What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the TNT cable channel, Animal Kingdom stars Ellen Barkin, Scott Speedman, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, and Molly Gordon. In season two, the recurring cast includes Alex Meraz, Jennifer Landon, and Tembi Locke. A television adaption of the 2010 Australian feature film, the story centers on Joshua “J” Cody (Cole). After his mom dies from a heroin overdose, J moves in with his estranged grandmother — Janine “Smurf” Cody (Barkin) — and her unruly clan of criminals. The second season opens with the Codys up to no good. When their heist fails to proceed as planned, it shakes up the family dynamics. As a threat from Smurf’s past emerges, they must decide whether to break away, or rally to her side.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Animal Kingdom averaged a 0.38 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.17 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 12% and down by 8%, respectively. Learn how Animal Kingdom stacks up against other TNT TV shows.
The second season debut was down slightly in comparison to its series premiere and the ratings have dipped. However, most TV shows are way down when it comes to live ratings. For this reason, I suspect that TNT will renew Animal Kingdom for a third season. Things can change though and I’ll keep a hungry eye on the ratings and update this page as needed.
