An imaginative new twist on a timeless legend, Merlin is set in the mythical city of Camelot, before history began. It's a fantastical realm of legendary beasts and mysterious peoples, and a dangerous world where magic has been banned by the ruthless tyrant, Uther Pendragon. In the season two premiere episode, new servant Cedric (Mackenzie Crook, The Office, Demons) threatens Merlin's position as Arthur's righthand man, turning the Prince against his loyal friend. Merlin is convinced the slippery newcomer is up to something and he's right - Cedric is a con man and a thief who's after a magnificent jewel recently unearthed in a tomb far beneath Camelot. Little does Cedric realize that his precious prize is more dangerous than he could possibly imagine.
Merlin stars Colin Morgan as Merlin, Bradley James as Prince Arthur, Anthony Head as King Uther, Richard Wilson as Gaius, Katie McGrath as Morgana and Angel Coulby as Gwen. Series is executive produced by Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps for Shine Television.
