To be honest, I kind of entirely forgot about “Animal Kingdom,” and in the era of #peaktv, keeping a show on the cultural radar is more difficult than ever. That being said, instead of watching things en masse like they did back in the day of traditional television, audiences are more niche driven, so maybe this show has a following I just don’t even know about.

At any rate, the numbers were sufficient enough that TNT has renewed “Animal Kingdom” for season two. Ellen Barkin returns to lead the criminal family at the heart of the drama, but this time around, it looks like blood ties are being undone. However, the matriarch isn’t going to lose control of her empire without a fight.

“Animal Kingdom” season two debuts on May 30th. [EW]
