Animal Kingdom Season 7 Release Date

I don’t want to be the one to disclose this, but friends, there will be no season 7 for the show. Yes, you heard it right. The creators gave us the good news when they announced that season 6 would come for the show. But they also shared the bad news that season 6 will be the finale. Season 6 premiered on June 19, 2022. Before moving further, let’s discuss when the previous seasons were aired.

Animal Kingdom broadcast its first season from June 14, 2016, to August 9, 2016, its second season from May 30, 2017, to August 29, 2017, and its third season from May 29, 2018, to August 21, 2018. Season 4 aired from May 28 to August 20, 2018, and Season 5 aired from July 11 to October 3, 2021.

Looking at previous seasons’ release dates, it’s clear that the show debuted in the middle of the year, and Animal Kingdom’s sixth season also premiered with back-to-back episodes on TNT on June 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Why Was Animal Kingdom Season 7 Canceled?

Viewers looking forward to the series’ impending seventh season may be startled. According to the creators, Season 6 will be the series’ final season, and there will be no further seasons. According to the main character, Season 6 will end more pleasantly. Because the show’s creator and lead cast have stated that season 6 will be the final season, viewers have little choice but to hope for Animal Kingdom season 7.

As I mentioned, you can never predict the ending of Animal Kingdom. The sixth season consisted of 13 episodes, and the finale e[episode knocked us out. There isn’t a single mistake anyone would have pointed out. There’s only one thing that is bothering me, why not season 7? But that’s good too, and the story ended perfectly.

You should know that the show did not end because it was not liked and wasn’t giving back to the creators; it ended because the show ran its course. The show directors mentioned that they are not working on season 7 as the season 6 ending seems just so natural that they did not want to mess that up. They also said, if they had created season 7, fans would not be that happy, as it could not have been as great as season 6.

Animal Kingdom Season 6 Story

The Cody brothers learn they can’t avoid their past in the final season of TNT’s adrenaline-fueled family crime thriller. A cold case inquiry kicks off a chain of events that puts the entire family at risk as their enterprise grows. Six seasons of vengeance, betrayal and a confrontation with long-forgotten violence culminate in an explosive denouement. Here I am mentioning what happened at the final of season 6, so if you haven’t watched, please skip the part (I ain’t a spoiler, man).

The 13th and the finale episode of the sixth season are titled ‘Fubar.’ The final episode means the escape episode. The final season showed the escaping plan of the Cody Boys. It’s time for them to do the prison break, which we have wanted from them for so long. Cody Boys has surely made a massive plan to do the prison break.
