"Merlin" (TV show) on Syfy updates the story of the infamous sorcerer of Arthurian legend for a new audience. The mythical kingdom of Camelot, in a time before history began, is a fantastical realm of legendary beasts and mysterious people, a dangerous world where magic has been banned by the ruthless tyrant, Uther Pendragon.

When Merlin, a young man gifted with extraordinary magical powers, arrives in the kingdom, he quickly makes enemies including the heir to Uther's crown, the headstrong Prince Arthur. But guided by Uther's wise physician Gaius, Merlin is soon using his talents not just to survive but also to unlock Camelot's mystical secrets. As he does so, he discovers that his destiny and that of the kingdom's young leader in waiting, Arthur, are inextricably linked.
