The fifth series of Primeval is to finally air on ITV1. The sci-fi drama's most recent run will premiere on June 16, producers Impossible Pictures have confirmed. The show was renewed for two more series by ITV and digital channel Watch in 2009. Under the joint agreement, ITV had first broadcast rights on Primeval's fourth series, with Watch then being able to air the episodes at a later date. Watch would then air the fifth series first - which it did between May and June 2011 - with ITV having second run rights.

The future of the original Primeval is currently unclear with no further episodes (more) »
