New Space series Primeval: New World premieres Monday, Oct. 29

Prehistoric creatures are about to invade Vancouver with the premiere of the highly-anticipated Space original series, Primeval: New World.

Sinking its teeth into Space’s fall lineup beginning Monday, Oct. 29 at 10 p.m. ET, the series stars a flock of genre luminaries, including Niall Matter (Eureka) and Sara Canning (Vampire Diaries).

The North American spin-off follows a specialized team of animal experts and scientists who discover dinosaurs and other dangerous predators emerging onto the streets of modern-day Vancouver through anomalies in time, and features guest star Andrew Lee Potts as Connor Temple from the original U.K. series.

Featuring over 70 visual effects shots in each of the 13 one-hour episodes, the monster of a series will also include 16 land, sea, sky, and sand creatures created by Atmosphere Visual Effects, supervised by Mark Savela (Stargate Universe).

Leading up to the premiere, fans can fulfill their curiosity about the new series through the official, soon-to-launch, Primeval: New World website featuring an episode guide, cast bios, behind the scenes content, and more. Users can also download high quality visual effects from the series and insert themselves into the dino-action via green screen. A mobile action game is also set to unleash before the premiere, and will take fans inside the series via their IOS devices, as they defend the streets of Vancouver from dinosaur attacks. Users can inhabit a team member and work to capture creatures and rescue civilians. Episodes of Primeval: New World will also be available online at Spacecast.com following their premiere.

In Primeval: New World, while investigating temporal anomalies, a Special Projects Group battles prehistoric creatures. Led by Evan Cross (Matter), an enterprising inventor and visionary hero, the team is comprised of predator attack expert and specialist in animal behaviour Dylan Weir (Canning), security specialist Mac Rendell (Danny Rahim, EastEnders), and physics prodigy Toby Nance (Crystal Lowe, Smallville). Ange Finch (Miranda Frigon, Heartland), Evan’s oldest friend and business partner, keeps things afloat while Evan and his group track the escapee dinosaurs, with the overeager help of Lieutenant Ken Leeds (Geoff Gustafson, Hot Tub Time Machine), head of the government’s decommissioned department for investigating alien life and other mysteries.
