Animal Kingdom Season 5, Release Date, Cast, Storyline, And More!


The Animal Kingdom is one of the most anticipated series of this year, fans thought that we will see the show released in May-June like all the previous seasons however that didn’t happen. So when can we see the show? Let’s find out.

The show is based on the 2010 movie with the same name which was directed by David Michôd, who is an executive producer for the series, along with Liz Watts who also produced the movie. The story follows a 17-year boy who goes to live with his relatives the Codys, a criminal family clan governed by matriarch Smurf after the death of his mother. The show was 1st aired on TNT on June 14, 2016, and has aired 4 seasons as of yet with the 4th coming on May 28, 2019. The show was renewed for a 5th season in July 2019 and expected to air this year in May.

Release Date

The show was originally supposed to release this year in May however, due to the ongoing Pandemic the release was delayed. However, it looks like most of the production has been completed and not much is left so we can expect the season to arrive by the end of 2020.

We will be seeing most of the main cast return for this season with Shawn Hatosy as Andrew Cody, Ben Robson as Craig Cody, Jake Weary as Deran Cody, and Finn Cole as Joshua “J” Cody. It seems like we won’t be seeing Ellen Barkin as Janine “Smurf” Cody in the main cast as she was shot dead last season however we may see her some of the scenes.


After the death of matriarch in the last season we might see a war of succession this season with family members turning against each other for the throne. Also, we may see the entry of others and people taking advantage of the internal feud within the family. We will also find out why Smurf left most of her fortune to Pam. We will have to wait for the season’s release to find out.

Until then, stay tuned to know more.
