We want to see Primeval: New World in the US!
Alas! The beloved original UK Primeval has chased its last dino. But there is hope on the horizon, with the Vancouver-set-and-shot spinoff Primeval: New World set to air in Canada, Germany, Franceand the UK late this year/early next.
Sadly for US fans, we've not heard anything yet about a US distributor picking up the show. Both BBC America and Syfy have aired the original in previous years, yet there's no indication yet that either channel is considering this new installment. Cue uncontrollable fan sobbing.
What are they waiting for? We're not sure. But we do hope a petition might help. Petition drives are pretty useless for saving a show that's already dying in the ratings, but in terms of showing that there's a huge potential market for something new? That can help.
So, here it is:
Dear programming folks at Syfy and BBC America,
We US fans of Primeval are mourning the loss of our beloved show, andwould dearly like to seeits new Canadian spinoff. Pleasepleaseplease would one of you consider picking it up? Don't make us have to sic a baby raptor on you. That would get messy.
