The Cody crime family finds itself in deeper trouble as the third season of TNT’s “Animal Kingdom” returns. With Smurf (Ellen Barkin) in jail after being framed for murder by Baz (Scott Speedman), she has trusted her grandson J (Finn Cole) with control of the family business.
But the Cody men are divided on control — and have other problems as well, including the return of Billy (Denis Leary), the drifter dad of Deran (Jake Weary), who has his own motives.
Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Molly Gordon and Carolina Guerra also star in “Animal Kingdom,” which returns on Tuesday, May 29, at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. The show averaged 4.1 million viewers across multiple platforms in Season 2.
John Wells is executive producer on the series. “Animal Kingdom” was developed and executive produced by Jonathan Lisco and inspired by the feature film from David Michôd and produced by Liz Watts, who also serve as executive producers on the series.
