Tiger King 2 is Coming Soon. Heres Everything You Need to Know Before it Hits Netflix Next Month.

What will Tiger King 2 be about?

You’ll definitely have to tune in to see, but the description of the date announcement video promised “more madness and mayhem.” In an interview with Entertainment Weekly after Tiger King was first released last year, the Tiger King showrunners revealed they have enough archival footage to go deeper on the storylines. With the titular Tiger King, Joe Exotic, still behind bars, Tiger King might seem to have a resolution. But other roadside zoo operators like Doc “Bhagavan” Antle and Mario Tabraue are still out there, as well as Big Cat Rescue cofounder (and Joe Exotic enemy) Carole Baskin.

“I mean, yes, we have a crazy amount of footage and it’s a story that’s still unfolding," showrunner Rebecca Chaiklin told EW. “There could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it, and it’ll be just as dramatic and just as colorful as what has unfolded these past few years.”

Will Joe Exotic be in Tiger King 2?

Based on the trailer, Joe does seem to make a few appearances, that is, via collect phone calls from prison where he is currently serving a 22-year sentence. Footage from the date announcement video showed Joe still hell-bent on “the truth” getting out, whatever “the truth” is.

What about Carole Baskin? Will she be in season 2?

Carole Baskin has been extremely vocal about her dislike for the show, calling it “salacious” and detailing how it’s negatively impacted her. She told RadioTimes.com that she would indeed not be returning for the second season.

“It was just a few weeks ago that Rebecca Chaiklin had reached out asking if we could clear the air,” said Carole to the outlet. “I have been speaking about how we had been so misled into thinking this was going to be the Blackfish for big cats and then it turned out to be the freak show that they produced. So when she said she wanted to clear the air, I felt like, you know, that’s just absolutely ridiculous. It was so obvious that I had been betrayed by them. Why would she ever think that I would be willing to speak to them again. And so I told her to just lose my number.”

There was a shot of her in the trailer, so the producers might be using some archival footage of her in the new season, but that's unclear right now. What was evident though, is that this season is definitely diving deeper into what happened to Carole's missing husband Don Lewis. Oof!

When all that leftover footage comes to light, we have no doubt it’ll be just as colorful (and wild) as season 1. Start mentally preparing now, friends!
