Primeval, the popular British science fiction television program, is returning for its fifth season in Canada on Space Television beginning November 10th. The fifth season first aired in the UK in May and June of this year.

The show follows a team of scientists tasked with investigating the appearance of temporal anomalies across Great Britain through which prehistoric and futuristic creatures enter the present.

The season premiere opens with an attack by a vicious burrowing creature which brings chaos to the city. The Anomaly Research Center (ARC) team is forced to race from location to location in an attempt to trap it. When the creature launches its final attack, one ARC team member is in the line of fire.

The return of the U.K. series follows Space’s September announcement that it has ordered a Canadian spin-off called Primeval: New World. New World will consist of 13 one hour episodes that build on the mythology of the U.K. show.
