‘Animal Kingdom’ Season 3 Trailer: Denis Leary Joins the Cast

TNT’s critically acclaimed dramatic series Animal Kingdom returns in May 2018 for a third season and today the network’s released the full trailer for the new season. The trailer shows Baz (Scott Speedman) isn’t dead…yet…and debuts Denis Leary’s new character, Billy.

TNT’s set a Tuesday, May 29th at 9pm ET/PT premiere date.

The drama is inspired by the 2010 independent film from writer/director David Michod and starring Joel Edgerton, James Frecheville, Sullivan Stapleton, and Guy Pearce. The series stars Ellen Barkin, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Molly Gordon and Carolina Guerra.

The Plot: This summer, the infamous Cody family is back as TNT’s hit drama Animal Kingdom returns for its third season. In last season’s shocking cliffhanger, Baz (Scott Speedman) was shot while on his way to Mexico after framing Smurf (Ellen Barkin) for murder. Season three opens with Smurf 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. Deran’s (Jake Weary) drifter dad Billy (Denis Leary) comes back to make amends, but may have other motives.
