“Animal Kingdom ss 6”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the crime drama “Animal Kingdom” will take place on June 19, 2022. It is known that season 6 of the TV show will be the final one and will tell us how the fate of the surviving heroes will turn out.
Smurf’s strange attitude towards her sons puts Joshua on guard. He understands that there are conversations behind his back, but for some time he cannot make out what they are talking about. All this time, the inhabitants of the house argued whether it was possible to trust the newcomer with terrible secrets. After all, robbing banks and jewelry stores is not a joke, and it is better for outsiders not to know about it. As a result, they decide to check the guy.
In the meantime, the plan is being prepared, Joshua himself learns that the dealer knew about the quality of the drugs when he sold the dose to his mother. Indignant, he goes to the dealer and arranges a showdown. Unprepared to harm the person, Joshua leaves. He had one outlet left – this is his friend Nicky, to whom the guy went when it became difficult for him.
Nicky quickly joined her boyfriend’s new family, but Joshua was embarrassed by this fact. He lost his mother to drug addiction, and when he arrived at Janine’s house, he was again drawn into it. In the first days of his stay here, he ran into a stranger, who turned out to be his uncle. Pope had just been released from prison and wanted to surprise the family. But when faced with Joshua, he was surprised himself.
The boy’s mother was Pope’s twin and her death became a grief for the former prisoner. At the funeral, the neighbors asked Joshua to leave the new family, talking about how the mother tried to do everything possible to protect her son from them. She did not have enough strength, because the addictions were stronger. But the boy has already decided: he will live with Janine.
For 5 seasons, everything happened: the children of Smurf quarreled, made peace, built relationships with girls, eliminated the threat from the outside. But even Janine’s cancer couldn’t separate them from each other. Continuing the common cause, they were drowning in problems more and more, but they did everything together. What awaits us in Season 6? Will Joshua reconcile with Pope and who will be the head of the family?
