PRIMEVAL Season 4 Prequel Videos

Watch five prequel videos of season 4 of PRIMEVAL which premieres on Saturday January 1st 2011 on BBC America. Primeval Synopsis: Season four picks up approximately 12 months after the end of season 3. One year after the death of Johnson and the disappearance of three key ARC personnel (Danny, Connor and Abby), the government lost faith in Lester’s abilities to run such a dangerous and expensive operation on his own. They placed the ARC in the hands of a public/private partnership, part-owned by the government, and partly by entrepreneurial scientist Philip Burton (think Richard Branson with a microscope). The ARC now operates from the industrial complex which houses Philip’s scientific empire – an estate of buildings with all the hustle and bustle of a thriving scientific community. As with any public/private partnership, there’s tension over who’s really in charge – Lester still runs the day-to-day operation but begrudgingly, he realizes that Philip will want involvement in the operation when it suits him.

BBC America Reveals Primeval Premiere Date

Seems like BBC America will be the place to park your tellys on during the holiday season this year. After announcing that this year's  Doctor Who Christmas Special , appropriately titled "A Christmas Carol," will air on Christmas Day, the same day as the U.K. broadcast, BBC America will give the U.S. audience the same treatment with the revival/season four premiere of  Primeval , which will air on New Year's Day on both sides of the pond. The new season of  Primeval  will pick up a year after the events of the third season cliffhanger that left fans in an uproar after the show was canceled. Well, thank God for second chances...

Good News, 'Primeval' Fans: the Show is Coming Back

It's good to report some TV news involving a canceled show that's actually good. Last June we gave you the news that 'Primeval,' the show where a team of scientists battles monsters coming through some sort of portal, wasn't going to be renewed for another season. Well, forget about all that because the show is coming back in 2011. The web site for the show says that the show will be able to come back for 13 new episodes next year because of a "unique international collaboration." Which I'm guessing means that various companies from various countries are putting some money behind the series. I like how the official site not only says that the show is coming back but that they're still going to have great special effects. So the monsters won't be hand puppets or people in suits a la Godzilla. Source Here
