Eureka's Niall Matter (Zane) and Vampire Diaries' Sara Canning (Jenna) are both set to star in Primeval: New World, which finished shooting this month in Vancouver. The creators have kept news about the 13-episode series under wraps, and casting details weren't even known until The Hollywood Reporter got hold of this info.
Sci-fi fans should also find a lot to love behind the camera, as Sanctuary and Stargate alum Amanda Tapping has signed on to direct some episodes, while longtime Stargate directors Martin Wood and Andy Mikita are also involved.
The rest of the cast includes Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries), Miranda Frigon (Sanctuary, Heartland), Geoff Gustafson (Supernatural, theatrical comedy Hot Tub Time Machine), and more. Additionally, British actor Andrew-Lee Potts has been tapped to reprise his role of Connor Temple from the original Primeval for the new series in a guest-starring capacity.
