Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham was confirmed to join the cast back in April, while John Bradley will play a character named Tyr Seward.
Johnny Capps the co-creator and executive producer said that Anthony Head will repeat his roles as Uther Pendragon and the series will potentially be turned into a trio of full-length films after filming on series five has finished.
Capps further said: “We’re hopefully going to do a trilogy – three movies. We will focus on them when we finish season five.
“One idea we’ve been playing around with is to reboot the whole series [for the films]. We would go back in time and start the story again and show different parts that you didn’t see in the series. The other idea is to do a continuation, but we haven’t decided yet.”
