Netflix has announced “Tiger King 2”, a sequel to the original “Tiger King” documentary that will premiere later this year. The series is created by the original “Tiger King” directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin and is being produced by Goode Films Production in association with Library Films and Article 19 Films.
The first installment profiled wildcat owners with a focus on Joe Exotic, the former owner of the G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, who now is serving a lengthy prison sentence for crimes against his animals and his role in a murder-for-hire plot against his nemesis Carole Baskin. Baskin has been asked to participate in the sequel.
A Peacock Joe Exotic miniseries starring “Saturday Night Live‘s” Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin and John Cameron Mitchell as Joe Exotic is also currently in production.
