ITV has confirmed that after three series Primeval is being pulled from screens. Despite racking up viewing figures of around 5 million during its regular Saturday night slot, the decision is final on the future of the series. A spokesperson for ITV had this to say about the cancellation:
SciFiNow recently interviewed Tim Haines, producer of the BBC’s Walking With Dinosaurs and co-creator of ITV’s hit series Primeval. Throughout the interview Haines discussed his likes and dislikes in the sci-fi genre.
In what has reportedly been a six-figure deal, Warner Bros. has bought up the screen rights to ITV’s Primeval. According to Variety, this adaptation will be presided over by Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster, and will be distributed through Goldsman’s affiliate Weed Road Pictures.
