Adult Swim has renewed Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal for a third season.
Season 3 of the Emmy-winning prehistoric fantasy series is "currently in production," according to Adult Swim, with series creator Tartakovsky once again at the helm. A release window for the third season has not yet been announced.
Set within a prehistoric world where early man, dinosaurs, and other creatures co-exist, Primal's first two seasons centered around the relationship between a caveman named Spear and a T-Rex named Fang. The series has been praised for its excellent animation, engrossing violence, and emotional storytelling.
"It’s happening! Primal has become a contagious disease that I don’t ever want to cure," said Tartakovsky. "Every episode flows out like an unstoppable force beyond my control. Prepare yourselves Primal fans for Season 3 is coming!"
According to Adult Swim, Primal is the network's sixth-most-streamed series on Max domestically and its second-most-streamed outside the U.S.
Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Star Wars: Clone Wars, is also working on an R-rated animated feature called Fixed starring Idris Elba as a dog about to be neutered. The creator's most recent series, Unicorn: Warriors Eternal, debuted on Adult Swim in May.
