"Primeval" Maybe Not So Extinct After All?

ITV1 Saves Primeval from Extinction

As you know, I'm a big Primeval fan. Or was, anyway. The third--and until now, presumed final--season of the series turned into a big ol' mess, in my opinion, with the three actors who played the most important characters leaving the show and one of them being replaced by a cartoonish "man of action" as the new leader, and so upon hearing of the show's cancelation I thought, "Well, I suppose it's good riddance then."

But now, apparently, it's coming back after all, with two new seasons slated to begin in 2011. I don't know what they've got planned for the return, but I'd like to offer them this bit of advice. Bring back Nick Cutter, Helen Cutter and Jenny Lewis. Let's have some of that season 1 and 2 magic back and pretend all the narrative letdowns and continuity issues of season 3 didn't happen!
