All 4 has added a new animated series to its Adult Swim collection, as they announce Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal will premiere on the Channel 4 streaming service from 17th January 2020.

Created and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (‘Dexter’s Laboratory’, ‘Samurai Jack’, ‘Star Wars: Clone Wars’), the stunning and epic series follows the adventures of a caveman at the dawn of evolution and a T-Rex on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.

Dramatically illustrated and with no dialogue, the show has been described as ‘”an essential high-emotion thrill ride” by Entertainment Weekly and “a spare storytelling experiment that plays like nothing else in the current landscape” by the Hollywood Reporter.

The first five episodes of the critically praised animation drop on All 4 on Friday 17th January, with the second half of the series expected to be released later in 2020.

“We have curated a rich collection of animation on All 4 and, with the help of our partners Adult Swim, are proud to bring Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal exclusively to the UK,” commented Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor of All 4. “US audiences and critics loved it, so I can’t wait for UK viewers to see just how brilliant it is.”

Channel 4’s partnership with Adult Swim sees other animated content such as ‘Mr. Pickles’ and ‘Samurai Jack’ available to stream for free on the All 4 platform.

All 4 is Channel 4’s award-winning streaming service, home to original and exclusive shows including, US acquisitions; ER, Community and 90210; featured channels, such as VICE, Adult Swim and Channel 4’s world drama strand, Walter Presents; hundreds of box sets of iconic Channel 4 series; a curated selection of films recently shown on Channel 4 and Film4; as well as live streams and catch up from the broadcast channels.

All 4 is available on a wide range of owned-and-operated platforms including web, mobile (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), console (Xbox, PlayStation) and big screen (YouView, FreeSat, Freeview Play, Samsung, Amazon Fire TV, Now TV). A syndicated version is also available via Sky and Virgin Media.
