Like several other shows, the production of Animal Kingdom had stopped in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. As the epidemic does not seem to stop and only worsens day by day, nothing can be said about the production’s resumption.

When asked the officials about the launch date, they said they are now planning a launch in late 2020 or early 2021. However, it cannot be confirmed and depends on the situation of the pandemic. The faster it heals, the sooner we will have season five.
