Primeval series 4 wraps filming

Tuesday, 29 June 2010
Filming on Primeval's fourth series has finished, ready for broadcast on ITV1 in early-2011 after post-production's completed. The cast/crew have moved on to film the fifth series, which will premiere on digital channel Watch in late-2011. The split is part of the show's unique co-financing deal with ITV, UKTV, BBC America and Germany's ProSieben.

Tim Haines, executive-producer:

"The cast and crew have been brilliant and they have put in a huge effort over the past four months to deliver some amazing work. We have also been very lucky in that Dublin has afforded us some fantastic new locations and the fact that we've filmed in HD for the first time means that the production values are higher than ever. The rough cuts I've seen are very exciting and I think we are going to deliver a show that will really please and delight the fans."
The confirmed cast for series 4 are: Hannah Spearritt, Andrew Lee-Potts, Ben Miller, Jason Flemyng, Lucy Brown, and Ben Mansfield. Newcomers include Alexander Siddig, CiarĂ¡n McMenamin, Ruth Bradley, Jonathan Byrne, Anton Lesser and Ruth Kearney. Laila Rouass did not return for filming, and it's unknown how the show will handle her character's absence.
