Netflix is taking viewers back to the world of Tiger King.
The streamer on Thursday dropped a teaser for the highly-anticipated follow-up to one of the biggest shows in the history of the streaming service.
The series is set to return sometime in the fall, but a definite date is TBD.
“The global hit Tiger King, which attracted 64 million households in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere, will return to Netflix for more madness and mayhem,” Netflix shared in a new statement regarding the series.
Indeed, Tiger King was the show everyone was talking about when it launched last year. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since the show, especially when you consider we had Carole Baskin on Dancing With the Stars last year.
The project propelled everyone associated to stardom — some of it good, and some of it not so much.
The series arrived as stay-at-home orders were underway for much of the world, the Netflix audience took a liking to Joe Exotic and everyone else involved.
The series delved into the feud between Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel and Carole Baskin, which took a devastating turn after Joe was arrested for orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot involving Baskin.
There have been rumors of a follow-up following the success of the original, but there’s been no word on just how it would be accomplished given the logistics.
Netflix is keeping the answers down low because it wants fans to be surprised when it returns.
Makes sense, right?
