Primeval: New World – the spin-off of Impossible Picture’s Primeval – has been cancelled by Canadian broadcaster Space after airing one low rated season of 13 episodes. The series was acquired by UKTV’s Watch channel last year and is currently being broadcast on the channel here in the UK, while Syfy has acquired the series for broadcast in the US. Word is that the series’ producers are shopping the series to other networks in the hopes of a last minute revival.
Primeval: New World is a spin-off of the British series Primeval and follows a specialized team of animal experts and scientists that investigates the appearance of temporal anomalies and battles both prehistoric and futuristic creatures. The series is produced by Impossible Pictures & Omni Films and stars Niall Matter (Eureka), Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries), Miranda Frigon (Heartland), Geoff Gustafson (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Danny Rahim (Eastenders). The show’s first season consists of 13 episodes and is due to premiere on Syfy in the US this April.
