‘Merlin’ film trilogy planned, could ‘reboot whole series’

Posted Filed under

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con, co-creator and executive producer Johnny Capps said he was “in discussions with BBC about Season 6, but we’re talking about the movies”, according to AssignmentX.com.

“We’re hopefully going to do a trilogy – three movies. We will focus on them when we finish Season 5. 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 yet.”

Capps’ co-creator, Julian Murphy, had previously confirmed to CultBox that a sixth series, movie, and animated spin-off were all under consideration beyond Merlin’s originally-planned five year run.
