    Merlin airs on SyFy first in the US, at least it has the last 3 seasons (2-4) BBC America only starting showing the first four seasons this past May, 2012.

    For the SyFy network Merlin starts generally in the early part of the year, so January, 2013 is probably when Series 5 will air in the US. (Canada's SPACE channel usually shows Merlin around the same time.) Until we hear from each station that shows Merlin in it's home country, we don't know exact airing dates until they are announced.

    Series 5 will premiere on Syfy on January 4th, 2013 Source.

    And Syfy is running a series 4 marathon on September 13th starting at 8am. More details here.

    This is what we know, to the best of my knowledge dates haven't been confirmed yet.

    When will series 5 air?
    -The BBC has announced that they will only air 6 new episodes of Doctor Who during 2012 (5 episodes from series 7 + a Christmas Specia) and then 8 further ones during 2013 Source. The Doctor Who premiere will take place on September 1st Source with its 5th episode airing on September 29th before it goes on break.

    -If Merlin is to fit its 13 episodes in the BBC's autumn schedule it should premiere on September 29th and finish on December 22nd, airing on the same night as Doctor Who as they did last year

    -TPTB seem to believe that'd be the case as stated at the beginning of the 2nd scan here, here, here and here.

    -According to CultFix Merlin series 5 will air on September 29th Source. There is no official confirmation on the matter yet though.

    The speculated September 29th start on the BBC (UK) is not a confirmed broadcast date. The BBC (UK) always shows Merlin weeks (even months) earlier than other countries in the world, it is not a simultaneous broadcast with any of the other countries.


    We are still waiting for the official announcement from the BBC, which should be either this week or next week.


    If you are asking what channel Series 5 will premiere on in the U.S., the answer to that is The SyFy Channel. And as BM mentioned in post #482 of this Q&A thread, the SyFychannel(US) has confirmed that they will broadcast Series 5 on January 4, 2013.

    The BBC has released its week 39 (Sep 29 - Oct 05) listing and Merlin is not on it. It might be added later on though.

    Another possibility is that it might premiere on Oct 6th like Merlin’s Keep informed yesterday in their series 5 picture update. In that case, it will run along until after Christmas unless a double parter (the finale?) airs on the same night.

    Still more speculation than anything until any official statement is released.

    According to this website:http://epguides.com/Merlin/, Merlin will premier in the UK on October 6th. But I'm not sure how reliable this site is...

    I can't tell for sure because the site has been having a lot of issues for the past few days so it could very well be another one of them.

    Just in case, you can go to "preferences" on the top right corner of the side, and choose "boards". The where it says "Use WYSIWYG Editor" you need to indicate "yes". That sometimes does the trick.

    Sorry but I can't help any further.
