It’s becoming a strange rule of the COVID-19 pandemic: another year, another season of Tiger King. This week, Netflix has returned to the wild world of Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin with not one, not two, but five new episodes. If you thought before that this group of deviant people were crazy, wait until you see them with money and fame.
Tiger King 2 mostly revolves around how the massive success of Netflix’s original series has changed the lives of documentary subjects. There’s also some Don Lewis speculation thrown in there because of course there is. Wondering if this is the end for Tiger King? Here’s what we know and our best predictions for a Tiger King 3.
There will be one Tiger King 3 on Netflix?
It’s too early to say. Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness premieres in March 2020. Netflix didn’t announce its five-episode sequel until September 2021 with a premiere date of November. Based on that timeline, it seems Netflix likes to wait before publish new sections of this particular archive. If there is a Tiger King 3, we probably won’t hear about it until a few months before its release.
But whether a third season happens or not, it all depends on interest. When the first Tiger King was released, 34.3 million people watched it in the first 10 days of its release, according to Nielsen. Those numbers have made the docuseries one of the most successful Netflix original launches to date. If Tiger King 2 Even reaching a fraction of those numbers, there’s a good chance Netflix will consider another. We’ve seen the streaming giant do this before with the continuity of Be a murderer and Stairs. If a documentary gets enough attention, Netflix will likely offer its sequel.
What is possible? Tiger King 3 About?
One factor that worked in favor of the fans was Joe Exotic himself. In early 2020, Exotic was sentenced to 22 years in prison for animal cruelty and conspiracy to murder Carole Baskin. The release Tiger King brought Exotic a large following of supporters, who campaigned for his release. And to some extent, that support worked. In July 2021, a federal appeals court ordered Exotic’s re-sentence based on the argument that 22 years was too much.
So what does all of this mean? The case of Joe Exotic is still very much active. As we have seen with Be a murderer, that’s just the basis for the sequel. Another part may not include Exotic’s life later Tiger King. If he must serve his full 22-year sentence, Exotic will be 80 when he is released. But between the ongoing case of Exotic and Carole Baskin’s lawsuit against Netflix through this archive, there is certainly enough potential for a host of other volumes.
