The hit crime drama Animal Kingdom dropped its Season 5 on October 3, 2021. The series was renewed for a sixth season in January 2021, just ahead of the fifth season’s launch.
Unfortunately, TNT also stated that Season 6 will be the Cody family’s final chapter. Shawn Hatosy, who plays Andrew “Pope” Cody, the oldest of the Cody sons, revealed on Twitter that the writers promised to give viewers a very satisfactory ending. Hopefully, the sixth season will resolve all of the previous season’s cliffhangers.
Season 6 of Animal Kingdom will contain 13 episodes and will be broadcast in the summer of 2022. The first peek at the new season is already out. The official Twitter account of the series teases the first-look video with the caption “Get your FIRST LOOK of #AnimalKingdom season 6 rn. Because five seasons of Cody heists just isn’t enough!”
Pope, Craig, J, and Deran are the main characters in Season 5 as they deal with the aftermath of Smurf’s death. The following is a summary of Season 5 of Animal Kingdom:
“Pope (Hatosy), Craig (Robson), Deran (Weary), and J (Cole) are still dealing with the fallout of Smurf’s death, which includes revenge family members. With their kingdom without a leader, the Codys battle to keep their fragile alliance together and discover who will emerge victoriously. In the meantime, they look for more information on Pamela Johnson, the beneficiary of Smurf’s estate. And back in 1984, a tumultuous 29-year-old Smurf is forging her own path, raising Pope and Julia and taking on dangerous jobs with new and old friends.”
Animal Kingdom Season 6 has yet to be given a release date.
