'Merlin': See the costumes of Series 5 -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Arthur And Guinevere
Shine Ltd. & FremantleMedia Enterprises

The fifth season (ahem, series) of the medieval wizarding drama Merlin kicks off in the U.K. on Oct. 6 on BBC One, and if you’re a loyal knight like me, you’re counting down the hours — or months if you’re here in the States (where it will later air on Syfy) — until you can gallop back into Camelot. After all, the fourth season (sorry Brits, series) finale left us with a lot to process: How would Guinevere fare as queen? Where would Morgana go after getting ousted from Camelot? And what would become of that white dragon hatchling?!

Not too much is known about the new episodes — though when I spoke to stars Colin Morgan and Katie McGrath at Comic-Con they did let spill that the series would take a three year time jump this year — and producers are staying tight-lipped about major plot details. Still, thanks to a slew of brand new images from the upcoming season, we’ve now got a sense of what our favorite characters will be wearing this year. And for Morgana and Gwen, the wardrobe changes are pretty drastic!

EW got in touch with Merlin‘s costume designer Jane Spicer, who walked us through some of the season’s new looks and a sneak peek at the round table of Camelot. Check them all out by clicking through the next few pages!
