Primeval returns to Space for season 5, beginning Nov. 10

SPACE gives new meaning to the term “creature comforts” when Season 5 of the hit British sci-fi drama PRIMEVAL premieres Thursday, Nov. 10 at 10 p.m. ET.

The fast-paced fusion of action, adventure, dinosaurs, monsters and hair-raising special effects remain intact, but something insidious is happening to the PRIMEVAL team as wicked secrets boil to surface.

Relationships will be tested and anomalies are becoming even more unpredictable and numerous. Following the television broadcast, episodes are available on demand at

The return of the popular U.K. series follows SPACE’s announcement that it has ordered PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD, a 13-episode, one-hour scripted action/adventure drama that builds on the mythology of the U.K. hit. Developed in association with Omni Film Productions (DEFYING GRAVITY, ARCTIC AIR) and the producers of the original U.K. series, Impossible Pictures, SPACE will act as lead broadcaster on the new Canadian original drama series. Production begins in Vancouver this winter.

Abby (HANNAH SPEARRITT) and Matt (CIARAN MCMENAMIN) in the Season 5 premiere of PRIMEVAL, airing Thursday, Nov. 10 at 10 p.m. ET on SPACE and SPACE HD.

PRIMEVAL follows the Anomaly Research Center (ARC) team as it battles dinosaurs in present day Britain. The dinosaurs appeared when rips in time started opening across the UK, endangering lives and putting the whole of humanity at risk. To deal with these “creature incursions,” a crack team of specialists was appointed by the government, creating the ARC.

The season premiere opens with an attack by a vicious burrowing creature which brings chaos to the city. The team is forced to race from location to location in an attempt to trap it. When the creature launches its final attack, one ARC team member is in the line of fire.

Season 5 of PRIMEVAL sees the return of Cirian McMenamin (Matt), Andrew-Lee Potts (Connor), Hannah Spearritt (Abby), Ben Mansfield (Becker), Ruth Kearney (Jess), Ben Miller (James Lester) and Alexander Siddig (Philip Burton).
