Toonado just received word that Primal would be dropping 5 new episodes on October 4 and we've now learned that Cartoon Network's Adult Swim has renewed the Emmy-winning adult cartoon for another round of 10 episodes in 2021.
The renewal cames just days after it was revealed that the Television Academy had garnished Genndy Tartakovsky's masterpiece with 3 Emmy awards ahead of the official ceremony for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards. In the Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation category, Tartakovsky (storyboard artist) picked up the honor, along with Scott Wills (art director), and Stephen DeStefano (character designer). The latest win brings Tartakovsky's Emmy award total to 4 following contributions to Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and the Powerpuff Girls.
The honorees will pick up their awards at the 2020 Creative Arts Awards ceremony on Thursday, September 17, which will be streamed on the official Emmys website.
You can currently view the first 5 episodes of Primal on HBOMax.
Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.
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.
