Primeval Cancelled

Posted on June 16, 2009


BBC News confirmed a rumor that ITV has canceled its sci-fi series Primeval after three successful seasons.

Starring Ben Miller, Douglas Henshall and Hannah Spearritt, the show followed a group of scientists studying prehistoric creatures.

“High quality drama remains a key part of the ITV schedule, although our current focus is on post-watershed production,” ITV said in a statement.

The show had an average audiences of about 5 million this year in the United Kingdom. The figure was down from around 6 million for the first two series.

I wonder if this has anything to do with my earlier Blog with information that Warner Brothers bought the rights to the show. Maybe it will be redone in America. If so, I really hope they use the same cast and don’t screw it up. It is a very good show the way it is.
