News straight from Digi Spy

As usual I have nabbed some news of digital spy! Anyway here:

Production on the new series of Primeval is believed to be under way in Ireland.

IFTN reports that shooting began on March 22 and will continue until early November, when all scenes for series four and five are expected to have been completed.

Primeval was recommissioned for a seven-episode fourth run and a six-episode fifth last September under a new co-production deal between ITV and UKTV.

Hannah Spearritt (Abby Maitland), Andrew-Lee Potts (Connor Temple), Ben Miller (James Lester) and Ben Mansfield (Captain Becker) are among those returning as regular cast members. Meanwhile, Irish stars CiarĂ¡n McMenamin and Ruth Kearney have reportedly joined the show to play new characters Matt and Jess.

It is thought that the new run will pick up "several months" after the series three cliffhanger, which saw Connor and Abby stuck in the distant past with no idea of how to return home.

In an interview last year, Potts promised that there are "shocking" plots ahead for Primeval.
