In case you haven’t heard the news already, Animal Kingdom season 5 is going to be premiering this summer on TNT! That is awesome, but then you hear the bittersweet news that season 6 is going to be the final season.

We don’t even want to begin thinking about how the drama is going to end after all of these years; the thought of that makes us too sad. Instead, what we want to spend a few moments discussing today is something a little different: How long are we going to be waiting for the end of the road?
Let’s start with a reminder: Season 5 will likely begin airing this summer. (Of course, summer may mean May — that decision falls mostly on the folks at the network.) We’ve heard already that season 6 is going to be filming at some point in the spring, so there’s a chance there could be a shorter wait between seasons than usual. What’s the operative word there? Chance. It’s far from concerned, and there is a chance that TNT could wait until the summer of 2021 to say a fond farewell to the series. The opportunity is just there for a change, provided that season 6 production is able to run smoothly. We wouldn’t mind personally if it were to air next winter — a time when theoretically, a number of viewers could be around.
If nothing else, we can say this with confidence: There’s likely going to be a smaller wait between season 5 and 6 than there was between season 4 and 5. By the time the newest season premieres, it will likely be two years after the season 4 premiere! Let’s hope that some of the show’s viewers remember to come back…
What do you think is going to be coming on Animal Kingdom season 5 when it premieres?
