Animal Kingdom season 5 came out a while ago on our digital screens and immediately got all the fans hooked to its amazing drama. Jonathan Lisco has created the show, and it is based on the 2010 Australian film of the same name by David Michod. The show gave us actor Ellen Barkin in the lead role of Janine Cody, also known as Smurf. A fifth installment was greenlit by TNT a long time ago, which was released this year on the 11th of July 2021.
