'Primeval' recommissioned for two series Primeval has been recommissioned for two series under a new co-production deal between ITV and UKTV. The arrangement, which also involves BBC America and German broadcaster Pro7, is for a seven-episode fourth series and a six-episode fifth. ITV1 will premiere series four in early 2011, while Watch will have the first run of series five later that year. ITV1 will then broadcast series five. Stars Andrew Lee Potts, Hannah Spearitt, Ben Miller and Jason Flemyng will all return for the new batch of episodes. "I am thrilled that ITV has agreed to this new deal, which will allow us to produce another 13 episodes of Primeval," said Tim Haines, creative director of Impossible Pictures. "The confidence demonstrated in the programme's continued success here and abroad will help us bring more big screen action and a whole host of new creatures roaring back into people's living rooms." The announcement comes three months after ITV axed the series.

source taken from bbcnews web site Primeval axed after three series Science fiction drama series Primeval has been axed after "three very successful series", ITV has confirmed. Starring Ben Miller, Douglas Henshall, and ex-S Club 7 star 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 five million this year. The figure was down from around six million for the first two series. Earlier this year, ITV announced 600 job cuts and says it is now aiming to cut a further Â£40m in 2010. Primeval may have suffered because of the big-budget computer effects needed to generate its fantastical creatures. Website Total Sci-Fi said it had been told by a source that Primeval's production team were "devastated" but that they had "every intention of keeping Primeval alive in other ways".
