The crime procedural family drama series premised on the Australian film from 2010 of the Animal Kingdom Season 5. The first season of the show premiered back in 2016 and has been releasing a season each year without a gap until now. Back in July 2019, the show was renewed for the fifth season. However, there is no sign of release date yet.
Animal Kingdom Season Release Status
The show had begun with the production of season 5 but it had to be put on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic. Since the suspension of the production, no new information has been provided to us that suggests the show will be back in 2020.
A 2021 release sound more appropriate, as the production is yet to resume. Expecting the production to resume in the coming months. We might get to watch the fifth season in May next year like it was the case with season 2, 3, and 4. However, that cannot be said for sure, it can still be delayed for as long as late 2021. Moreover, the next season is likely to feature a set of 13 episodes just like the previous seasons.
The premiere of Animal Kingdom Season 5 was not possible due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic. The release seems to be impossible in this year as the world is still combating against the deadly coronavirus. China’s Wuhan-emerged coronavirus and its transmutation into a global pandemic brought the entire entertainment industry to a standstill with an unfathomable financial loss. Majority of the television and movie projects were halted or postponed for indefinite time.
The good news is that the cast and crew had already been back at work for Animal Kingdom Season 5. Some episodes were already filled prior to the global lockdown earlier this year. thus, we can expect
What might happen in the next season?
As of now, the plot for the next season is under wraps. Therefore, we do not have a lot of information on that other than some obvious ones. We are likely to see a war for powers among the Cody family. As the matriarch of the family, Smurf is gone it is quite obvious that the rest of them will fight for her power and position.
Moreover, some family enemies that stayed away till now because of Smurf just might appear now. Even though the character of Ellen Barkin is dead she still might appear in flashbacks and memories. The next season is definitely going to be interesting so, keep waiting for it.
