The series, which starred Sara Canning as a predatory behaviour expert in a world where animals and people travel through time, will not be getting a second outing following lower-than-expected ratings on the Bell Media-owned channel.

Produced by the UK’s Impossible Pictures and Canada’s Omni Film Productions, it was also picked up by US cable network Syfy, UK network Watch and Germany’s ProSieben following sales by Entertainment One.

Primeval originally aired on ITV in the UK and ran for five seasons until 2011.
