‘Primal’ is Adult Swim’s prehistoric adult animated series, which seems like a colorful vista that has sprung to life. The story, without any dialogues, uses only graphic imagery and background scores to narrate a tale of survival and bloodbath. Packed with suspense, violence, excitement, emotions, and fear, this masterpiece is about two unlikely allies — a caveman and his dinosaur friend — who navigate a treacherous world. The pair develops a close bond due to their tragic histories and band together to fight and survive.
Created by Genndy Tartakovsky (‘Dexter’s Laboratory’, ‘Samurai Jack’), the first iteration of the Emmy-winning series has drawn immense praise for its artistry, animation, pacing, and storytelling. Now for fans who are waiting for updates on ‘Primal’ season 2, we might have some great news in store!
Primal Season 2 Release Date:
‘Primal’ Season 1 premiered on October 7, 2019, on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. It aired its fifth episode on October 11, 2019. The season returned with its sixth episode on October 4, 2020, and finally wrapped up with its 10th episode on November 1, 2020. In August 2020, when Cartoon Network announced that the show was returning with the second half of season 1, it also confirmed that ‘Primal’ has been greenlit for the second season! Here is what the press release says:
“Spear and Fang continue their journey together with five all-new episodes of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, premiering Sunday, October 4th … Combining artistry, emotion, and flat out action, the series has as well been renewed for a second season for an additional 10 episodes.” The press release additionally confirmed that ‘Primal’ season 2 will release sometime in 2021.
Primal Season 2 Characters
Since ‘Primal’ does not feature any dialogues, we do not have any voiceover stars. The primary two characters are Spear and Fang. Spear is a caveman whose family had been killed and devoured by horned theropods. He contemplates suicide but later, decides to survive while coping with his loss. Spear’s vocal effects are provided by Aaron LaPlante. On the other hand, Fang is a female tyrannosaurus whose babies were killed by theropods as well. She eventually develops a bond with Spear over their mutual tragedy.
Spear and Fang will obviously be the center of action in season 2. Alongside them, we will get to see more prehistoric and fantastical species + different tribes of hominins. Season 1 additionally shows glimpses of Spear’s family in flashbacks — something we expect to see in the next edition as well.
Primal Season 2 Plot: What Can it be About?
‘Primal’ follows the perilous journey of a caveman Spear (in the dawn of human evolution) and a female dinosaur Fang (on the verge of extinction) as they struggle to survive in a treacherous landscape. In season 1, we witness the duo as they fight against different beasts – a massive Titanoboa, an elder woolly mammoth, a pack of dromaeosaurs, ape-men, a coven of witches, a crazed sauropod, and a therizinosaur, among others. Season 2 will continue to narrate the multiple quests of Spear and Fang as they encounter several more foes, roaming the violent, primordial world.
