Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season of Animal Kingdom.
Animal Kingdom Season 5 Release Date: When will it air?
The fifth season of Animal Kingdom was renewed in July 2019. Creators had already scheduled the filming of the fifth season but were compelled to postpone it due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Like the previous three seasons, season-5 is also expected to comprise 13 episodes. No official release date has been announced yet. Given the unfavorable conditions, we cannot expect the fifth season to release anytime soon in 2020.
Animal Kingdom Season 5 Cast: Who is in the cast of the new season?
We are expecting to see Shawn Hatosy as Andrew Cody or Pope, Ben Robson as Craig Cody, Jake Weary as Deran Cody, Finn Cole as Joshua Cody or J, Rigo Sanchez as Manny, and Scott Speedman as Barry in the fifth season.
Ellen Barkin who plays the role of Smurf was shot dead by J (Finn Cole), but we are expecting her to return in the new season.
Animal Kingdom Season 5 Plot: What is expected to happen next?
This show revolves around a dysfunctional family, who is involved in a lot of crime and drama. The plot of the fifth season is still under wraps. We are expecting that a war may happen among the gang members to acquire power in the fifth season. Smurf was killed in the previous season. It is expected that she will somehow return as she is one of the lead characters of the show. Season-5 would probably focus on Smurf’s past and her family.
