Primal Creator Sets Up Major Shake Ups for Season 3

Primal has brought its second season run to quite the shocking end on Adult Swim, and should the series continue with a Season 3, the original creator behind is all is setting the stage for some big shifts as to how it all will go down next time around! After really shocking fans with its masterpiece of a first season, Primal returned to Adult Swim with a second season of episodes this Summer. The end of the second season was probably the most shocking moment of the series' run to date, and for all intents and purposes seemed like the end of it all.

Although Adult Swim has yet to announced whether or not Primal will be continuing with a third season, series creator Genndy Tartakovsky is already brewing with new ideas about where the series could go from here. Because while the end of the second season seemed to be a major conclusion, Tartakovsky wants to go in a completely different direction with a third season following new characters, new stories, and in almost an anthology like presentation for where things could go next.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly about Primal's shocking Season 2 ending, Genndy Tartakovsky explained that he feels that Spear and Fang's story is over. Unless there's some major outcry from fans wanting to see more of their story or perhaps the next generation of characters teased during the finale, Tartakovsky admitted that he wants Primal to almost "become an anthology show, where season 3 would still be called Primal, but with a different subheading." But it would still have the presentation from the first two seasons.

"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," Tartakovsky explained. "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." He continued as it seems like if the series does get picked up for a new season (which it might considering its awards and critical recognition so far), it's going to be much different. 

How would you feel if Primal goes in a completely different direction for Season 3? Do you want to see a new season if it meant no more Spear and Fang?
