Genndy Tartakovsky has confirmed that Spear and Fang's story is officially over, giving an in-depth interview following Primal's season two finale. This shouldn't come as a surprise considering the events that took place in the latest installment, though it still might be a bitter pill for many fans to swallow. Expanding on the brutal events that transpired, it seems that Tartakovsky is looking to venture forth into an anthology style should Primal return in the future for a season three.
Warning. If you have yet to watch the season two finale of Primal, be forewarned that this article and the interview with Genndy Tartakovsky dive into serious spoiler territory.
The season two finale of Primal ends with Spear dying but having one last tender moment with Mira, as the final moments of the episode reveal that Mira and Spear had a daughter, with Fang and her offspring also surviving the battle against the supernaturally fueled raider. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tartakovsky confirms that should Primal continue, Spear's daughter won't be taking the lead role in the bloody epic:
"I don't want to do this story further. I feel like this season we've done it all, in a way. I want it to almost become an anthology show, where season 3 would still be called Primal, but with a different subheading. Low-dialogue, high-emotion, survival, rawness, visual storytelling: All that stuff, but with different characters. There's more things I want to do with Primal, not necessarily Spear and Fang. Maybe if there's a giant outcry, we'll continue the story with his daughter and Mira and the dinosaurs. I'd have to really think about it."
Previously, Genndy had stated that he is hoping, should Primal continue, that his prehistoric outing will transform into an anthology series, with the stories attempting to hold fast to the brutality, and lack of overall dialogue, that help put Spear and Fang on the map. While a third season hasn't been confirmed by Cartoon Network, Tartakovsky has his hands full with the upcoming series Unicorn, as well as the animated film, Fixed.
