With Smurf (Ellen Barkin) having shuffled off the show’s mortal coil, TNT’s Animal Kingdom is set to return this summer with the fifth season that locates the Codys (Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole) not only seeking to remind the world of who the Codys are also proving that the boys may do just fine running from beneath Smurf’s shadow. But with a 13-episode fifth time and final, sixth time on the horizon, that holds the reigns of power may not be as straightforward as all of this first thought. With Adrian gone following a year that found him having to be about the defense the majority of the year, Deran’s (Weary) done being viewed as the”youngest Cody”- as you are about to see in the subsequent teaser profile.

In TNT’s Animal Kingdom season, Pope (Hatosy), Craig (Robson), Deran (Weary), and J (Cole) is still handling the fallout from the events surrounding Smurf’s death, such as family members out for revenge. With their kingdom with no leader, the Codys struggle to maintain their fragile alliance and to determine which of these will come out on top. Meanwhile, they search for more information on Pamela Johnson that Smurf created the beneficiary of her estate. And back in 1984, an increasingly explosive 29-year-old Smurf is forging her own path raising Pope and Julia and leading the charge on harmful tasks with old and new friends. Take a look at Hatosy’s reminder that the Codys aren’t going anywhere any time soon- and it’s important to wear a mask when you’re at home or in”job”:
