Do you think there's any hope for Primeval returning in the future? Is there anything we can do to improve the chances of that happening? Petitions or whatnot?
Sorry it’s taken so long to get to this, Anon - my messages seem to be disappearing and appearing a lot depending on if I use the app or the website.
I think there is a small hope for Primeval returning - as long as the powers that be want to bring it back, there is always hope. Adrian Hodges and Tim Haines have both stated that they’d like it to come back in some format as there are still more stories to be told - that’s the reason they haven’t yet disclosed their vision for how all of the outstanding mysteries - Claudia Brown, the two Matts etc - would have been resolved.
Petitions might get some attention, but I know from other fan campaigns that showing there’s interest isn’t always enough. What we need is for someone - a network or channel - with money in their budget to decide to give the show another chance.
My hope is that someone, somewhere will have the sense to see that shows and films with dinosaurs are still and always will be a big draw for people - Jurassic World should prove that when it opens this year. Warner Bros have optioned the rights to a Primeval film so who knows? If Jurassic World is successful, and Primeval fans make their wants and wishes known around the same time, maybe we’ll finally get the resolution we want.
My advice would be to never stop hoping, never give up, and keep your love for the show alive and known on whatever social media platform you choose to use. Support the powers that be, support the cast, and keep your fingers crossed.
