animal kingdom is over, yeah But is it over and done with? When the dust settled on the series finale of the TNT drama (recapitulated here in full), a whole host of fans have been pining for a spin-off that will see Jake Weary’s Deran backfire on the treacherous nephew J (Finn Cole). Could we actually get one?
“I didn’t hear anything,” showrunner Daniele Nathanson tells TVLine. “These decisions are made above me. But I think the ending should feel like an ending.”
And so did the aptly titled “FUBAR,” which involved both of Deran’s brothers, not to mention Penny, ending up dead and Smurf’s house bursting into flames. When writing the episode, Nathanson’s priority, she says, was to make sure “we’re landing the emotional ending to the story” rather than pitching a possible next chapter.
Still there is Business that has remained unfinished. Viewers would like to see if and how Deran keeps his promise to a dying Craig to care for his fiancee and son. (Nathanson shares her thoughts on the matter here.) Audiences are also keen to find out if Deran is able to track down J and exact revenge for the epic ambush that stole a fortune from him and his siblings has killed.
“Of course, you can always want to follow people,” Nathanson admits. But “I don’t know how much longer you could do this. That would be a different story.”
