While Animal Kingdom season 5 won’t technically start filming for many more months, the TNT drama is still intent on showing you what could be coming next.
If you look below, you can see the first “teaser” for the upcoming season, one that teases mostly the arrival of a new generation of crime. With Smurf now out of the picture, it’s up to Pope, Deran, Craig, and J to figure out if they want to move forward … and how they want to move forward. Smurf was the person facilitating a lot of the plans. Without her around, they’re all left in the wind to figure out how to build new contacts and create an empire almost from scratch. They have experience, but being a successful crime family is about so much more than that. You have to know where to be and how to get there.
The first order of business within season 5 is probably going to be trying to determine how much you want to include Angela — she’s got experience within this realm, and maybe after the events of the finale, they will consider trusting her. From there, you have to look at some other people on the periphery. Jake, Billy, and Frankie are all around to some degree, so do you decide to use any of them? Or, do you decide to shove them all away?
Then, there is the mystery of Pam Johnson. This is the woman who Smurf left most of her money to, and we know her as someone from many years back in her past. We still think that there is something more that could have happened in the past beyond what we know … and it’s something that could better inform some of the specific decisions that were made here in the first place.
While we are concerned about whether or not Animal Kingdom will be the same without Smurf, rest assured of this: We’re still intrigued to see where the story goes.
