Animal Kingdom Season 5

Was Animal Kingdom cancelled or renewed for season 5? When does it start on TNT? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Animal Kingdom About?

Centers on a Southern California family, whose excessive lifestyle is fueled by their criminal activities.

After a heroin overdose kills his mom, teenager Joshua “J” Cody moves to Southern California to live with his freewheeling relatives. The family’s matriarch is J’s estranged grandmother, Janine “Smurf” Cody, from whom he’s been shielded for years. J soon finds out the reason for the isolation — Smurf and “her boys” make their livings through carefully planned armed robberies and other criminal activities. Prominent perpetrators include Smurf’s three sons: mentally disturbed ex-con Pope, hyperactive drug user Craig, and suspicious Deran. In order to stay alive, J must prove loyal to his beguiling grandmother, who rules with a borderline-incestuous love.

TNT announced that the crime drama will conclude with the just-ordered sixth season. Season five, which stars Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Leila George, Rigo Sanchez and Jon Beavers, will premiere this summer on TNT.

Animal Kingdom has been off the air since its Season 4 finale was broadcast in Aug. 2019. Season 4 marked the farewell of embattled leading lady Ellen Barkin, whose alter ego, Smurf, was killed off in the penultimate episode.
