Animal Kingdom

All the canceled TV shows of 2021 14

Network: TNT

No. of Seasons: 6

TNT renewed Animal Kingdom for a sixth and final season last January ahead of the show’s season 5 premiere this summer. The crime drama is a consistent rating performer for the network, so the show’s cancellation is likely a result of a creative decision made by the producers of the series. To complement the WarnerMedia network’s sports slate, TNT has also been shifting its programming focus to unscripted fare as of late, so this might also be one of the factors that led to Animal Kingdom’s cancellation.

Based on the 2010 Australian film of the same name, Animal Kingdom follows a Southern California family, whose excessive lifestyle is fueled by their criminal activities. The Jonathan Lisco-developed series stars Ellen Barkin, Leila George, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Rigo Sanchez, and Jon Beavers.
