Deleted scenes

There were some shots, clips and scenes that were included in some airings of Primeval: New World but omitted from others:

  • The New World - In the UK version of the episode, there was a deleted scene where, after returning to the Tank from the Anomaly hunt with Drake in Stanley Park, Evan has a more extended flashback of the 2006 Albertosaurus incursion. Also, due to this, the flashback to the 2006 incursion at the end of The New World is shorter than in the Canadian airing.
  • Clean Up on Aisle Three - In a deleted scene available on the UK release of the episode, after the Canadian Tire security guard's body and the Hindu artefact are found, Dylan sings a Hindu lullaby as Mac and Evan watch, then explains the song's significance to them.
  • Babes in the Woods - In the UK version of the episode, there is an extra, epilogue scene at the end, in which Ken Leeds and Major Douglas discuss Leeds' loyalties at the military laboratory.

Cancellation

On 21 February 2013, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Primeval: New World had been cancelled after a single season. Low ratings for the series caused Space and Bell Media to decide against renewing the show for a second season. However, attempts have been made to try and change the decision to cancel Primeval: New World and get the show renewed for a second season.[1]

Trivia

  • The New World season was split into two parts, the first part consisting of episodes 1 - 8, and the second of episodes 9 - 13.
  • Primeval: New World has not featured any creatures from the future, excluding the ARC team from the near future in The Sound of Thunder: Part 2.
  • Connor Temple is the only character form the original Primeval show to make an appearance in Primeval: New World.
