Digital Viewing Has Expanded +73% vs. First Season, While DVR Viewing is Up by +11%

Turner's TNT has renewed its original drama Animal Kingdom for a third season as strong multiplatform viewing helped make the series cable's only Top 20 drama this year to show growth among Adults 18-49 in its second season. Emmy(R) and Tony(R) winner Ellen Barkin, Scott Speedman, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Finn Cole, Molly Gordon and Carolina Guerra star in Animal Kingdom, which is produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. New second-season episodes premiere across TNT platforms Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), with the season finale set for Aug. 29. TNT plans to launch the third season in 2018.

Animal Kingdom is currently averaging 4.8 million viewers per episode across TNT platforms. That figure includes a +73% increase in viewing through TNT's website, mobile apps and connected devices, as well as a +11% lift in DVR viewing. The series ranks as one of basic cable's Top 10 returning dramas among Adults 18-49 for the year-to-date.

"Animal Kingdom has earned its place among a very select group of cable dramas that continue to grow audiences thanks to superior writing and storytelling."

Animal Kingdom is executive-produced by Emmy(R) winner John Wells, Jonathan Lisco, Christopher Chulack and Etan Frankel. Megan Martin, who is also working with Wells on the TNT pilot The Deep Mad Dark, serves as co-executive producer.
