Five New PRIMAL Episodes Will Drop This October On Adult Swim
After a sporadic viewing schedule for the first six episodes, five new episodes of Genndy Tartakovsky's new animated masterpiece Primal will hit Cartoon Network's Adult Swim this October.
The first footage from Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal series hit Toonado back in May 2019 and since then, animation fans have been treated to 6 episodes. However, the airing of those 6 episodes have been somewhat sporadic, which is why the news that the next 5 episodes will drop all at once on October 4 is cause for celebration.

The first 5 episodes of Primal premiered in October 2019 but the 6th episode didn't air until April 2020. It's currently believed that the episode that aired in April (which aired on April 1 as part of Cartoon Network's April Fool's Day celebration) will be part of the next batch of 5 episodes that will air on October 4. It was previously confirmed that season 1 of Primal would consist of 10 episodes, that would be split into 5-episode increments. Unless the first season's episode count has been increased to 11, expect to see a repeat of Episode 6, ""Plague of Madness" before four new episodes air.
Primal enjoys a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score from critics and a 99% rating from the audience. The show features no dialogue, instead relying on clever animation sequences to progress a show that's incredibly violent while being astonishingly beautiful.
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.
