Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal season 3 is happening!

Adult Swim announced today that production has officially begun on season 3 of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal.

Adult Swim has announced that production is currently underway on season 3 of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal. Bring it on!

The animated series is set in a prehistoric era in which dinosaurs, hominids, and other creatures coexist. The first two seasons follow Spear, a caveman, and Fang, a Tyrannosaurus rex, as they each lose their families and decide to join forces. The series features minimal dialogue throughout, but with plenty of bloody, brutal, action. “It’s happening!” Genndy Tartakovsky said in a statement. “‘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 second season set the stage for the next era of the story, with Spear’s daughter seen riding on the back of one of Fang’s offspring. It stands to reason that Primal season 3 will continue this story.

Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, said: “When Genndy says he is not finished with ‘Primal,’ our only job is to do everything possible to support that vision and give him the opportunity to tell more incredible and imaginative stories. I can’t wait to see where he takes us next.” Michael Ouweleen, President of Adult Swim, added, “Most shows would have a hard time continuing after the main character is killed off, but this isn’t most shows. Leave it to Genndy and team to keep us all in suspense as ‘Primal’ continues its adventure.

Primal isn’t the only project Genndy Tartakovsky is working on at the moment. He’s also in the midst of production on Fixed, an animated R-rated comedy which revolves around Bull, “an average dog who discovers he’s going to be neutered in the morning. As the gravity of this life-altering event sets in, Bull realizes he needs one last adventure with his pack of best friends as these are the last 24 hours with his balls.” The project recently announced its main voice cast, which includes Adam Devine, Idris Elba, and Kathryn Hahn.
