In this post, we will give all the latest updates of the upcoming season to you, i.e., season 5 of Animal Kingdom.

Animal Kingdom Season 5: When is going to release?

Season 5 for the show got its renewal last year in July. And the production and shooting for the fifth season were started immediately. Due to its increasing demand, the makers decided to renew it for a new season, even before the completion of the previous one. The renewal of season 5 was done just after the launch of season 4. The news of renewal was shared through Twitter.

But since March 2024, the production is at a pause due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The global lockdown is adversely affecting the whole entertainment industry. Many shows, movies, and even music albums are at pausing, causing a delay in their release.

If everything goes right, we can expect it to release by the end of 2024 or sometime in early 2024. However, in case of any official announcement, we will update you all.

What is the plot of the show?

The story of the Animal Kingdom revolves around a boy Joshua. After the death of his mother due to drug overdose, Joshua is taken by his foster family cum relatives. He later takes the name “J” Cody upon his foster family. This bunch of his foster family partakes in various kinds of criminal activities.

J is quickly influenced and adopts the way of life of the Cody family. However, Leckie, a cop helps J to escape himself from this family criminal business. This gives Joshua a chance to follow a different path of his choice.

Hence we can expect that season 5 might deal with J’s new journey.

The previous season, as well as the upcoming season, is available on Amazon Prime and Netflix.
