Primeval: New World is a Canadian-British science fiction television series created by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens as a spin-off of the British series Primeval which involves a team who have to deal with animals from the past and future that travel through time to the present day through anomalies.
The series aired in Canada on Space from 29 October, 2012 to 19 February, 2013. There are 13 hour-long episodes in one season.

Primeval: New World follows the story of a Canadian team that discovers dangerous predators emerging onto the streets of Vancouver through anomalies in time.
Evan Cross, visionary inventor, heads up a team including predator control expert Dylan Weir, security specialist Mac Rendell, and physics prodigy Toby Nance.
Ange Finch, Evan's oldest friend and business partner, keeps Cross Phonetics afloat while Evan and his Special Projects Group track escapee dinosaurs.
The team gets a little help from the over-eager Lieutenant Ken Leeds, head of the government's decommissioned department for investigating alien life and other mysteries — including Anomalies.
The team quickly gains expertise in the prehistoric creatures they hunt, the weapons they need to handle them, and the nature of the Anomalies themselves.
They face danger side by side, and come to rely on each other for not only survival, but friendship as well.
Based on the original series from Impossible Pictures, Primeval: New World's creative team is led by executive producers Martin Wood (Sanctuary, Stargate: Atlantis) and Gillian Horvath (Sanctuary, Highlander).
The spin-off was created by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens (Star Trek: Enterprise, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World) and written by Gillian Horvath, Peter Hume (Charmed, Flash Gordon), Jon Cooksey (The Collector, The Outer Limits), Sarah Dodd (Flashpoint, Arctic Air), Katherine Collins (Endgame), and Judith and Garfield Reeve-Stevens.
