We love a good surprise when it comes to TV news and have we got one! After being a big hit and signing all kinds of worldwide deals, ITV went ahead and canceled it’s hit sci-fi series Primeval. Here we are now a few months later and what the heck do they go and do? They uncancel it!
The list of shows that have been canceled and then uncanceled is a rather short one and we’re certainly glad to add Primeval to it. We must admit that, due to BBC America airing Primeval much later in the states than in the UK, news of the cancellation came in about half way through series 3 airing in the U.S. Being the petty, story obsessed TV snobs we are, DVR Life didn’t even bother watching the season finale because we were tipped off to the cliff hanger ending and figured…you know, why bother? So now we better catch up!
According to the press release, the series will return in 2011 with 13 new episodes featuring the same cast as series 3. No word on when it will air on BBC America, but we’re hoping for a summer return.
