Merlin Series 5: A Couple Of Spoilers From Comic-Con Panel

The Merlin panel at San Diego Comi-Con revealed a few spoilers for series 5 .

According to producer Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps, Merlin's temptation to use darker magic will be a theme of series five.

Merlin will have a telepathic connection with Mordred, who knows his secret – this will be another important aspect of the new series.

But while Merlin seems to be doing a Harry Potter and becoming darker and grittier with each series, even a post 8pm timeslot wouldn’t see the show change too much, says Murphy: “Well, we won't do rape or incest...!”

Katie McGrath added: "I want Morgana to feel guilt for what she's done...I want her to be redeemed!”
