Mark your calendars – Tiger King 2 is coming to Netflix on November 17, and it’s going to be a wild ride. Netflix announced on Saturday that the feline-focused series is returning to the streaming service in less than two months, prepping fans for “just as much madness and mayhem.”
Leading up to the release date announcement, Netflix has shared several teaser videos, leaving fans foaming at the mouths for the next installment of the insane series. The most recent teaser showed an interview with the man behind the stripes, Joe Exotic, while he was in jail.
During the clip, the streaming service claimed to have “only scratched the surface” of the story. Besides this short trailer, Netflix has kept quiet about any of the details revolving around the second season. Perhaps hoping to shock the world as it did with the first edition, the streaming service has remained ambiguous about the upcoming content.
See the new trailer below.
During its first season, Tiger King initially popped up on Netflix’s homepage as a gentle suggestion for bored, quarantine-ridden viewers to enjoy. Once more and more people began clicking on the bizarre series, the whole world became infatuated with Joe Exotic and his tiger sanctuary. The story offered a strange mix between mystery, humor, animal advocacy, and just plain weirdness. And no one could get enough. Soon enough, Carole Baskin became a household name, and everyone knew about her husband’s suspicious death.
Meanwhile, the most popular Halloween costumes later that year consisted of orange and black stripes, a blonde mullet, and a cut-off vest. Tiger King consumed the world with such ferocity that when the series ended, a second installment was practically mandatory.
One Major Personality Is Missing From ‘Tiger King 2’
Even if you missed the Tiger King bandwagon the first time around, Netflix is offering a second chance to climb aboard. However, you might want to check out the first season if you want to know the story behind Carole Baskin since she won’t be a part of the show’s second season. She expressed her irritation with the series with Variety in a recent interview.
“My phone started ringing off the hook for three months straight, people cursing at me and telling me that they wanted to burn the place to the ground and they wanted to kill me and my family and the cats,” Baskin claimed.
Baskin implied that the first season of the series “misled” viewers regarding her story and her husband’s death.
“So whatever ‘Tiger King 2’ does, I’ll have that same reaction from the public that has been misled. I’ll have to spend a lot of time explaining to them how they have been misled, which means I have to watch it.”
