Tiger King has proved to be a roaring success on Netflix since it dropped in March 2020. But now fans want to know where the cast is now and what they are up to.
Jeff Lowe one of the stars of the Netflix documentary series “Tiger King,” said that Netflix is planning to release a new episode of the show starting next week.
If you can’t get enough of the insanely watchable true-crime series that premiered on Netflix just as social distancing started, you’re in for a real surprise (and no, it doesn’t involve the truth behind Carole Baskin and her missing ex-husband).
One of the stars of the series, Jeff Lowe, made a personalized Cameo for Los Angeles Dodgers player Justin Turner, and Lowe announced that one more episode is still to come in the epic “Tiger King” saga.
Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow,” Lowe said in the video. “Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on.
Tiger King” has been a wildly popular series for Netflix since it debuted on March 20. The docu-series is about the eccentric owners of wild tigers and how their world coincides with drug kingpins, conmen and cult leaders who all love the big cats.
It most closely follows Joe Exotic (né Joseph Maldonado-Passage), who by the end of the series winds up in jail serving a 22-year sentence for animal abuse and for a plot to hire an assassin to take out his rival and big cat owner, Carole Baskin.
Fans of the series have created petitions calling for Exotic’s release, and celebrities including Dax Shepherd have led social media campaigns to be cast in an inevitable “Tiger King” feature film.
It’s unclear what the nature of the new “Tiger King” episode would be either a continuation or a reunion of the existing docu-series.
Netflix hasn’t actually confirmed a new episode of the show, but given its huge popularity while everyone is stuck inside quarantining, it makes sense for the streaming network to capitalize on the “Tiger King” phenomenon while it’s still hot.
