Virtuous Gemstones— a dark comedy whose second season aired on HBO this month — is the brainchild of Danny McBride, who also stars as second-generation Jesse (along with his sister Judy, played by Edi Patterson, and his younger brother Kelvin, played by Adam DeVine) of the Gemstones, a world-famous and ultra-rich family thanks to the multi-million dollar global empire of televangelists and mega-churches founded by their father Eli (John Goodman ). They travel in motorcades of gleaming white G-wagons and Range Rovers, live in mansions in an amusement park-sized resort with a golf course, shooting range and real park of attractions, and will do whatever it takes to protect their holy enterprise, without any regard for either law or scruples.
Development stopped, the multi-Emmy cult hit that aired from 2003 to 2006 on Fox and then had a two-season revival on Netflix (in 2013 and 2018), is a perennial classic and one of the funniest and funniest shows the most witty ones ever made. percent. The sitcom centers on the lives of the Bluths, a Newport Beach estate family made up of spoiled, materialistic, manipulative, and selfish individuals.

Animal Kingdom replaces the patriarchal structures of most dynastic shows with a badass matriarch, who in this case is the formidable Ellen Barkin. There’s a sixth and final season of the TNT show underway, set to air at some point this year, which means there’s still time to catch up on the drama. Barkin plays Janine “Smurf” Cody, who runs a Southern California criminal enterprise with her four sons. When grandson Joshua (played by Finn Cole, who also plays Michael in Peaky Blinders) moves in after his mother’s death, he’s about to take a crash course in the violent family business and all the complicated dynamics that go along with it.
Monarch, which was originally slated to air on Fox later this month before the network moved it to its fall 2022 slate, citing Omicron issues, looks a bit like Nashville-meets-Empire. Susanna Sarandon and Trace Adkins are Dottie and Albie Roman, the matriarch and patriarch of country music’s first family. Before long, their legacy will be threatened by secrets, lies and, what else?, sibling rivalry.
Casa de las Flores

Everyone’s most popular family on TV? This title undeniably belongs to the Duttons of Yellowstone. The Paramount Network show is a colossal hit that consistently sets and breaks records. The Season 4 finale, which wrapped earlier this month, drew over 11 million viewers, setting a new series record (Successions, on the other hand, was watched by 1.7 million people). It’s not hard to see why: Yellowstone is about as true to American values as it gets, telling the story of John Dutton (Kevin Costner), a former cattle rancher and the nation’s biggest landowner, who, deep down, is really just a salt of the earth cowboy fighting valiantly to preserve his way of life and defend what is rightfully his against greedy real estate developers. There’s plenty of family dysfunction, too, thanks to his children: acid-tongued Beth (Kelly Reilly), reluctant successor Kayce (Luke Grimes), and John’s own Judas, Jamie (Wes Bentley).

Henson). Let the succession battle begin, as the brothers and various close relatives compete for Dad’s approval.
