Fortunately, the future of the dark drama seems pretty bright. The streamer has finally renewed the series for another run. Are you excited about the upcoming installment? If yes, here’s everything you need to know about it.
The popular serial drama debuted back in June 2016 and won all our hearts. Based on 2010’s Australian film, the series revolves around a teenage boy who moves in with his estranged relatives. After the death of his mother, he now has to adjust with his new family, the Codys. However, it is actually a criminal family governed by a matron Smurf.
Animal Kingdom Season 5: Renewal Updates
TNT has been pretty confident about the future of their successful crime drama. Hence, the renewal of Animal Kingdom Season 5 was announced way before Season 4 finale. However, the TV network refused to reveal any other detail with the news back in July 2019. Fans were pretty happy to get the green flag and expressed their delight over social media. The fifth installment is expected to mock a new era for the Codys.
Animal Kingdom Season 5: Official Teaser
The highly-anticipated installment now has an official teaser as well. The television network released the video early, and fans are going crazy. It teases the arrival of a new generation of crime. Whereas now that Smurf is out of the picture, J. Craig, Pope and Deran need to think about their future. The matron was mainly the only one who did the planning. The Codys will now have to start everything from scratch in Animal Kingdom Season 5. On the other hand, they may also struggle to build new contacts as well as a new empire.
What Will Happen Next?
The upcoming installment won’t be easy for the Codys. They will now have to decide whether to include Angela in their business or not. Being well experienced to run such kind of business, they may consider trusting her this time. On the other hand, the Codys may need a few more sets of hands as well. Hence, Frankie, Billy, and Jake may become a part of the business this season.
Infact, Pamela Johnson may also be kept as an option this time. The latest installment can further explore things related to her. Pamela had always been there for Smurfs through thick and thins. However, we mostly saw her through Smurf’s flashbacks. Animal Kingdom Season 5 may turn out to be different for her storyline.

TNT is yet to announce the official release date of Animal Kingdom Season 5. However, the recently released teaser reveals that it is set to premiere in 2020. The series debuted back in June 2016 and continued to telecast in May of consecutive years. Hence, according to the pattern, the fifth installment may return around May-June 2020. Although we may have to wait for a confirmation by the TV network.
The fan following of TNT’s crime drama grew over the years. Viewers now have much more expectations from the showrunners. As of now, the teaser of the show looks pretty promising. Moreover, we hope that the upcoming installment turns out to be equally impressive.
