Animal Kingdom centers on 17-year-old Josh "J" Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. It isn't long before Josh is pulled into the family's life of indulgence and excess, but he soon discovers that it's all being funded by criminal activities. Joining the family comes with more danger and excitement than he might be ready to handle.
TNT announced today that Animal Kingdom has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes midway through the drama's sophomore run, where it has continued to grow its fanbase while ranking as one of the Top 10 returning dramas on basic cable in the adults 18-49 demographic.
The series follows a teenager who moves in with his tough, rule-breaking relatives in Southern California after his mom dies from a heroin overdose. When the family wants to bring him into the fold, he is not necessarily ready for the trouble that comes along with it.
Look for Season 4 of Animal Kingdom in 2018.
