TNT has released a trailer for the third season of its “Animal Kingdom” series with Denis Leary joining this year as Deran’s drifter father, Billy, who returns to make amends but has ulterior motives.
Season three opens with Smurf (Ellen Barkin) in jail and her grandson J (Finn Cole) in charge of the family business. The Cody men find themselves increasingly divided as they fight for both control and their independence, but have to come together when outside threats emerge.
The second season reached an average of 4.1 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms and was the only Top 20 cable drama in 2017 to experience year-over-year rating growth.
“Animal Kingdom” returns May 29th.
