Animal Kingdom Season 5 will decide the fate of Joshua.

A little rewind!

Animal Kingdom is an American serial crime drama developed by Jonathan Lisco. It is based on a 2010 Australian movie ‘Animal Kingdom.’ The first season premiered in 2016. Since then, the show has a schedule of telecasting the consecutive seasons after a year. TNT renewed the show for a fifth season in July 2019. The show portrays a psychotic family with family values. It shows every character’s battles while taking us along. The show had a viewership of around 5.5 million across all platforms.

Animal Kingdom is a story revolving around Joshua, who after the death of his mother, moves in with his relatives, the Codys. The Codys are a criminal family governed by matriarch Smurf. Joshua too gets along with them and embarks with them on not-so ethical adventures. The consensus of the show is ‘Bolstered by Ellen Barkin‘s acting prowess, Animal Kingdom is a darkly intriguing, although occasionally predictable, twisted family drama.’
