Tiger King Season 2: Release Date, Plot, & Everything We Know So Far

In September 2021, Netflix confirmed that their hit documentary series Tiger King has been renewed for another season.

For the very few people who are unaware, this show revolves around the eccentric Oklahoma-based private zoo owner Joe Exotic, whose heated rivalry with big cat rights activist Carole Baskin takes a dark turn when he is embroiled in a murder-for-hire plot.

Tiger King became one of the most talked-about shows on Netflix last year, partially since it premiered near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. An aftershow hosted by Joel McHale was released shortly after the first season premiered where he interviewed several of the documentary’s subjects about Exotic and the series itself.

Not much is known about this new season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it! Here’s everything we know so far about Tiger King Season 2.

What Is the Tiger King Season 2 Release Date?

Tiger King Season 2 (also known as Tiger King 2) will be released on November 17, 2021. Season 1 premiered on March 20 of last year.

When will ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5 & 6 be on Netflix?

Even though the first season came out in the spring, it was still in the early stages of the pandemic. Therefore, people who were stuck in their homes and had nothing else to do could just simply watch Tiger King.

Season 2, however, premieres closer to Thanksgiving, which is usually when families come together and celebrate the holiday. This thinking may explain why Netflix is not releasing this season around the same time as they did last season.

Who Is Returning for Tiger King Season 2: Plot Explored

Out of everyone who is set to return for Season 2, three of the show’s high-profile subjects–Carole Baskin, Doc Antle, and Jeff Lowe–are most likely not returning, at least not in new footage.

For those who don’t know, Antle is the founder and director of The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and the Myrtle Beach Safari, a tour that runs through this private zoo. According to the documentary, Antle led somewhat of a cult that was made up of the young women who worked at his zoo, a portrayal that he told Oxygen he was “very disappointed” by. Shortly after the Tiger King 2 trailer released, Antle told The Sun News that he did not participate in this new season.

What Is Tiger King Season 2 About?

Not much is known about the story of Tiger King 2, but Chaiklin told Entertainment Weekly (EW) shortly after the first season was released that “there’s a lot that’s still unfolding.”

This season will likely look at Exotic’s time in prison and how he was able to obtain a shortened prison sentence. It may also reveal more of his exploits before being incarcerated and his fight with prostate cancer.

Even though Baskin won’t return for more Tiger King interviews, this new season could continue to cover the possibility that she murdered her second husband, Don Lewis. After all, a lawyer from Lewis’s family filed a lawsuit against Baskin on August 11, 2020. They also hired famed attorney Alex Spiro earlier this year to help uncover the mystery of what really happened to Don.

Tiger King 2 may also deal with how Lowe permanently closed the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in August 2020 after his exhibitor’s license was suspended for poor veterinary care. Not to mention that Baskin, who gained ownership from Exotic after the Western District Court of Oklahoma ruled that he fraudulently transferred ownership to his mother to avoid paying debts related to Baskin’s trademark infringement suit against him, sold the park to Francisco and Nelly Vasquez, who are both prohibited from turning it into an exotic zoo or tourist attraction.

Antle even told The Sun News that some of his ex-wives and ex-volunteers have been interviewed for the new season, so the show may continue exploring his cult of personality.
