We've got a renewal for the crazypants trainwreck!

TNT's Animal Kingdom, TBS' Wrecked and Angie Tribeca Get Renewed

Quote

Animal Kingdom has signaled the new tone for TNT dramas and is moving the network in the direction we hoped it would,” original programming EVP Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “I’m confident that our strategy of working with high-caliber talent and then getting out of their way will continue to pay off.”

Excited for a return date.

I guess that's the day for premieres with shows with Kingdom in the name.  'Kingdom' is also returning that day. Kingdom and Animal Kingdom having season premieres on same night.

During commercial time the network mentioned that there  are 2 more shows left. The way things seem to be  heading, it looks like the writers are getting close to end of the show. Daren's 'friend' leaving, Pope's confession to Emily, Baz admitting to Smurf, and ending his father-son relationship, Smurf selling jewelry and making J "power of attorney', and lets not forget Lena keeps asking is Mommy dead? Personally, I don't see how much of a story line is left, that could keep one's interest.

Well the show has already been renewed for a season 3.  It's not like Smurf can't manipulate everyone from prison.  Gang bangers have done that in real life.  She can do one big F-U which screws everyone over and gets Baz blamed and the boys back on her side.  It's possible J screws everyone over and his "angry all the time" plan comes to fruition.  

There are plenty more stories.

I see they've clarified he's only doing one episode of Grey's. But I guess he's still leaving AK. I don't love his storyline, so I wouldn't mind him moving on, but it is surprising to me to leave a steady gig. Wonder if he didn't really gel with the cast.

Who’s he going to be? Dr. McBritish?

He's definitely leaving Animal Kingdom, Ellen Pompeo from Grey's Anatomy confirmed that he was no longer doing AK in her podcast this morning.  I didn't love his character [Baz], but I really will miss Scott Speedman.  It won't be the same without him.

So Shawn Hatosy tweeted that Denis was joining the cast and the first thing I thought was "I wonder if he's playing Deran's dad" and sure enough, he is!

I am really glad about this.  Animal Kingdom has its flaws but it is a fun show.   I am considering starting up with Claws.  I should like the show but....I don’t know.  Maybe I’ll give it another go.

Me too as far as AK goes. I've tried Claws three separate times and I just can't get into it. That's fine, I'm good to go with AK.

‘Animal Kingdom’: Jon Beavers & Grant Harvey To Recur In Season 4

Quote

Jon Beavers (The Long Road Home) and Grant Harvey (The Crossing) are set for recurring roles on the upcoming fourth season of TNT’s flagship drama series Animal Kingdom.

Beavers and Harvey play Jake and Colin, respectively, part of a crew living off the grid, committing armed robberies up and down the California coast. Jake is a good-natured career criminal. His laid back demeanor is in stark contrast to the violent Colin, an emotionally damaged vet.

So I follow an Animal Kingdom FB group and Ellen is all over Twitter making vague references to getting pushed out of the show.  This is just one, but there's tons more.😡

Interesting, it's still going on. She's been doing that since the start of the season, when the guys did that promo without her.

Not sure if the spoiler tags are needed but found this too:

Most of us, including me, said this was just a crazy fan who didn't know what she was talking about when she posted this. I'm the first to step up and own it when I'm wrong, and it appears I was. This was posted over two weeks ago from Bernadette Roche:

"Ellen didn’t decide to leave. She was written out. My guess is that the Producer John Wells , who is know to be a sexist , ageist asshole, thought wanted a younger audience , not truly realizing how much we love Smurf.

Ellen loved this part and was broken hearted.

Also, she’s quite vocal on Twitter and I don’t think John Wells knows how to comment on things Ellen says."

Spoiler

I was always on the "they can't write her out, She is the show" team, but it looks like she really will be gone.

I was watching Gladiator for the umpteenth time and realized that the kid who played Lucius looked familiar.  He was played by Spencer Treat Clark (Adrian).

Very happy about the renewal too. It's such a consistently good show with crazy,interesting storylines(though I still am not a fan of this year's young Smurf storyline) I am a couple eps behind but still quite enjoying the show.

I recall the last season was set for the Month of May 2020...Just wondering if anyone knows that it has been completed or did this caronavirus stopped it?

I follow Ben Robson (Craig) on Instagram and he responded to someone saying they only finished about half the season. Depending on when they can get back to work, the season will most likely be delayed. Like a lot of other shows unfortunately 😢

I came here today June 20th, 2020 expecting to see some info on Season 5, and saw nothing. Now they must have done some filming for the months that followed season 4, well into Feb of this year, before coronavirus hit us. Does anyone know what the status is or  where to get the info about this?
