Joe Exotic returns to Netflix in 2022. The American streaming platform promises a new season “even more crazy and chaotic”.
The Netflix platform announced Thursday the long-awaited sequel to the documentary series Tiger King: In the kingdom of the wild animals, to be broadcast in 2022 . The first season captivated nearly 64 million viewers, cloistered in their homes because of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.
The series followed the shenanigans and setbacks of “Joe Exotic” , an openly gay and colorful zoo owner ruling over a menagerie of felines, wacky employees and whimsical lovers. Real name Joe Maldonado-Passage, the “Tiger King” was sentenced to 22 years in prison for attempted murder and is currently in custody.
“Tiger King 2” will be “even crazier and more chaotic”, promises Netflix , with a trailer where we can see Joe making a phone call from his prison as well as Carole Baskin , animal protector Joe had tried to eliminate. Directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin remain in command of season 2 of “Tiger King”, described by Netflix as a “cultural phenomenon”.
