We don’t have to wonder if the Animal Kingdom TV series will be cancelled by TNT this time around. The show’s already been renewed for a sixth and final season. Will it go out in a blaze of glory — with high ratings to match? Stay tuned.
A crime drama, Animal Kingdom stars Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Sohvi Rodriguez, Leila George, and Jon Beavers. The story revolves around the Cody crime family who has now lost its matriarch. In the fifth season, Pope (Hatosy), Craig (Robson), Deran (Weary), and J (Cole) are still dealing with the fallout from the events surrounding Smurf’s death, including family members out for revenge. With their kingdom without a leader, the Codys struggle to maintain their fragile alliance and to see which of them will come out on top. Meanwhile, they search for more information on Pamela Johnson whom Smurf made the beneficiary of her estate. And back in 1984, an increasingly volatile 29-year-old Smurf is forging her own path raising Pope and Julia and leading the charge on dangerous jobs with new and old friends.
