Animal Kingdom Season 5 RELEASE DATE!

The 5th season of the Animal Kingdom was renewed in July 2019. Creators had planned the shooting for the fifth time, but later on, they have to postpone it as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. As in the previous three seasons, season 5 is also scheduled to have 13 shows. No formal release date has yet been confirmed. The May release timetable accompanied all the previous season of the Animal kingdom, 

Season 4 was released in May 2019 and the viewers are scheduled to see season 5 in May 2020, but that didn’t happen.

The production for the season was packed up on March 16, 2020, when the series moved on because of the current pandemic crisis, so the viewers of the show must be patient. However, we may expect that the series will be released in 2021.

Animal Kingdom Season 5 CAST!

Animal Kingdom Season 5 scheduled to consist of 13 episodes, same as seasons 2, 3 and 4. There will be many actors, some of them – Ellen Barkin, Finn Cole, Scott Speedman, Ben Robson, Shawn Hatosy, Jake Weary, etc.

  • Ellen Barkin portrays Janine “Smurf” Cody 
  • Shawn Hatosy portrays Andrew “Pope” Cody 
  • Ben Robson portrays Craig Cody

Animal Kingdom Season 5 PLOT!

The story focuses on a socially impaired family embroiled in severe criminal offences. In season 5 we’ll find more about the family’s crime, so we can also see that the 5th season is going to be a war among gang members.

The episodes of Animal Kingdom Season 5 will include Cody’s loss of life in a power struggle and the preservation of dominance. The story of the show revolves around the Cody Family, who is involved with underworld events that are their day-to-day life with time.

The returning of Ellen Barkin as Smurf is likely in the fifth season. Everyone assumes that Smurf was shot dead by J (Finn Cole), but she is still not out of the show. It’s probably going to come back by flashbacks or as memories. Season-5 is expected to reflect on the past of Smurf and her family.

Animal Kingdom Season 5 Episodes!

Season 5 is expected to have 13 episodes just like seasons 2, 3, and 4.

The series seems quite interesting, and with such a powerful and grasping plot, it will no wonder blow away audience minds. The cast chosen for this is enhancing the aura of the show. The audience is waiting eagerly to binge on. And during such pandemic when people are more into series and movies, this definitely will be worth their time to spend on. Due to the epidemic, the release had been halted, and the production is planning to release it probably in 2021. The genre is quite mind-gobbling and would quickly get hold of the attention of its audience.
