Apparently, the current health crisis has taken a toll on the series just like many other expected titles. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming was halted around midway of production on the current batch of episodes.
The network is probably torn between airing some of the episodes that they have and choosing to wait for quarantine directives to be lifted. Whatever option they come up with have its own fair share of pros and cons.
With there being no clear sign as to when season five production for Animal Kingdom can start back up, the only thing fans of the series can do is to wait.
Patience is the only key for this situation unless TNT finds a way to get some episodes done despite current stay-at-home orders and other hindrances.
Plot of the Animal Kingdom series
In this thrilling Australian crime drama, young Joshua “J” Cody is taken in by his extended family after his mother dies of an overdose. This branch of Cody clan is heavily involved in different criminal activities.
The family quickly influenced the teen into this way of life. However, when a cop named Leckie tried to help him escape the family fold, Joshua got a chance to follow a different path.
There is still no detail disclosed on the plot of the fifth season but it has been expected that it will focus on the exposition of the Cody family’s crime racket.
