TV Guide is reporting that Syfy has picked up a fourth season of Merlin after continued ratings success in Season 3. The fantasy drama - a retelling of the famous legend of Merlin - airs worldwide and had already secured a 10-episode fourth season last year for BBC One in the UK.

US audiences will get to continue enjoying the series when Season 4 returns stateside in 2012, thanks to a 12 percent increase in viewership this past season compared to Season 2.
