Animal Kingdom Plot and Cast
Animal Kingdom Season 5 concluded on a major cliffhanger, with the police discovering the body of Catherine Blackwell, the wife of the now-deceased Baz. Pope murdered Cath back in Season 1 under orders from Smurf, who feared Cath planned on talking to the feds. Pope’s guilt about killing Cath has been a significant part of his story arc. However, with both Baz and Smurf gone, no one else knows about the murder.
As such, the discovery is sure to elicit new drama and danger. Considering the Codys are Oceanside’s most wanted crime family, the police will likely try using Cath’s murder as the puzzle piece to bring them all down. There is also the issue of declaring a ruler for the kingdom. Since Smurf’s death, J and Deran have grappled with co-leading the family and their criminal escapades as Craig fell back into drug addiction while struggling to provide for Renn and their infant son.
Pam, an old friend of Smurf’s, also showed up in Season 5 with a legal claim to Smurf’s estate, much to the boys’ dismay. With that storyline feeling somewhat unsatisfactory, it’s possible Pam and her family will reappear in Season 6, whether in the present timeline or flashback.
The expecting cast for the upcoming season includes Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Ellen Barkin, Molly Gordon, Carolina Guerra, Amaya Deva Keroles. We should also get to see Spencer Treat Clark, Scott Speedman, Christina Ochoa, Sohvi Rodriguez, Leila George, Dichen Lachman, Jon Beavers, and Rigo Sanchez in supporting roles.
Animal Kingdom Season 6 Release Date
The release date of Animal Kingdom Season 6 has not been revealed yet. Since the fifth season premiered in 2021, the sixth season should release sometime in 2022.
The new season might consist of 13 episodes like the first five seasons. The rest of the details related to Season 6 is expected to be revealed soon.
