Series 5 will be the fifth series of the highly popular drama show, Merlin. It has been officially commissioned by the BBC, due to popularity and anticipation. This was confirmed 24 July 2011 by Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps. Filming will begin March 2012 in Cardiff, Wales and Pierrefonds, France. 13 episodes have been ordered.
However, at this stage it's not clear when the 5th series will be shown, although some sources state that it will be shown in September 2012 This would mean that it will be shown at the same time as Dotor Who's 7th series.
