Spear and Fang continue their journey together with five all-new episodes of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal coming to Showmax’s Adult Swim corner in October.

About Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal

Combining artistry, emotion and flat out action, the series has also been renewed for a second season with 10 episodes.  From the mind of Genndy Tartakovsky, the visionary creator behind the Emmy award-winning series Samurai Jack, comes a new tale that follows a caveman at the dawn of evolution as he forms an unlikely friendship with an almost extinct dinosaur. With suspense, heartbreak, excitement, love, and fear, all without a single word of dialogue, the series is a painting come to life, relying solely on music and graphic imagery to tell the story of two unlikely allies as they navigate through a treacherous world.

After bonding over unfortunate tragedies, they seem to become each other’s only hope of survival against a common enemy.

‘A stunning feat of visual storytelling’

It is said that Primal has an 8.7/10 score on IMDB and a 100% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes, where the critic’s consensus is, “Epic in every sense, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal is a stunning feat of visual storytelling.”

The first five episodes from Primal season 1 premiered on Adult Swim, the adult-oriented programming block offering animated and live-action series for young adults, in April. Now you can catch the remaining five episodes of Primal season 1 on Monday, 5 October 2020, just 24 hours after the US premiere, on the Adult Swim corner on Showmax. And – even better news! – Primal has officially been renewed for a 10-episode second season in 2021.
