Remember to call & email every day (contact details at the end of this post)

Captain Excalibur tells us that some of the main cast are watching what we, the fans, are doing. Don’t you think it’s time we unite and show our support? Here’s an action for us all to do together while we continue calling and e-mailing Alex Mahon, CEO of ShineTV: 

You can either copy/paste this example e-mail or take the steps I will show you below to write your own letter to Alex Mahon: 

Subject: “FAO Alex Mahon: Merlin Fans Unite” 

Dear Alex Mahon, 

I believe that Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Katie Mcgrath, Angel Coulby, and the other cast members want to reprise their roles as Merlin, Arthur, Morgana, and Gwen. If the passion can be revived, they will be more than happy to return. 

I am a fan and I am the passion, creativity, and enthusiasm. I am the reason why it came back, series after series, and I am the reason why it will come back again. 

I am not, however, the very first fan of the show. The very first fans were the cast and I will prove that to you by sharing with you these links. 

In this video, Colin tells the interviewer how much he loves working on Merlin. He’s very enthusiastic about the possibility of more story lines after Season 5.

It was 8 months ago that I began this campaign

It was 243 days ago that I began creating this family

I was alone when on 29th December 2012 I decided to put my vision and my belief into action

I never imagined that we would reach this stage where I would be supported and joined by over 11,300 friends from all around the world

I created this global campaign to save a show - to correct the terrible way it was ended - on a low

I soon realised that I was responsible for the dreams and hopes of many and i promised myself that I wouldnt let any of you down

I created this campaign for a TV Show but it has become much more than this now - this campaign has brought out the best in us all

I have managed to unite you all from all around the world as 1 family - 1 unite of humanity

We are lucky because it is our variety that makes us all special and beautiful and if we choose to live in peace together and embrace our differences but focus on what makes us the same - focus on what similarities we do share then we really can make this world a peaceful green planet

I brought you here to work together - to cast away your differences and focus on equality -respect - loyalty - courage and unity

We really CAN save a TV SHOW such as merlin but lets continue to do it with honour and respect

courtsorcerer asked: But it wasn't only Bradley who turned down a sixth season. I forget where I saw it but I distinctly remember reading an article where it mentioned that some of the other actors turned down a sixth season as well because they wanted to try new things after all the years on Merlin. So I'm not sure how another season would even work if several of the actors didnt want one?

Hi

 Publically the actors have to say and go with what works best for their contract and loyalty to their previous employers however several of the actors have said they would love to return to merlin and quite vocally. The actors have also told members of the campaign that have met them at various fan events that they have no control over this and that they simply act a script given to them, implying and meaning that if they can return they would want to.
Hope this answers your question, thank you.
