Tv Season Info

When a heist goes wrong at the start of Season 2 of the drama series, the boys blame Smurf (Ellen Barkin) and take control of the crew. As they try to figure out the new power structure, they decide to take on smaller jobs to keep afloat. Everyone in the Cody family also has personal issues to deal with: Baz (Scott Speedman) is struggling with being a single parent, Pope (Shawn Hatosy) takes on more of a leader role and puts himself at odds with Smurf, Craig (Ben Robson) dates J's (Finn Cole) ex, and Deran (Jake Weary) decides he wants to own a dive bar. When each family member pulls in a different direction, the resulting tension threatens to tear the family, and the business, apart.

Critic Reviews for Animal Kingdom: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It's a lurid, overheated drama, for sure, but I never miss an hour. The acting is BIG.

Although the dramatic thrust of Animal Kingdom's second season could have been handled with a little more patience and grace, the premiere still served as an exciting way to push the action and advance the story forward.

When your characters are all addicts with disordered personalities, you have a fundamental narrative problem-and I think that's what I ran up against with Animal Kingdom. Sociopaths and narcissists do not change. Like, ever. They can't.

Even with all of the lies and cheating and occasional murder, there's still something serene about watching Craig count money while having a beer on the beach with his brothers.

Smurf has got even more secrets than we thought. Who's Javier and why is she paying for Manny's care? And why did Manny have all those audio tapes? I'm looking forward to find out where that story leads.
