Season 4

Primeval is a British science fiction television series created by Adrian Hodges and Tim Haines and produced for ITV by Impossible Pictures which follows a team of five scientists tasked with investigating the appearance of temporal anomalies across Great Britain and containing prehistoric and futuristic creatures which enter the present.

The series originally aired in the UK on ITV from 10 February, 2007 to 6 June, 2009. It was officially cancelled by ITV in June 2009 but a deal was struck between ITV, Watch, Impossible Pictures, German broadcaster Pro7 and BBC Worldwide to produce two new seasons of the show for transmission in 2011.

Primeval premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Tuesday 14 October 2008, at 20h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 4 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Saturday 7 January 2012, at 19h00. Thereafter new episodes broadcast weekly at 19h30. There are seven episodes in the fourth season.

Season 4

Multi-award winning monster hit Primeval returns, and one year on from the traumatic events of the previous season, the team faces fresh questions, a new boss, new recruits, a new ARC base and even more terrifying creatures.

Following the death of Johnson and the disappearance of three key ARC personnel - Danny, Connor and Abby – the government has lost faith in Lester's abilities to manage the operation on his own.

The ARC is now in the hands of a public/private partnership; part-owned by the government, and partly by entrepreneurial scientist Philip Burton. But who's really in charge?

A new team has been recruited to replace the missing trio; team leader Matt is more than an ex-soldier – he's an ethologist, with an uncanny ability to understand animals, but there's mystery surrounding his background.

Jess now facilitates the team's operations from the ARC Control Centre and, having resigned from the military, Becker now works as a private soldier for Philip's organisation.

Meanwhile, in the year they spent stranded in the Cretaceous, Connor and Abby have become closer in every sense and are now very much in love.

Danny, however, remains missing in action, and when he does eventually return, the information he has about Helen Cutter is to have a profound effect on the team.

With all the action, thrills and dazzling special effects audiences have come to expect from this blockbuster franchise, this season of Primeval is the most thrilling yet.

Primeval was created by Adrian Hodges (screenwriter of the film Tom & Viv) and Tim Haines (writer/director of Walking with Dinosaurs).
