Merlin’s fate on the line as series wraps up
fifth and final series of Merlin draws to a close this weekend. How will fans of the reimagined adventures of the magician Merlin and his longtime friend Arthur end? Will Bradley James’s Arthur, the man Merlin made king, learn his friend has been conjuring up the powers of good and evil since the pair were children? And will Colin Morgan’s Merlin meet his fate, as he does in the classics, with imprisonment in the Crystal Cave? Neither Morgan (pictured) nor James have new projects to go to unlike some of the Knights of the Round Table including Tom Hopper, who will play Billy Bones in a new series, Black Sails, which reimagines Captain Flint and his pirates, 20 years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island. Black Sails is filming in South Africa and is one of two pirate drama in production.
