The Syfy Channel will be repeating the first season of Merlin starting December 13th and a marathon of Merlin Season 2 episodes during the day of January 7th.
From Press Release:
Season three sees the young wizard Merlin (Colin Morgan) in increasingly more dangerous and dark battles in his secret quest to protect Prince Arthur (Bradley James) in the fabled kingdom of Camelot where magic is forbidden by King Uther (Anthony Head). They rejoin Katie McGrath as the mesmerizing Morgana, who has a dark destiny of her own, Angel Coulby as her loyal maid Gwen, and Richard Wilson as wise Court physician Gaius. The new season sees our heroes pushed to their limits as the kingdom is thrown into turmoil by the return of Morgana from a year’s absence. As misbegotten secrets are exposed and old friends choose new sides, the battle for Camelot has truly begun.
A host of new guest stars joins the regular cast to enthrall audiences over the 13-episode run, including four actors from the Harry Potter films: Harry Melling will play Merlin’s friend Gilli; Warwick Davis assumes the role of bridgekeeper Grettir; Miriam Margoyles will play Grunhilda; and Mark Williams is voice of a mischievous Goblin. Guest stars from the previous season such as Emilia Fox who plays Morgause, and Santiago Cabrera, who plays Lancelot, will also be returning for the new season.
