Animal Kingdom Plot
The plot of the show is about a seventeen-year-old boy, played by the actor Finn Cole, named Joshua. Joshua moves in with his family, the Codys, after the death of his mother. In comparison, Codys is an aberrant household headed by Smurf. Also, Joshua is joining the business. A cop, Leckie, is trying to help Joshua get out of this dirty business. After that, Smurf is shot dead at the end of season four.
Smurf’s death widened several horizons for the show’s production. The character of Smurf upsurged the popularity and ratings pf the show, so filling the Smurf-sized hole in the show will be very difficult.
In addition, it has also been speculated that Joshua’s character will be grown and explored in a different light. Witnessing the evolution of the character will be cool to watch.
Presently, the plot for the next season has not been revealed. Therefore, we do not have a lot of details on the storyline other than some palpable ones. A war for powers among the Cody family is in the likelihood.
