After what seems endless 4 second teasers than show little more than some of the main characters we get to see the real spectacle of BBC’s upcoming Merlin replacement, Atlantis.

BBC America has it down as first airing on November 23rd, 2013 (Doctor Who‘s 50th Anniversary) but it looks like viewers in a UK will get the series sooner. However all this trailer says is Autumn…

Atlantis – Official Information

The city of Atlantis is a mysterious, ancient place. It’s into this strange, compelling realm that the young Jason arrives and an amazing adventure begins.

BBC America’s new 13-part fantasy drama series, created by Howard Overman (Misfits), Julian Murphy (Merlin) and Johnny Capps (Merlin), is set in a time of legendary heroes and mythical creatures.

A mysterious place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired Goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – this is the lost city of Atlantis.

The cast includes Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Jemima Rooper (One Man, Two Guvnors, Hex), Juliet Stevenson (The Hour), Sarah Parish (Hatfields & McCoys), Robert Emms (War Horse), Aiysha Hart (About Time) and Jack Donnelly (Dancing On The Edge).

The series is an Urban Myth Films production for BBC Cymru Wales co-produced with BBC America. Atlantis premieres Saturday, November 23 as part of Supernatural Saturday.
