Netflix officially confirmed that it has developed a follow-up to “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” the documentary that dominated the streaming service in early 2020.

‘Tiger King 2’ will return later this year with an update on zookeeper and convicted felon, Joe Exotic, and his rival, the founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue, Carole Baskin. The sequel, directed by Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, promises “more madness and mayhem,” according to a Netflix press memo released on Thursday, September 23.

In a brief clip released Thursday, Netflix showed what’s to come in the second “Tiger King,” with snippets of Baskin in her signature animal prints and Joe Exotic calling from prison. No exact premiere date was given for “Tiger King 2” at this time.
