No Abby or Connor in Primeval Series 6?
It’s not just Primeval’s future that remains uncertain – two of longest serving characters may not return for a sixth series.
In an interview with Digital Spy back in May, Andrew-Lee Potts (Connor) and Hannah Spearritt (Abby) were unsure about whether they would come back.
Have you heard anything about a potential sixth series?
Andrew: “We’ve heard nothing at all, but we never do until they need to contact us! I know that [production company] Impossible Pictures definitely want to keep Primeval alive in one way or another. I think that people thought, ‘If it does come back, it has to come back strong’ and I think we did. If you consider how many cast members have changed, and also our shift to [filming in] Dublin, and the new ARC, and all the other changes in the show, I think we’ve done quite well, and established ourselves as a regenerated show. We kind of had to do that, because of the year off [between series three and four]. It definitely evolved. Primeval deserves to carry on, and I hope it does. As for mine and Hannah’s involvement in that, we’re not entirely sure.”
So would you be interested in coming back for another series?
Hannah: “That’s it, we’re not entirely sure.”
Andrew: “But we will say that Primeval is super-close to our hearts, and it always will be.”
Hannah: “We’ve got a massive soft spot for Primeval. It’s given us a lot.”
