Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Mystery has proven to be very popular, and I wanted to look into whether a Season 2 is in development and when its release date would be.
This latest Netflix docuseries has taken the world by storm.
Some people might have watched the series and ended up scratching their heads thinking, “why did this docuseries do so well?”
There are a whole host of reasons why the show did so well.
The main reason is that the story of the Tiger King (a.k.a. Joe Exotic) is absolutely bonkers.
The show is called Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Mystery and it really does have all of that.
Then there’s the fact that Tiger King dropped whilst we were all in lockdown.
When might Tiger King Season 2’s release date be?
I don’t think the show would have done as well if we hadn’t all been in lockdown.
I know so many people who’ve binge-watched the show (myself included), and the main reason they did it was because they were stuck inside.
It’s also a very compelling story, and one that’s seemingly still developing.
Over 35 million people have watched Tiger King, making it the second most-watched thing on Netflix behind Stranger Things Season 3.
This means that there probably will be a Season 2, or at least more episodes in the future.
We already have a new episode of Tiger King which is called Tiger King And I.
Should there be a Season 2?
The Tiger King And I features Community’s Joel McHale and it’s basically an after show in which he interviews people involved in the story.
When we heard from Jeff Lowe that there’d be another episode of Tiger King, many people got excited thinking that we were going to get to see more of the story unfold.
However, what we got was Joel McHale being Joel McHale interviewing annoying people.
That’s not really what we wanted and I think Netflix has realised that.
The thing is that it’s really up to Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin who directed the docuseries.
If they have more of the story to tell, they might do it.
The fact of the matter is there won’t be a new episode until there have been developments in the case.
Will there ever be more Tiger King?
Joe Exotic is currently in prison, yet he might end up being let out soon.
President Trump revealed that he’s thinking of pardoning Exotic after watching the series (please don’t).
This would be an interesting development.
It was also revealed that the police has reopened the Don Lewis case which means that Carol Baskin has been put back into the spotlight.
This all means that there could very well be new episodes of Tiger King in the future, not unlike what Netflix did with Making A Murderer.
However, it’ll probably won’t end up on the streaming platform for a while.
