‘Primeval: New World’ Canceled

The spin-off series Primeval: New World has been canceled by Canada’s Space channel after only one season on the air.

According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, the series that starred former ‘The Vampire Diaries’ regular Sara Canning and ‘Eureka’ alum Niall Matter will not be back for a second season.

‘Primeval: New World’ is (or now I should say was), of course, the spin-off of the popular BBC series ‘Primeval’ that ran for five seasons in the U.K. and was reaired here in the United States on Syfy and BBC America. The series followed a specialized team of animal experts and scientists that investigated the appearance of temporal anomalies and battled both prehistoric and futuristic creatures.

It is being reported that weak ratings are behind the cancellation of the series, but Syfy still plans to air the series here in the States after a sale by international distributor Entertainment One.
