The second season of Primal is getting ready to debut and with the first season ending on a cliffhanger, it's no surprise that there are plenty of Adult Swim fans counting down the hours until the prehistoric story's return. In a recent interview, the creator of this series, along with Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory, Genndy Tartakovsky dove into which new episodes of the bloody show are his favorite before the latest installments arrive on both Adult Swim and HBO Max.
In a recent interview with Paste, Genndy Tartakosvky dove further into the second season of the bloody, prehistoric epic series, while taking the opportunity to explain which episodes of Primal's upcoming return were his favorite of the lot:
"The second episode ["The Shadow of Fate"] was one of the most exciting story things we've done with a love triangle. I was so happy with it because it's a love triangle with no dialogue in the story. You have the feelings of all these characters, and it's tragic. I was really excited about it. Then Episode 15, "The Primal Theory," don't miss that one. I'm pushing everything in that one. And I think 17 and 18 are pretty incredible, just scale-wise, we get to this next level. Some are more emotional and some are more exciting. We'll see how the audience reacts to it."
The official description for Primal's second season from Adult Swim reads as such:
"Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal follows the tale of Spear (Aaron LaPlante), a caveman at the dawn of evolution, as he forms an unlikely friendship with Fang, a nearly extinct dinosaur. In the second season, Spear and Fang journey to a new world to rescue Mira (Laëtitia Eïdo) from her captors, only to find a place filled with savage brutality."
While Primal's comeback is the next big project for Tartakovsky, the animator is hard at work following signing an exclusive deal with Cartoon Network as he works on a new animated series in Unicorn: Eternal Warriors, along with an upcoming adult animated movie in Fixed.
