The fan-favorite animated series ‘PRIMAL’ is returning to Adult Swim for a third season. The series, created and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, has entered production with most of the original staff returning.
“Combining artistry, emotion and pulse-pounding action, the first two seasons of the series followed a caveman at the dawn of evolution as he forms an unlikely friendship with an almost extinct dinosaur. After bonding over unfortunate tragedies, they ostensibly become each other’s only hope of survival until a final standoff becomes fatal,” Warner Bros. Discovery said in a statement.
“The second season of “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal” reached nearly 4 million viewers on Adult Swim last year, ranking as a top 10 animated series on cable in P18-49 and among the top 5 most watched Adult Swim original series on linear. On Max, “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal” is the 6th most popular Adult Swim series since the platform launched domestically. Outside of the US, the series is the 2nd most popular Adult Swim series since launch,” they added.
Tartakovsky expressed his excitement saying, “It’s happening!! ‘Primal’ has become a contagious disease that I don’t ever want to cure. Every episode flows out like an unstoppable force beyond my control. Prepare yourselves ‘Primal’ fans for Season 3 is coming!!!”
The show was launched in 2020 for its premier season and the second season arrived in 2022.

The premise explains that the show is set, “in an anachronistic and fantastical prehistoric world, the premise is a bond between a Neanderthal named Spear and a female Tyrannosaurus Rex named Fang as they struggle to survive, encountering various dangerous fauna and people that live in their world while also encountering different creatures and Iron Age homo sapiens.”
The series has won several awards including the Outstanding Animated Program at the 2021 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards and the Outstanding Achievement for Directing in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production at the 2021 Annie Awards.
