Good news Primeval fans, BBC Worldwide has rescued it from extinction(sorry…that was bad I know). SciFi Wire reports:
“Under the new funding arrangements, BBC Worldwide, responsible for licensing the show to around 45 countries, replaces ITV as the program’s biggest investor.
Meanwhile, BBC America, which airs Primeval in the U.S., has joined Germany’s ProSieben as a co-production partner on the show.
As part of the deal, ITV will premiere the fourth season of the show in early 2011, while UKTV premieres the fifth season later the same year. It’s not clear when Primeval will cross the pond, but we expect it’ll be sometime the same year.”
I’m happy to hear this news because they really did leave us with a cliffhanger, those bastards.
