Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal Season 3 Officially Hits Adult Swim

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal Season 3 Officially Hits Adult Swim

The Season 2 finale of “Primal” saw the resilient and tough caveman known as Spear meet his end while trying to protect Fang, his children, and his new tribe. After defeating the vengeful leader who had been resurrected as a fearsome fire giant, Spear was fatally burned and he couldn’t continue. But before life could leave Spear’s body, the most advanced human woman called Mira consummated the love that lingered between them. Finally, an epilogue showed up in time to show us that Mira has a teenage daughter, and she was seen riding on the back of one of Fang’s children.

Along with the announcement of “Primal” season 3, this image from the season 2 finale seems to confirm that the third season will pick up where we left off:

This is somewhat surprising, because even though the epilogue clearly establishes the potential for “Primal” to continue following Spear and Mira’s daughter, Tartakovsky previously talked about continuing “Primal” as an anthology series that follows completely different characters. It feels like a happy medium, one that gives us new characters to research but continues the legacy of characters from the first two seasons. As Michael Ouweleen, President of Adult Swim, said in a statement:

“Most shows would struggle to continue after the death of the main character, but that’s not most shows. Leave it to Genndy and his crew to keep us all hooked as ‘Primal’ continues its adventure.”

Adult Swim certainly trusts Tartakovsky as much as we do, and Sam Register, chairman of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, also agrees. He added:

“When Genndy says he’s not done with ‘Primal’, our only job is to do whatever we can to support that vision and give him the opportunity to tell more amazing and imaginative stories. I can’t wait. to see where it takes us next.”

At this time, we don’t know when the third season of “Primal” will hit Adult Swim, but hopefully we’ll see it in 2024.
