My name's Matt Anderson. Two years ago I was hired by a secret government agency called the ARC. I am part of a team of elite individuals who predict, detect, and contain time portals known as anomalies. Just months before I was employed, the ARC's lead scientist Professor Nick Cutter was murdered by his psychopathic wife Helen, who plotted to destroy humanity. ARC members Connor Temple, Abby Maitland, and Danny Quinn were sent to stop her, but never returned...or so it seemed. In a miraculous twist of fate, Connor and Abby returned through an anomaly nearly a year later, and soon we were faced with a project called New Dawn, which threatened to destroy all life on Earth. We managed to succeed in stopping it, but the battle rages on, and there's always a new threat. Wherever there's a rip in time, you'll know where to find us...- Matt Anderson's opening introduction in the first episode.
This is a new series I am creating. It focuses on the events following series 5, and will center around some of the important plot points from the last series, such as Matt's visit from his alternate self, Jess and Becker's relationship, and the fate of Danny Quinn and his brother Patrick. It also discusses how the ARC no longer needs to keep the anomalies a secret after the Convergence. Everyone now knows about these holes in time, and the ARC has become more of a pest control service than a secret government organization. The series' storyline also has some mingling with that of Primeval: New World, such as guest appearances by Evan Cross, Dylan Weir, and the Albertosaurus that killed Evan's wife, as well as using the same Utahraptor, Albertosaurus, and Triceratops CGI models that appeared in New World. The first series will have ten episodes, each one sixty minutes long (forty-five minutes without the commercials). In the UK, series 1 will premiere on Watch and BBC One in May 2013, and will finish around early July. In Canada and the USA, it will premiere on SPACE and BBC America in September 2013. Series 2 will follow with a February 2014 premiere. A third series is also planned, and it is set to air in September 2014. It has now been confirmed that the series will return for a fourth season, but any further details for it are yet to be released. All the seasons will be released together on DVD in January 2015. The series will be written and directed by CyborgIguana, a long-time fan of Primeval and Primeval: New World. also a film is being produced and will be released in may 2014

Season 1 EpisodesEdit
The team is still recovering from the fifth series' drama, and Matt is still contemplating his visit and warning from the "second Matt". However, the anomalies just won't give the ARC a break, and the team is called to deal with a Yutyrannus on the rampage in the Natural History Museum.
An anomaly opens outside a gas station, and the ARC team has to round up a herd of Lystrosaurus. But can they get these hefty vegetarians home before their anomaly closes? Even worse, another group of creatures also came through before the ARC team arrived: but they are far less friendly.
An anomaly leading to Pleistocene New Zealand opens in a city park. A pair of giant moas come through, and as always the ARC has to deal with the situation. No problem, just a few oversized ostriches. But let's see if they feel the same way about the Haast's Eagle that followed the moas into the present. Also, it seems that the alternate Matt is popping up everywhere. Is he just a hallucination, or is he trying to tell Matt something?
After going through an anomaly located in the ARC's car park, Connor and Abby find themselves trapped in the Cretaceous. And with hungry packs of Carcharodontosaurus stalking them, will they make it back to the present alive?
The team faces off against a colony of flesh-eating spiders from the future when an anomaly opens in a warehouse. But this anomaly has another surprise in store: an old, long lost friend.
An anomaly to the early Cretaceous USA opens in a middle school, and a pack of Utahraptors emerge. Danny has been officially re-employed by the ARC, and Lester wants Matt to take this mission off to show Danny around the new building and teach him the ropes. So only Connor, Abby, Becker, and Emily are sent.
A Hatzegopteryx attacks an amusement park. Though the visitors came for a thrilling experience, this flying monster is a little more thrilling than they wanted. Of course, the ARC is called to send the creature back home, but how will they contain the biggest animal ever to rule the skies?
The ARC hears reports of a number of gruesome murders in the London downtown area, and decide to investigate. Turns out the murderer is a creature that has become more than acquainted with the ARC over the years.
A panicked Giraffatitan is released from an anomaly into downtown London, and causes a great deal of unintentional damage and chaos. The ARC will have some trouble getting this Jurassic behemoth home.
An Aegisuchus comes through an anomaly into a reservoir and causes chaos. The ARC has to send this massive beast back to where it came from, but they may be too late.
Season 2 EpisodesEdit
An anomaly opens on a farm in the countryside just outside of London. A pack of Troodons are released, and the land-owners call the ARC, seeing the mischievous creatures as a threat to their livestock. These cunning predators turn out to be quite a handful for the team.
An anomaly to a Pliocene-era sea opens up near the London docks, and a Megalodon soon emerges from it and causes chaos in the waters around London. This ancient shark is by far the most savage predator the ARC team has ever dealt with, and this time they just might be in over their heads.
An injured Woolly Mammoth comes through an anomaly. When the team discovers a spearhead lodged in the mammoth's flank, they discover that it was being hunted by a clan of Neanderthals. Soon the Neanderthals come through the anomaly to reclaim their quarry, and the ARC team must protect the mammoth.
An anomaly leading to early Cretaceous China opens in a cemetery, and a Yutyrannus and a pack of Mei long come through. While there, the ARC meets a sinister man who wants control over the anomalies. But in an attempt to stop him the team becomes marooned in the Cretaceous.
When a city bus disappears through an anomaly in downtown London, the ARC team must initiate a rescue mission through the anomaly to rescue the bus and its passengers. But it seems that a pack of Raptors has located the hapless humans first, and the ARC team must race against the clock to reach the bus before it is attacked by the bloodthirsty predators.
An anomaly to Late Cretaceous Canada opens on Oxford Street, and a panicked herd of Chasmosaurus stampede through it, chased by a pack of voracious Albertosaurus. The ARC must arrive to round up the creatures, but on the scene they meet a man named Evan Cross who's past seems to be somehow tied with that of the Albertosaurus pack-leader. What's more, Connor seems to know 2 things or 3 about him.
After a fishing boat disappears without a trace, the team finds that it had disappeared through an anomaly. The ARC team goes through to rescue them, but quickly find themselves in 80-million-year-old Kansas, when the state was flooded by the most deadly sea of all time, home to some of the most terrifying sea monsters the planet has ever known. Also, the team is worried after hearing about several murders that had occured over the past week? Did they leave one of the creatures from their previous mission behind in the present day?
Season 3 EpisodesEdit
A mother Triceratops and her calf come through an anomaly leading to the very end of the Cretaceous period. However, they were followed by a ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex that has come to reclaim its prize. And there is another, third surprise for the ARC team in store.
Connor and Abby are finally getting married, but an incursion by a Protoceratops and a pack of Velociraptor from Cretaceous Mongolia force them to postpone their wedding. Meanwhile, the second Matt Anderson finally reveals his intentions.

So when 2 young male Gorgonopsids comes through to take over the Pride, the team does not hesitate to help the Pride fend off the intruders.
An anomaly incursion unleashes a herd of Saurolophus, a Therizinosaurus, and a Tarbosaurus. But before the team can arrive on the anomaly site, they realize that the Tarbosaurus is already lurking around the outside of the ARC building, and they will need to get past it before they can deal with the other creatures. How much damage can a herd of dinosaurs cause when the ARC is not there to stop them?
A pack of Deltadromeus and a Kaprosuchus attack a skate park when an anomaly opens to Middle Cretaceous Africa, and the ARC uses the juvenile Gorgonopsids they couldn't get home as hunting dogs to track the predators down.

Yet another group of creatures has also come through: the rest of Emily's Time Tribe!
An anomaly opens in an art gallery, and while no creatures have come out, the ARC team decides to go through to "scan the area" for any predators that might be waiting to attack the 21st century. After encounters with a herd of Argentinosaurus and a Giganotosaurus, the team comes across an abandoned Argentinosaurus nest site. When they find that one egg is still alive, the team takes it back through with them to the safety of the ARC building. Can the gang help a baby dinosaur hatch?
A Megalania comes through an anomaly in a rugby stadium and causes havoc. Little does the team know that an old aquaintence of theirs has also come through. More shocking is a Mob of Kangaroos with an unusual Joey.
Season 4 EpisodesEdit
When an anomaly opens that releases deadly volcanic smoke and ash, the team goes through to find out why this is happening. It turns out the anomaly leads to the ash-choked, dark, post-apocalyptic wasteland several thousand years after the asteroid strike that triggered the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. After walking amongst fires, dead trees, and the bones and rotting corpses of numerous dinosaur species, the team is in for the shock of their lives when they are attacked by a pack of intelligent mutated Troodons that survived the initial blast.
This teaser was the first trailer released for the Primeval Resurrected series. The trailer opens showing only blackness, but then an enormous yellow eye opens, and the camera zooms into its pupil. A clawed hand slashes the screen, carving the word "Primeval" in blood red lettering. The word "Resurrected", written in flaming letters, then rises from underneath. A dinosaur growl is heard, and the screen fades to black.
Series 1 TrailerEdit
The official trailer for the first series opens to show an anomaly, which the camera zooms through. While the Primeval theme music plays, footage is shown of various scenes from the confirmed episodes, such as the Yutyrannus confronting the robotic T.rex in the Natural History Museum, the Hatzegopteryx attacking the roller coaster, the shadow of the Utahraptor on the school wall, Danny Quinn pushing Connor out of the way of the future spider, Becker herding the Lystrosaurus, and the second Matt Anderson staring from the shadows of the ARC. The words Primeval Resurrected appear in red lettering as the screen turns black. A Carcharodontosaurus appears and roars before knocking the letters over with its tail, and the trailer ends.
Series 2 TrailerEdit
The trailer for series 2 contained one clip from each episode. The pair of Troodons watching the team from the hilltop, the Megalodon charging towards Becker's shark cage, the injured Woolly Mammoth coming out of the anomaly, the ARC team watching the Euhelopus herd in awe, a Raptor watching the ARC team from a distance, an Albertosaurus pinning a Chasmosaurus to the ground, and a trio of Mosasaurs swimming toward the lost fishing boat. The screen then turns black, and the words Primeval Resurrected Is Back! appear on the screen before the Albertosaurus from New World pushes the titles aside, roars, lunges toward the viewer, roars again, and attempts to break out of the screen, cracking the glass in the process. The trailer then ends.
The current episodes have received generally favorable reviews, praised for their original and exciting storylines, cool and creepy new creatures, and the return of all the characters they have come to know and love, as well as a few new faces in the mix. One reviewer states that "while not as entertaining as the original show, Primeval Resurrected offers a brand-new take on the Primeval franchise, and deserves to last at least a few seasons".
