The BBC has officially announced that the current series of Merlin will be the last.

The fantasy drama will bow out with ?a spectacular conclusion? this Christmas, the BBC has confirmed in a statement released at midnight. The special two-part finale will see Merlin?s re-telling of the Arthurian legend reach ?its natural and dramatic end?.

Co-creators and Executive Producers, Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy commented: ?This is the series where the storylines truly reach their apex. We always felt the story of the legend was best told across five series, leading to a spectacular finale that draws on the best known elements of this much-loved story and brings to a conclusion the battle for Camelot. We?d like to thank the amazing cast and crew for their professionalism and dedication, the BBC, FME and all of our partners globally for their incredible support and encouragement across the last five series. But chiefly, our thanks go to Merlin?s remarkable and loyal audience around the world for their enthusiasm for the characters and Camelot universe.?

BBC One Controller Danny Cohen added: ?Merlin?s mix of magic, adventure and humour quickly became a hit with BBC One audiences and has continued to thrill families over the last five years on Saturday nights. I admire the creators? decision to end Merlin on a high, but also know that we will miss it in the BBC One schedule. On behalf of BBC One I would like to thank Shine and all those involved in the making of the show both on and off screen. I hope fans will tune in over the coming weeks to see the spectacularly dramatic final episodes, and we have ambitious plans for new drama in the Saturday evening slot in 2013.?

Goddamit, I love this show.

I was hoping for him to reveal his magic to Arthur now it looks like its not even gonna happen this season. They've squandered this season on the god awful Morgana crap, sick of how many times shes been able to come back from certain doom.

If they don't do it in the xmas special I'm going to rage hard.

Well it was Game of Thrones or Merlin. Let's just say I don't care much for BBC anymore.

it was actually due to you talking about it that i started watching it. and I have loved the show. This season is still good just stranger than the rest. Now we just have to wait a year and we can start watching Sherlock again.

I think they ended it quite well.

I don't know if I just don't remember the stories well or what but it surprised me.

I am glad that they didn't drag it on forever...it did seem like a good time to end it
