Netflix Has Officially Confirmed That “Tiger King 2” is Coming Soon! [Updated]

Last year the Netflix docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” was a lockdown hit around the world and even spawned an ‘after-show’ of sorts with Joel McHale. Since then there have been a few rumours and talks about a follow-up series and now Netflix has officially confirmed it is returning. The series is, in a nutshell, about big cat owners in the US, murder for hire, polygamy, country music and politics. We don’t yet have any information about what “Tiger King 2” will be about though seeing as Joe Exotic is still incarcerated and Carole Baskin has stated in a few interviews that she felt tricked by Netflix and does not want to be involved in any sequel series. We expect it to return before the end of the year though as the ‘coming soon’ status is usually added to titles on Netflix due to be launched within 2-3 months. You can see the synopsis for the original series below as well as the trailer and we will keep you up to date with any news or confirmed release dates.

UPDATE 22nd August: thanks to our friends at What’s On Netflix we’ve been notified that the ‘coming soon’ tag has now been removed. We suspect it will still be coming around Autumn/Fall still and that someone has had their wrist slapped for letting that slip…

Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe’s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.
