Netflix Has Just Dropped the Trailer for 'Tiger King 2' and It's As Wild As You'd Expect
Hey all you cool cats and kittens — the story of Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin isn't done yet.
Here's three things you need to know about the just-released full trailer for Tiger King 2 — and three reasons that'll likely get you watching the Netflix docuseries' second season. Firstly, Joe Exotic once again protests his innocence, which is thoroughly expected. Secondly, a new face pops up to make the same statement, backing it up with "I am an Eastern European bitch, so I cannot be wrong." And thirdly, Jeff Lowe, who took over Exotic's park, claims to now have "more money than god" thanks to the program's first-season success.
Obviously, when Tiger King 2 arrives on Wednesday, November 17, it'll put all of those snippets in context. It also promises to take viewers on quite the chaotic ride — again. The first series, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, might now feel like an early-pandemic novelties (it's what we all watched when lockdowns first hit and panic-buying toilet paper became a thing, after all), but it seems that we aren't done with cool cats and kittens just just yet.
As a heap of news headlines have tracked since March 2020, this story just keeps getting wilder — so there's plenty more Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin-related details for this follow-up to cover. Indeed, when Tiger King became a huge hit, another season of the docuseries itself was floated almost right away. Then, back in September, the streamer confirmed that Tiger King 2 would surface before this year is over.
Expect more details about Exotic's efforts to clear his name, Baskin's ownership of his former zoo, and what Lowe has been up to since the first season hit — and about fellow zoo-owner Tim Stark, ex-Exotic and Lowe associate Allen Glover, and Exotic's former employee James Garretson as well. This season doesn't come with a subtitle this time, but clearly it'll serve up more murder-related details, more mayhem and more madness.
Tiger King 2 will also arrive before any of the other projects that've leapt on the Joe Exotic bandwagon over the past two years, endeavouring to capitalise upon the worldwide obsession with him, Baskin and the duo's strange intertwined tale. So, in the near future, you'll also be watching a dramatised series with Kate McKinnon as Baskin that's been shooting in Australia this year — but you'll be watching Netflix's continuation of the story first.
