Bradley James has revealed that he is “looking forward to different things” and has no plans to appear in a Merlin spin-off.

The actor, who played Arthur in BBC One’s fantasy drama, told LA Times: “[A Merlin spin-off] was something discussed, but I think it’s time for me to hang up the chain mail, to be honest with you, and pass the mantle on to the next person who shall take on the throne of Arthur Pendragon.”

James added: “The post-Merlin era is an exciting time to look forward to… Variety is the spice of life. That’s the fantastic thing about acting is all the different challenges it can provide you with. To limit yourself just to one would be foolish, therefore I’m looking forward to different things that come my way.”

The last ever episode of Merlin aired over Christmas on BBC One.
