British fantasy series Merlin has won a fourth season from the BBC.
A new 10 part series will start filming in March 2011.
In the UK Merlin airs as family-friendly Saturday night viewing, pulling over six million viewers.
Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning, says: “Merlin continues to perform outstandingly well against X Factor and offers audiences an alternative treat on Saturday nights. I’m pleased to confirm that the magical world of Camelot will be returning next year for a fourth series of this fresh and modern retelling of a classic British legend.”
Executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy said, “We are both delighted with the continuing success of Merlin, and relish the chance to take the series to the next level with the long-awaited arrival of the Knights of the Round Table.”
TEN is expected to air the third season in 2011.
