Animal Kingdom is making a small casting change. Rigo Sanchez, who appeared on the series during season four as a recurring member, will be a regular member of the cast for season five.
“In season 4, Sanchez’s Manny was the leader of a group of career criminals. He’s shrewd, ruthless, the brains of the operation and the “parent” of the crew. He appeared in 10 episodes. In season 5, the dynamics between Janine, Manny (Sanchez), and Jake (Jon Beavers) are shifting as the crew comes back together and Janine decides she wants to operate out of a little town called Oceanside.”
An exact premiere date for Animal Kingdom season five has not yet been revealed. The series will air on the network later this year.
