Netflix’s Tiger King Season 2 now has a brief trailer and a release date. The follow-up to the show, presumably documenting the continuing adventures of its subject, Joe Exotic, from behind bars, will be released on November 17, 2021.
We didn’t even know Tiger King Season 2 was coming until this week, when Netflix revealed an image of Joe Exotic on a jail phone with confirmation he was due to land this year. The first season was hugely popular, representing the peak of our relationship with streaming at the start of the pandemic last year.
Here’s the brief teaser, which also seems to indicate that it will shed more light on Exotic’s rival, Carole Baskin:
Netflix gives the show the connect line “We’ve only scratched the surface …”. We’ll have to see about that.
The second season stars the same directors as the first Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin. Over 64 million people watched the first season, so it’ll be an interesting test to see if people still care more than 18 months later.
Joe Exotic, real name JosephMaldonado-Passage, is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence after being convicted of murder for hire and animal abuse. The first season focused on his Oklahoma-based Big Cat Park and his growing feud with Baskin.
Tiger King was the comfort food we absolutely needed during the pandemic. It’s unclear how the story evolved in the midst of the pandemic, but considering how many people we’ve met in Joe Exotic’s world over this first season, we’re sure they’ll fill up. the season of something.
