However, Potts’ co-star Hannah Spearritt is currently not expected to return as Abby.
The “older, darker and scarier” 13-part series is currently filming in Vancouver and will air in the UK on entertainment channel Watch later this year.
Primeval: New World will introduce an “all new team… of animal experts and scientists who investigate the appearance of temporal anomalies and battle both prehistoric and futuristic creatures”.
The cast includes Niall Matter (A Town Called Eureka) as “enterprising inventor and visionary hero” Evan Cross, and Sara Canning (Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Smallville) as Dylan Weir, a “predator attack expert and specialist in animal behaviour”.
Steve Hornsey, Watch’s General Manager commented: “Watch aspires to deliver out of the ordinary entertainment, and following the success of Primeval V last year we believe that the Primeval franchise is a huge asset to the channel and look forward to following the adventures of the Primeval team.”
