New seasons of “Animal Kingdom” and “Angie Tribeca” will be coming your way in 2018 on TNT and TBS.
Word of the pickups comes from the networks’ time at the summer TV press tour Thursday. TNT has renewed “Animal Kingdom” for a third season, while “Angie Tribeca” will be back for a fourth run on TBS. Both shows have put up decent ratings for the channel.
“Animal Kingdom” is averaging a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.13 million viewers in its initial airings so far this season, on par with Season 1’s 0.4 and 1.27 million. TNT says that across all platforms, the drama averages 4.8 million viewers per episode.
“The Cody family’s drama keeps bringing more and more viewers back for more,” Sarah Aubrey, head of original programming for TNT, says in a statement. “‘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.”
“Angie Tribeca” grew its on-air ratings in its third season, which finished in June. It averaged a 0.3 in adults 18-49 (up a tick from 0.25) and 566,000 viewers for its first run. TBS also announced that Bobby Cannavale, most recently seen on “Master of None,” will join the cast for Season 4.
