• It’s a good idea, at least if series 6 never happens Primeval will live on

      Perhaps – as a mutated, unrecognizable version of its former self, at least.

    Just a small correction to your story.  Space is a Canadian TV station not a US one.

    Bad idea. No Connor, Abby or Lester = not Primeval.

    Bloody Yankee’s stealing everything we have just because we’re better that they are!!!

      hey dont blame all of them

    • Dj28_99

      Bloody Yankee’s?  what an obtuse point of view.. It saddens me that Sci-fi fans bucketize each other just like the rest of the world..   I’m a sci-fi fan from America and love the Primeval show ; I’m really annoyed there might not be a season 6 ; Hell, i bought a code free dvd player and all of the seasons from the UK just so i could watch them. 

      Blame film makers and show producers if you want to blame anyone.. its all about the $$ to them ; I don’t want an American re-imagining of this show ; If there was a US version, i would much rather it was a show that worked in conjunction with the UK show and could have character cross overs, expanding the whole ‘universe’ of the show..

      And really…what have I or any American stolen from you? (anyone with this type of attitude)   Not a damn thing..  we are just human beings like the rest of you, with crappy governments, that make decisions we can hardly influence, and are hated by the entire rest of the world for it..  How about we all try to be a little bit better than that???

        What USA stole from us.lol. Much!!
        Freedom. bc you seems not know how to deal with other country’s
        Money bc you dont know how to spend yours in a rhite way.
        Culture bc you dont have it and thats the reason why you keep steeling the old worlds best works.
        And i can go on for a bit more time.lol.
        But iam wondering what US wil make from it,  prob a serie with 25 min film and 35 min adds

        • Dj28_99

          I see…so this became a discussion about how your a bigoted idiot, rather than a discussion about sci-fi ; I do so love political discussions.. “Hey, your not like me!! I hate you!!”  ; always such strong points to stand upon and usually so eloquently stated..

          Please, continue ; go on about this as much as you want.. 

          Use small words however, as it appears spelling is not your strong point..

        • Hanspy

          just replyed to the question you asked, sir. ”And really…what have I or any American stolen from you? ” And the spelling?yes iam an old dutch guy that speeks my languages much better than my writing. And i speek 5 .
          And i love SF , but the real SF not that creepy F what is getting popular latest times.

    aaaaaaaaarrrgghhhhh AAAAAARRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!! How dare they! I don’t want this to happen!! someone cancel this!!! They just sold the idea, without the characters or setting it just isn’t Primeval!!! A”“younger, sexier cast, gorier special effects “? How dare they!!! this sounds too stupid big money statesy to be Primeval!! Why can’t they just relocate like torchwood? I really hope for a series 6 now to correct this monumental error! Get your own ideas you Yankees/Canadians! Stop buying our shows! Don’t you have enough? And please UK people in charge, stop this treachery! You are selling our culture and individuality!! I want my real shows, untainted by foreign “bigger and boringer” spin-offs! AAAARRRGGGHHH! Although it might just be good if the description has been overblown to draw people in. “older, darker and scarier” sounds good. maybe. maybe. If they make a regular series 6. If it set in the primeverse and features old character guest appearances, and isn’t some stupid money-orientated reboot. maybe.

    • looks like our primeavl series 6 answers have been answered STUPID AMERICA (no fence anyone)

    Everything that the UK make the Americans steal: Torchwood, Sherlock and now Primeval. They dont even make it better GGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRR

      and the IT crowd life on mars so whats next eastenders

  • We don’t need a SOAP OPERA!  Sexier and relationships? Arrrrrrgh!  Season 6 is ALL I have to say!

  • Now, now… don’t be hating the USA… fact is… I’d prefer to be watching UK shows far more often… one possible saving grace… it may be done in Canada – not Hollywood or New York.

    Oh, PLEASE. This is just sad. I don’t hate my country, but I have a low opinion of our sci-fi these days. We’ve cancelled every good show and replaced them with either reality shows or sappy dramas whose sci-fi elements lie more in the unrealistically complicated and boring love lives of their characters than in the actual plot.

    If Primeval had/has a fault, it’s the excessive emphasis they gave to Abby and Connor’s romance. So now we’re going to have even more of that? And what about the younger cast? What are they going to be, 12-year-olds? It’s not as if the British cast were pensioners. And finally, do we really need more fake blood and guts splashed across the camera? So much for this being a family show. I sincerely hope that “New Order” doesn’t become the only surviving incarnation of Primeval. Even if the British show has to go through some cast changes, it would still have to be better than this garbage idea.

    • Bailey1ak

      So completely agree with your comments.  I quite liked the show the way it was and don’t want more violence and “younger, sexier” cast.  I love the old cast and watched it because of the old cast.  Doesn’t sound like something I could continue to watch with my daughter. grrrrr

  • Tiernan Walker

    bet they do what they did to life on mars…

  • Ey6021

    This is really sad, this is like cultural invasion,
    torchwood is bad enough to lose almost all the UK traits and fell into US soap.
    This is even worse!

    One question, what’s the point of doing
    this?

    well not like torchwood since torchwood is the same show but this  is based on it not anything the do with the uk one so if its crap who cares

  • TinmanHasRusted

    At least it would continue the show in some way.  With the English version there isn’t any certainty whether the show is going to last more than a season before it is on the chopping block again.

    Any continuation is better than no continuation.
    I’m not sure I like the sound of their plans, but it beats abrupt cancellation.

  • Josh Ashby

    americans!!!!!!!! stop stealing our bloody ideas. be original and get a backbone and make ur own bloody ideas.

    • Fossil585

      Americans?  Sorry from what I read its a UK/Canadian venture.

      Personally I would prefer to see Primeval stay a UK production, even though the franchise was pretty much gutted when Nick Cutter was murdered.

      Re: the comments about Torchwood.  Again I would rather see this as a UK production.  I haven’t seen the US version of Torchwood yet, but I imagine it will have an over the top appearance and under the belly charisma.

      I didn’t like the fact that both Torchwood and Primeval were canceled and complained to the BBC.

      If you don’t like the fact that these shows are being picked up by other countries, I suggest you contact the BBC and the production companies like this Yankee did.

  • british and proud!

    You american t***s always steal our shows…why can’t you come up with something else and leave us to it, the uk version did great without you and your just gonna ruin the whole idea and just scrap it after you find out the hard way

  • Frank Quintana

    whoa whoa, i know what you are going at (I am an American) but if there is no Series 6 would it be better then what they did with Prehistoric Park? after the last episode of season 1 they just killed the series. i like waited a whole year before i realised they cancelled it. For this i am on both sides.

  • Anonymous

    Alright, you UK wankers and wankees. The US either buys your product outright or we take it from your scrap heaps. That is where the UK  geniuses have placed Primevel; more than once. Too stupid to recognize quality and success.

    For those with their collective heads up their arses; it is a planned Canadian production; not USA. So, get your facts right and hang a few of your own country men and women before trying to hunt with the big dogs… Wipe your own backside for a change. LMAO…

  • Alex Smith

    I’m british, and I want this to happen, because we will see a crossover of the U.K characters in the 1st episode, and then it’ll head on with the new team where they are, I hope there is Series 6, but if there isn’t, then this will have to do, I’d like a Series 6 to run alongside this one, there we could see the problems in 2 areas of the world.

  • i think that it will be interseting to see what is made of primeval in canada i dont think it is right to pass judgment until you at least see the first episode and if you dont like it then you can complain. i too would like the uk series to continue with serise six i have loved the show since it stared the serise has had some brilliant episodes and a great story with brillant characters. and if there is no series six then it has been a bloody good run and we can be proud to say that the uk made primeval. and as i have looked through the comments i see alot of people have been referring to torchwood i can say when i found out about the new torchwood i could not wait for it but after watching it i was dissapointed with it. i found the story was not that good but the characters i did like and the actors did a good job playing them. i admit the trochwood serise was better when it was made in the uk but i watched the new serise before passing judgment. and that is what i am going to do with primeval if i dont like it then it will be sad for me but others proboley will like the new primeval and hopefuly it will be just as big of an succes as the uk primeval. and i think it will be intresting to see how they try to match up to the standards of primeval fans.
