“Tiger King 2” Among Five New True Crime Documentaries Coming to Netflix

Netflix is continuing to prove it is the home for true crime as they have just announced five new documentary films and series that will be heading to the streaming service.

We now have official confirmation that the series will return for even more madness later this year. The other films and series are all scheduled for a 2022 release and you can see more details about each one below.
