A monster comeback; TV LAND Telly news & gossip.
IT was declared extinct - but Primeval lives to fight another day!
Cash-strapped ITV1 bosses decided the dinosaur show was as dead as a dodo earlier this year because it was too pricey to keep making.
But new life has been breathed into the sci-fi drama, thanks to a deal with UKTV to share it.
Now series four will premiere on ITV1 in 2011 while series five will be shown first on pay-TV channel Watch (but swiftly repeated on ITV1).
The CGI show - featuring lots of monsters and people caught in time-slips - will again star real-life lovebirds Hannah Spearritt and Andrew Lee Potts, with help from Jason Flemyng.
Show boss Tim Haines, of Impossible Pictures, says: "We'll bring a whole host of new creatures roaring back into people's living rooms."
Dive behind the sofa (um, in a year or so, obviously).
REPRIEVE Primeval's Hannah Spearritt
