Merlin to end after fifth season

The BBC has announced that Merlin will end after its fifth season. Co-creators ad executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy said in a statement: “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.”

Hour-long HIMYM planned

An hour-long holiday special of How I Met Your Mother has been announced by co-creator Craig Thomas. Thomas tweeted: “Not sure this is public knowledge yet, but December 17, #himym is doing its first ever HOUR-LONG holiday ep. Some really big crap happens!”
