'Tiger King 2' Is Officially Happening, Coming to Netflix This Year

It’s official: Tiger King is getting a sequel.

Bonus: It’s coming to Netflix sometime before the end of the year.

Netflix has confirmed the follow-up to the 2020 documentary breakout. The streamer promised “more madness and mayhem” and also released a brief teaser video (below).

A second edition of Tiger King has been long rumored and in August a listing for a Tiger King sequel was posted on a Netflix site, drawing headlines, but then it was removed.

Tiger King followed the life of zookeeper and convicted felon Joe Exotic and became a pop culture sensation in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. 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.

Netflix announced several other documentary projects exploring crimes and con artists, along with this trailer that includes some Tiger King 2 footage.

Here are the other upcoming projects.
