Last night on Syfy, Americans finally got to experience the Merlin series finale. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you handle your Merlin actor withdrawals!

It’s no secret that we here at Hypable are big fans of Merlin, and were very upset about the series’ end last December.

We did our best to help send the show off with a bang, celebrating with a series of articles under the headline Month of Merlin, and doing a full series rewatch on our Talks of Camelot podcast.

But until now, we’ve been able to avoid feeling the loss of the show, because as long as it was still airing in the U.S., it wasn’t really over. Well, Merlin fans, that excuse isn’t going to work anymore.

So what’s next? For the cast and crew, it’s a lot of very exciting new projects! And we couldn’t be happier to see most of the actors and writers finding new work because it means that we still get to watch them do their craft.

Here is our guide to the cast and crew of Merlin, which will hopefully help you in the days and weeks (and let’s face it, months and years) to come.

This article was written by Hypable staff members Selina Wilken and Pamela Gocobachi.

Julian Murphy & Johnny Capps (creators)

Julian Murphy and Johnny CappsAlthough you’ll find that the season 5 finale left fans very divided, there is no question that Capps and Murphy created a wonderful series.

The pair left the Merlin production company Shine, following the end of the show, but the good news is that they’ll still be working together, as executive producers on the new BBC series Atlantis.

Set to take Merlin‘s place on Saturday nights on BBC One this fall, Atlantis follows the young boy, Jason, as he arrives in the mythical and mysterious city of Atlantis.

And, like with Merlin, we all know the story: the famous city will eventually sink into the sea. Will we see that in the show? Probably, yeah. But before that, we have Jason and his friends embarking on what are sure to be epic adventures in a modern retelling of ancient Greek myths.

We’re sure that all Merlin fans will love Atlantis, especially seeing as Capps and Murphy are involved!

Colin Morgan (Merlin)

Colin MorganOf all the former cast members, it’s safe to say Colin Morgan has been one of the most active in securing roles since the end of BBC’s hit fantasy drama.

Since wrapping on Merlin, Morgan has landed a role in BBC’s upcoming mystery drama Quirke, based off of the popular book series by Irish writer John Banville (writing under the pseudonym Benjamin Black).

Quirke, which is set in 1950s Dublin, is set to air sometime next year on the BBC; fans of Morgan can expect to see him in the third episode of the series entitled “Elegy For April” where he will play a local crime reporter who knows more about the mysterious death of a young girl than he lets on.

Fans who are lucky enough to find themselves in London sometime this summer can also catch Morgan at London’s historic Globe Theatre where Morgan is co-starring in the theatre’s stage production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Katie McGrath (Morgana)

Katie McGrath

Since finishing Merlin, McGrath fans have been able to catch the young actress in the 2012 miniseries Labyrinth, which aired in March in the U.K. and has since been released on DVD. McGrath will also appear on Dates, a Channel 4 drama which airs in June.

Finally, American audiences can look forward to seeing the newly blonde McGrath this fall on the new NBC series Dracula. Here she plays the young, vapid socialite Lucy Westenra, best friend of main female character Mina Murray (Victoria Smurfit). Dracula also stars Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as the title character, and is set in Victorian Era London.

Angel Coulby (Guinevere)

Angel Coulby

Gwen fans almost didn’t have time to miss the actress at all following the end of Merlin, as Coulby was already back on our screens in January. Starring in the period drama Dancing on the Edge, she played the jazz singer, Jessie, and we even got to hear her sing!

Coulby has kept a fairly low profile since then, but don’t worry: she has joined the cast of Sky Atlantic’s The Tunnel, a remake of Scandinavian thriller drama The Bridge set in Britain and France. The cast also includes Clémence Poésy, Stephen Dillane and Joseph Mawle.

Anthony Head (Uther)

Anthony Head

Although we won’t get the chance to see Anthony Stewart Head as the Uther-esque King Clarkson in The Selection, since The CW chose not to pick up the reworked pilot episode, there’s still ample opportunity to watch Head in something besides Buffy rewatches (which, let’s face it, we’ll be doing anyway).

Head will be taking over the role of the centaur Chiron in Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters from Pierce Brosnan, who played the character in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

In the second Percy Jackson film, Chiron will most likely only be seen at Camp Half-Blood, but we’ll take it! This kind mentor is much more Giles than Uther, and we can’t wait to see Head put his own twist on the role.

The actor has also recently wrapped up filming for two movies, titled Convenience and Flying Home, both set for release in 2013.

Eoin Macken (Gwaine)

Eoin MackenThough Macken has kept busy since the end of Merlin by working on a few of his own side projects, American fans of the show can look forward to seeing the former Knight of Camelot on their television screens this fall!

Macken will star in NBC’s new medical drama series After Hours where he will portray the role of T.C. Callahan, an ex-army man who comes to work the graveyard shift at a small hospital located in San Antonio, TX after getting discharged.

Tom Hopper (Percival)

Tom HopperTom Hopper is heading out to sea in his first post-Merlin role! The former knight will star in Starz’s upcoming eight part mini series, Black Sails, produced by Transformers director Michael Bay.

The new pirate drama will act as a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island and will follow the tale of the dangerous Captain Flint and his band of pirates.

Hopper will play a pirate named Billy Bones, first mate of The Walrus who becomes caught up in conflict between Captain Flint and his arch nemesis. Though Black Sails is currently being filmed in Cape Town, Africa, fans will unfortunately have to wait until early 2014 to catch this new series on television.

Santiago Cabrera (Lancelot)

Santiago CabreraFans of Santiago Cabrera can rest easy knowing they’ll soon be seeing him in yet another knight-like role! It was recently announced that the former Merlin actor would be starring in the upcoming BBC/BBC America co-production of The Musketeers.

Cabrera will take on the role of Aramis in the upcoming adaption of Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale set during the time of the French Revolution. The Musketeers is currently in pre-production and is set to premiere sometime next year.

Alexander Vlahos (Mordred)

Alex Vlahos

Vlahos has been staying busy since the end of Merlin. In early 2013, he starred in the excellent BBC miniseries Privates, and has since then announced two Kickstarter projects: one for a music video he will be appearing in, and one for a play titled Gardening: For the Unfulfilled and Alienated.

It was recently announced that Vlahos will be appearing as Malcolm in a stage production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which sees seasoned British actor Kenneth Branagh in the title role, and Doctor Who actress Alex Kingston as the haunting Lady Macbeth.

Finally, Vlahos has also recorded new episodes of The Confessions of Dorian Gray, the popular BBC radio production, as well as an adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Bradley James (Arthur Pendragon)

Bradley James
Since wrapping on the series, Merlin’s Bradley James has kept a fairly low profile. Fans of James, however, can catch him in the recent sports film drama Fast Girls which was released just last year.

Fast Girls follows a group of female runners who dream of going for Olympic gold. In the film, James portrays the team’s physiotherapist and the love interest of main character Shania Andrews (Lenora Crichlow).

As for what’s next for the former King of Camelot, only time will tell, but just like you, we here at Hypable are hoping to hear casting news involving Mr. James sooner rather than later!

Rupert Young (Sir Leon) and Adetomiwa Edun (Sir Elyan)

Like Bradley James, actors Rupert Young and Adetomiwa Edun (who played Sir Leon and Sir Elyan respectively) have both kept a rather low profile since completing the fifth and final season of BBC’s hit fantasy drama.

Fans of Rupert Young can look forward to seeing him guest star in an upcoming episode of the BBC/Starz production of The White Queen. The series will tell the story of women in England fighting to take the throne and rule the country.

Fans of Adetomiwa Edun can expect to see the actor make his film debut sometime next year when he will star in director Anthony Onah’s debut feature Passengers.

That should satisfy and Merlin fan’s actor withdrawals! Of course we’re still waiting to hear what Bradley James is up to, and we wish him and all the other cast and crew good luck on future projects.

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?

Uh oh — fans of Nick and Jess aren’t going to like this news! Megan Fox is returning to New Girl in season 6 for a major arc.

Last season, Megan Fox stepped in to fill in Jess’ place while Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. During that time, Fox’s character Regan grew quite close to Nick! They even ended up going to Cece and Schmidt’s wedding together and made plans for the summer. With awful timing too, since it seemed like Jess was just about ready to admit her feelings for Nick.

Now TV Line is reporting that Fox will be returning for a huge story arc in New Girl season 6. It’s believed that Nick will return home from his summer with Regan alone, but she will appear around the middle of the season. The timing of her appearance is due to Fox’s own pregnancy with her third child.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the writers will definitely be throwing some angst into the script. It always seems like either Jess or Nick is pining for the other while they’re in a relationship. Will Jess try to get over her feelings for Nick with someone else? Or will she just try to show him why they should be together? Fans will have to wait and see when the show returns!

New Girl season 6 returns to Fox on September 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET!

Are you excited to see Megan Fox return to ‘New Girl’?
