Cult Fix has it on good authority that Merlin will return to British TV screens late September on BBC1.
The fifth series of the show is currently planned to air on Saturday 29 September, a week after Doctor Who concludes the first batch of episodes from its seventh series.
Once again there will be 13 new Merlin episodes in the run and it is expected to air uninterrupted, finishing shortly before Christmas.
Note, BBC broadcast dates are obviously still subject to change up until around two weeks before broadcast.

Added even more images thanks to Yavanna, Carole and BlogSorciere. They’re spoilers as usual, and we can also have a glimpse of the Gwen’s night gown! Only 3 days left before the end of the first block of filming in Pierrefonds. The second one will be in September. Let’s hope to have some news and the first promo images during the summer!
