Genndy Tartakovsky’s Next Series Takes Us to Prehistoric Times

Hook it directly into our veins...

Adult Swim has ordered a brand new animated series from the Samurai Jack and Dexter’s Lab creator, which puts a caveman and dinosaur together.

It’s been a little bit since Cartoon Network/Adult Swim aired the final season of Samurai Jack and Genndy Tartakovsky hasn’t been sitting idle during that time. The creative mind behind the iconic animated series, as well as Dexter’s Laboratory (my favorite), the first Clone Wars series, and Hotel Transylvania, is debuting a new series called Primal later this year.

The half-hour show is slated to debut this Fall (thankfully we won’t have to wait long for it) and puts the focus on a “caveman at the dawn of evolution and a dinosaur on the brink of extinction.” Not a whole lot of info to go on there, but considering the creator and the awesome first image, I’m already sold.

Primal’s series order comes on the heels of orders for Birdgirl (which is a freaking Harvey Birdman spin-off) and a new live-action comedy coming to the Adult Swim block.
