Adult Swim released a teaser today for Primal, a new series from Samurai Jack and Dexter’s Laboratory creator Genndy Tartakovsky.

The half-hour series, produced by France’s Studio La Cachette, debuts this fall. Its main characters are a caveman at the dawn of evolution and a dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.

Tartakovsky, 49, last worked with Adult Swim on Samurai Jack, which was revived for its final season in 2017.

In recent years, Tartakovsky has spent much of his time at Sony Pictures Animation, where he directed the first three films in the Hotel Transylvania franchise. The three films have grossed $1.36 billion globally.

Last year, Sony Pictures Animation announced that Tartakovsky would direct two new animated features for the studio — the R-rated comedy Fixed and the adventure film Black Knight. Tartakovsky said at the time that he was “going to do something unique and different, and push animation to the next level.” Nothing further has been revealed about those projects since the initial announcement.
