Primal, Genndy Tartakovsky’s most anticipated series, has concluded its 1st season’s run, but who voiced the characters in the Primal cast? There are some voice actors worth mentioning in the ensemble, so let’s check them out. Season 2 of Primal is rumored to premiere this summer on Adult Swim, and Genndy Tartakovsky developed and directed the award-winning violent animated television series Primal.
Tartakovsky is an animation veteran best known for his work on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, and his work was crowned with the Primal cast. Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy are among his other projects, but his most famous work was the epic animated series Samurai Jack. That one follows a samurai who travels through time to confront a deadly evil, and it was liked a lot by the viewers.
However, Primal is as good as the other projects, which tells the story of a caveman and a dinosaur to connect over shared pain and fight together to survive. Spear is the caveman’s name, while Fang is the dinosaur’s name, and the show nicely focuses on the friendship they form. Despite the obstacles, they always manage to find camaraderie in one another as they head into the deadly wilderness.
Now let’s check out the voice actors from the Primal cast.
Aaron LaPlante is an American actor and writer who contributed to the Primal cast with the voice of Spear.
