HELL YEAH: Primeval’s New Season Premieres Saturday, May 16th on BBCA

With AMBUH from Footballers Wive$, y’all! Good to see Primeval bringing in some ethnic diversity – especially the hotness that is Laila Rouass.


Laila…got me on my knees!

Here’s where the new season starts, storywise:

At the start of the new season, Nick Cutter (Douglas Henshall) is still reeling from Stephen’s death and the extent of his wife Helen’s (Juliet Aubrey) betrayal. As he fights to re-focus his embattled team, the anomalies continue to present an unrelenting series of threats. If the team thought the Mammoth was a tough nemesis, then the Giganotosaurus is truly epic. Bigger and badder than a T-Rex, the dino-hunters are faced with the one predator they fear the most.

As deadlier creatures from the past and future continue to rampage through the anomalies, the cloak of secrecy behind which the team has been working is in jeopardy. Questions are being asked and the conspiracy spreads its net wide. If something is not done quickly, the team’s future is threatened – not to mention the future of humankind itself.

And there are photos…Andrew-Lee Potts is looking a little spicy there in his stripey scarf, waving around his weapon. And Jason Flemyng, Brad Pitt‘s dad in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, has also joined the cast:

And here’s the trailer:

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
