The sixth and final season of ‘Animal Kingdom’ has finally arrived and the first three episodes have been really intriguing. Fans were really excited to see their favorite characters back on screen and how they move ahead in their lives. In the first episode, we saw the Cody boys – Pope (Shawn Hatosy), Deran (Jake Weary), Josh (Finn Cole), and Craig (Ben Robson) – taking revenge on Gia and burning her shop down.

Meanwhile, the next two episodes focused more on Pope finally building something on his lot while Josh is planning to have a meeting with all family members regarding financial matters. In the second episode, we saw Josh telling his siblings and uncle that they might need a new attorney. He sets up a meeting with a new law firm and there we get introduced to a new character named Penny, an assistant who does all the work before a client is given an attorney.
