Merlin‘s Bradley James has confirmed that he wont appear in the potential Arthur spinoff series.
“It was something discussed, but I think it’s time for me to hang up the chain mail, to be honest with you, and pass the mantle on to the next person who shall take on the throne of Arthur Pendragon. The post-”Merlin” era is an exciting time to look forward to…. Variety is the spice of life. That’s the fantastic thing about acting is all the different challenges it can provide you with. To limit yourself just to one would be foolish, therefore I’m looking forward to different things that come my way.”
The fifth and final season of Merlin gets underway in the US on Friday, January 4 on Syfy.
