Found out through the official twitter account – the BBC has announced that Merlin will not return for a sixth series, with the fifth series currently airing in the U.K. and starting in the U.S. in January.

Star Colin Morgan said, “I know this is the end, and I know this is goodbye, but thank you for being there on the journey with us.” Co-star Katie McGrath added, “It’s completely the right time to draw our telling of the story to a close.”

The BBC Media Centre also has a release, with an interview with Colin Morgan talking about the final series.

Update: Word is that Shine TV and FreemantleMedia Enterprises are in the early stages of exploring spin-offs within the universe established by Merlin, but creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy have announced they are departing Shine TV to form their own company.
