U.S. TELEVISION PREMIERE OF MERLIN SECOND SEASON ON SYFY FRIDAY, APRIL 2, AT 10PM (ET/PT)

Season One Merlin Marathon Airs on Syfy Sunday, March 28, from 10AM-11PM (ET/PT)

New York, NY - March 9, 2010 - The second season of the critically acclaimed series Merlin makes its United States television premiere on Syfy Friday, April 2, at 10PM (ET/PT), following the spring season premiere of Stargate Universe at 9PM (ET/PT).

To give viewers a chance to catch up before the new season two launch, Syfy will showcase all 13 hours of Merlin's first season in a full day marathon Sunday, March 28, from 10AM-11PM (ET/PT).

An imaginative new twist on a timeless legend, Merlin is set in the mythical city of Camelot, before history began. It's a fantastical realm of legendary beasts and mysterious peoples, and a dangerous world where magic has been banned by the ruthless tyrant, Uther Pendragon.

Merlin stars Colin Morgan as Merlin, Bradley James as Prince Arthur, Anthony Head as King Uther, Richard Wilson as Gaius, Katie McGrath as Morgana and Angel Coulby as Gwen.

In the season two premiere episode, new servant Cedric (Mackenzie Crook, The Office) threatens Merlin's position as Arthur's right-hand-man, turning the Prince against his loyal friend. Merlin is convinced the slippery newcomer is up to something and he's right - Cedric is a con man and a thief who's after a magnificent jewel recently unearthed in a tomb far beneath Camelot. Little does Cedric realize that his precious prize is more dangerous than he could possibly imagine.

Merlin is executive produced by Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps for Shine Television.

In February, Syfy acquired the basic cable rights from FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) for all 26 episodes of Merlin. Season One of Merlin aired on NBC (Summer 2009). Seasons one and two aired on BBC One in the UK (2008-09). BBC has commissioned a third season, which will air in the UK in September 2010.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 96 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy.
