After Genndy Tartokovsky brought Samurai Jack to an end with the incredible return to form with Season 5, fans have been waiting to see what would come next from the prolific creator. This was soon revealed to be Primal, a new series coming to Adult Swim set in the Prehistoric Era following an unlikely duo of a caveman and a T-Rex.

It's already a huge hit.
Introducing fans to a bleak world where it's literally eat or be eaten, the first episode sees an unexpected partnership form in the most dire of circumstances. Free of dialogue, but full of bloody action, the first episode has been a smash success if reactions from fans are anything to go by.

Adult Swim describes Primal as such, "Primal centers around a caveman at the dawn of evolution and a dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world."
"I'm About to Cry for a Caveman"
This #Primal series is real tearjerker. I’m 10 minutes in and heard no dialogue whatsoever and yet I feel like I’m about to cry for a caveman.— AC (@acwilder26) October 8, 2019
