If you’re a fan of the British series Primeval, or think you might enjoy a show about time-space anomalies spitting dinosaurs out all over the place, we may have just the solution for you. The original Primeval has crossed the pond and spawned a North American spin-off, appropriately entitled Primeval: New World. From the looks of this new trailer for the series, it looks like we can expect…well, pretty much the same stuff as in Primeval, but with slightly fewer British accents.
New World is a Canadian production, and will supposedly be “older, darker and scarier” than its parent series. That will include an “all new team… of animal experts and scientists who investigate the appearance of temporal anomalies and battle both prehistoric and futuristic creatures.” Aside from sticking with the same general concept as the original Primeval, the spin-off is also carrying over one cast member, Andrew-Lee Potts who plays Connor. Cultbox says he’ll only guest star, though, so the focus will remain on the new crew. I’m also pretty sure I saw Eureka‘s Colin Ferguson in that trailer too. Makes sense: they’re both Canadian productions and Eureka is over.
Primeval: New World will air this fall on the British channel Watch, but so far there’s no date for it here in the States. We’ll let you know if/when that changes.
