Tiger King coming back to Netflix for season 2
Netflix a nnounced that its show Tiger King is set to return later in 2021.
Season one of Tiger King became popular in the early days of the pandemic when it was released in March 2020.
"Tiger King is coming back this year — and Season 2 promises just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1!" Netflix wrote Thursday on Twitter .
In its first four weeks on the streaming platform, Netflix reported that more than 64 million households tuned in to view the feud between fan-favorite Joe "Exotic" Schreibvogel and Carole Baskin.
The show charted the fall of Schreibvogel, who went from a flamboyant, mullet-bearing country singer, polygamist, and former gubernatorial candidate who operated a tiger enclosure and roadside zoo in Oklahoma to a prisoner serving a sentence for what the show detailed as a murder -for-hire plot surrounding Baskin.
After season one was released, one of the show's producers said another season was possible given the amount of footage available.
"We have a crazy amount of footage," said Rebecca Chaiklin. "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."
No details have been released regarding the second season — only that it will arrive before 2022.
