At present, the last four seasons of the sitcom are being aired on leading OTT platforms including Amazon Prime and Netflix but there is no solid news about the release of the 5th season which was said to be delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Each of the previous seasons has 13 episodes each and has garnered a lot of appreciation from the viewers as well as the critics. 


The series follows the life of 17-year-old Joshua ‘J’ Cody who moves in with his estranged family headed by his grandmother Janine “Smurf” Cody.

The 5th season of the Animal Kingdom will mainly concentrate on the black hat crimes of the exasperated Cody family and their ghastly criminal practices. In this season, most of the Cody’s are expected to lose their lives including their tough matriarch Janine “Smurf” Cody. This season is all about war or rather a race to the top to maintain their supremacy.

The 5th season of this amazing show was expected to hit the screens in May 2020 but was delayed because of the global Covid-19 pandemic. The audiences were pretty much excited for this season as this season was renewed in 2018 only but the universe had other plans.

But the cast of this show has definitely taken to their social media handles to give us some insight regarding the shooting schedule of the show and some sneak peeks of their sets. 

At the moment, all we can do is keep an eye on the social media handles of the star cast and wait patiently for the official confirmation news from the makers.
