Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the drama series opens shortly after the end of the previous season, when Baz (Scott Speedman) was shot. After his death, the family tries to find out who's responsible, to no avail. Two months later, they're all trying to move on and live their life: Craig (Ben Robson) and Renn (Christina Ochoa) are together in Mexico, Deran (Jake Weary) has been running with his own crew, Pope (Shawn Hatosy) is busy with raising Lena (Aamya Deva Keroles), J (Finn Cole) is trying to run Smurf's (Ellen Barkin) business, and Smurf herself is trying to make the most out of her imprisonment. The Codys, however, can't catch a breath, and they soon find themselves in even more trouble.

It's freakin' terrific - dark, funny, exciting, smartly written and beautifully acted.

Intriguingly paced and stocked with cast members both gorgeous and magnetic.

Animal Kingdom has proven to be one of the best shows of the summer, and I'm excited to share my Tuesday nights with the Cody family.

May 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The value of opening a season with the death of a major character is not lost on Animal Kingdom, and 'The Killing' very nearly comes away with an episode that was as impactful as the creators intended it to be.

    This show is AMAZING! I was hooked on the the first episode and binge watched all 3 seasons in about a week and a half!! It will hook you in too!! You must watch!

    Animal Kingdom in its third season begins to lose some of its steam it compiled through Ellen Barkin's incredible performance. The acting is still superb, but the plotline needs to evolve and get better if the series wants to continue.

    Great addictive show keeps you going without getting bored, even the story unfolds slow at times. Acting is great, some complains about flaws but they seam to be intentional since nearly all characters have a bad past since childhood and that can produce exactly these characters. Well observed and written. Has some flair of Kingdom (Boxing Drama) mixed with some part of Son's of Anarchy core characters but overall it's mainly on it's own ground. Hope it's going for many more seasons.

    This show is incredible, and this season was a thrill ride! Storyline was intense and engaging, the addition of Dennis Leary was a nice touch, and the characters evolution from season 1 has been fun to watch.

SHE'S dumb!! not street smart at all.. gonna get them all killed with her big drunk mouth.. . like the new latina girl.. pope and craig add to the male sexiness of the show... love this show but hate Darren's new style...
