New Merlin Series 5 Guest Stars Confirmed

Merlin‘s fifth series is months away but if you’re one of the many fans waiting to hear some behind the scenes news, our friends at Digital Spy may have just the thing you’re looking for. They’ve confirmed 3 guest stars — one new, two returning…who could they be? Click behind the cut for details!

Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham will appear along with two other characters from last series:  “We can confirm that… Liam Cunningham is going to appear in series five, along with returning guest stars Lindsay Duncan (Queen Annis) and Janet Montgomery (Princess Mithian),” the BBC said. Below you can find two behind-the-scenes photos of Cunningham and series lead Colin Morgan:

It’s also been stated that the show could get another series but it all depends on how popular it is. Given how Merlin’s audience has grown since 2008, I’d bet on a sixth series but only if leads Colin Morgan and Bradley James want to continue. Who knows what creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy have in store for their characters this year or what other characters might reappear.
