Netflix: Tiger King 2 confirmed
In the first season, directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin told the showman’s story “Joe Exotic“, Or Joseph Maldonado-Passage, who kept tigers, lions and other big cats in Oklahoma. The docuseries revolved around a commissioned murder against Carole Baskinthe manager of a facility called Big Cat Rescuewhich lobbied and lobbied to be able to close other competing facilities such as that of Maldonado-Passage.
Baskin was able to finance her battle through the fortune she inherited from her late husband, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The whole series is based on facts that really happened, which went pretty viral in the United States a few years ago.

In January 2020, Joe Exotic was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison after being found guilty of attempting to hire two different men to kill Baskin. In July, a federal appeals court ruled that he should be given a shorter prison sentence.
There have been rumors of a project related to the second season of Tiger King for quite some time. On the other hand, there are many aspects of the story still to be told, such as the definitive closure of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma after the conviction of Joe Exotic for the abuse and exploitation of exotic animals, and his request for a presidential pardon from Donald Trump, which never came.
