Animal Kingdom Season 5 to Wrap Up the TNT Series

Revenge, betrayal, and a reckoning with long forgotten violence leads to an explosive conclusion six seasons in the making.

Season five of the adrenaline-fueled family crime drama featured Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Leila George, Rigo Sanchez and Jon Beavers.

A consistent ratings success, Animal Kingdom reached 27 million viewers in season four across all platforms, defying trends with the premiere retaining its audience from the previous season’s average.

The series also ranked among 2019’s top 10 cable dramas (P18-49, L+7, ad-supported cable).

In the fourth season, Smurf (Ellen Barkin) was back on top reminding her boys who’s boss no matter whom she hurts. Trapped with Smurf and becoming increasingly unhinged, Pope (Hatosy) found new and dangerous ways to deal with his anger.

J (Cole) continued to scheme about how to take over the family business, Craig (Robson) plotted one of their most difficult heists and Deran (Weary) was worried about his future with Adrian (Spencer Treat Clark).

Outsiders moved in to threaten the Cody’s fragile peace, including Angela (Emily Deschanel), the former best friend of J’s deceased mother and a recovering junkie, who tried to snake her way back into the family’s good graces.

In Season 5, Pope, Craig, Deran and J 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.

Animal Kingdom is produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Emmy winner John Wells, Daniele Nathanson and Erin Jontow serve as executive producers on the series.

Animal Kingdom was developed for television by Jonathan Lisco and inspired by the award-winning Australian feature film written & directed by David Michôd and produced by Liz Watts, who also serve as executive producers on the series.

I love this show. I love how gritty, edgy and dark it is. I especially like that everyone is not cookie cutter perfect or politically correct. Although I think that the action sequences are over the top and unrealistic that is what you watch television for “entertainment”. Life is always throwing obstacles in their paths and they figure out how to roll with it. Although the mother is obviously toxic and unhealthy the entire dynamic between the family members keeps the viewer wondering who is the most dangerous and who is the good guy. You are never quite sure how far they will go. Absolutely adore this show and hope it continues for several more seasons. Can not wait for season 6 to get here!

Enjoyed the show and the plot twists. Would like to see the show and characters in the final season end in a befitting conclusion in the style and spirit of the past seasons. Looking forward to a great story-line ending. Great acting and the writers are fantastic.
