What is Animal Kingdom about?

The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua "J" Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody and her right-hand Baz, who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope, the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig, the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran, the troubled, suspicious "baby" of the family.
Based on the 2010 Australian film of the same name, Animal Kingdom is a crime drama series that centers on the Cody family. It is dark, intriguing, and twisted altogether which makes it an engrossing watch, bolstered by the portrayal of Ellen Barkin as Smurf. The crime drama series is currently in its fifth season after first premiering in 2016. After the explosive final episodes of Season 4, Animal Kingdom returns for Season 5 with more grit than ever and most of the original cast returning - Shawn Hatosy as Pope, Ben Robson as Craig, Jake Weary as Deran, and Finn Cole as J.

Animal Kingdom Season 5 Preview

Animal Kingdom Season 5 is finally here. There were plenty of loose ends that needed tying from the previous episodes and the fifth season has just launched to bring closures and resolutions, or has it? Animal Kingdom fans know how the Codys are prone to violence, betrayal,  and generally things going out of control.

They either inflict said savagery or experience it themselves as retribution for their crimes. Still, this criminal family clan is comprised of complex yet universal characters. So what's next for the Codys, and perhaps the long-running question is, who will be at the top of the animal kingdom?

After that major and shocking Season 4 death, the remaining Cody members are still coping and grappling, trying to make the hard decision of who leads the family. Alliances also need to be maintained in order to survive but can they really pull this off without their matriarch?

Even more baffling for the Codys is Smurf leaving the family estate to someone else. So many questions that need answers, the more reason you need to watch Season 5.
