confirmed last night in an interview that there will indeed be a season two to the much-beloved series.

The highlight:

Q: What about Merlin? What’s going to happen this Saturday night?

ASH: Merlin is definitely coming back, it’s getting darker, the last episode is really deep, I think the dragon will surprise people, you know, there are all sorts of little tricks and treats in the last one, and not everything is what you think, and relationships have been developing.

Merlin stars Colin Morgan as the titular character while Bradley James takes on the role of Prince Arthur. The latest episode of the series, To Kill the King, gathered 5.74 million viewers on the night it broadcasted. Despite fears from fans and networks that its subtext would prove too much, this show does enjoy a large following with so-called family audience.

There may not be enough capslocking for my fangirly joy. 😀

ETA 09/04/2009: As of now, unofficial sources indicate the airing date to be the 19th of September on BBC.

    I just watched it, and it was mind-blowing!!!!
    It was totally predictable until Merlin went to see the dragon for his mom. After that it was OMG after OMG… I can’t wait for the next season.

    ^ Filming is scheduled to begin in February, so with any luck we will see the completed work in September or October of 2009.

    Morgana/Merlin Gwen/Arthur by any chance? Damn ages till new series! September October!?

  10. Sunday, January 11, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    We will have to wait till Sept./Oct. to see season 2??? Am I missing something here? Why go with season 2 at all? I mean this was an amazing show and to keep the viewers’ interested they should have completed the filming part already.

    Well it was nice while it lasted.

    Waiting so long to air season two will definitely take some of the heat off, but I’m still going to be drooling with anticipation. I hope they don’t make us wait that long, however.

    Definitely a good series – but I’m surprised by the amount of surprise surrounding the dragon – its true intentions seem to have been hinted at several times throughout the episodes. For me the scene was more of a confirmation of suspicion than a shock.

    Very good news I love the series…sadly BBC blocks me from watching it since I am in the states but I find other means to watch it.

    Great series and I hope they keep making it better instead of riding it into the ground like some series.

  15. Monday, February 2, 2009 at 5:47 am

    Im a fan from across the ocean, The merlin serie is awsome i watched the last episode with great joy, further more i knew the dragons intentions this cause he said (only When arthur is king i will be released) he said this maybe 5 times so his intentions where always plain on the table none the less it is an amazing serie cant wait for season 2.

    Kind regards to the whole crew


    May magic surround each and every one with joy and laughter may it be embraced by the earth that surrounds it.

    Considering it was only produced to fill air time while Doctor Who was being filmed, It really is a brilliant show, I’m glad there making a season 2, The cast couldn’t get any better, At least there not cutting the legs from underneath it, like certain brilliant shows…

    It took a few episodes for me to buy into the whole reimagining thing, but after that I just sat back and enjoyed. I am looking forward to season 2.

    Your recaps crack me up. Nicely done with all the pics. Where do you get the time?

    I posted a take on season 1 as a whole if you want to check it out.

    one question i would love answered by someone please: why doesn’t the dragon just melt the chain around his leg? please let me know if im missing something here.

    • sevenses
      Tuesday, June 2, 2009 at 9:08 pm

      I think the dragon’s chains are fire/magic-proof. Either that or he has some Ultimate Plan going on.

  42. Saleem
    Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 9:40 pm
