It’s been a good week for Primal, Adult Swim’s dialogue-free action saga. A few days after the series picked up three Juried Emmys, news has broken that it has been renewed for a second season.
The first five episodes of the first season premiered in October 2019. A second batch of five episodes follows next month, premiering on October 4 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim. There is no announced release date for the second season, which will also consist of ten episodes.
Primal was created by Genndy Tartakovksy, the man behind Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, and the director of the Hotel Transylvania feature trilogy. The series tells the story of a caveman and a dinosaur who, united by a shared trauma, team up to fend for themselves in a lawless primeval world. It is a tour de force of action timing and staging.
