There was a time when Joe Exotic and Carol Baskin ruled the roost of our escapism thanks to Tiger King’s chokehold on entertainment.
Things have changed since 2020. We aren’t locked in anymore, and the world is returning to some sort of a shade of the one we once knew. But there’s a friendly ghost from our collective cultural past that’s not done with us yet.
Tiger King is officially returning to Netflix for a second season.
As per The Verge, Netflix has announced that the hit documentary will return for a second season later this year- however release dates haven’t yet been spilled.
The sequel series is set to bring “just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1″, which are pretty big tiger-striped shoes to fill.
If you by some unlikely chance forgot what happened in season one, here’s a recap:
We chose to see Joe Exotic, the character (who is admittedly hard to believe isn’t fictional) and his “chaotic role as the owner of a big cat zoo in Oklahoma (as per HypeBeast) and his rivalry with Carol (insert Joe’s choice of words) Baskin. We were left stranded at the final episode with Exotic’s arrest and conviction in ties to a murder-for-hire scheme toward Baskin. To this day, Exotic is still serving his 22-year sentence.
As for Season 2, Netflix hasn’t said too much as of yet, but in a ‘The Home of True Crime” Slate announcement, Tiger King’s Season 2 was announced alongside other titles including:
The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman,
The Tinder Swindler,
Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King and
