The five-episode series is co-produced and directed by Rebecca Chaiklin and Eric Goode, with Chris Smith and Fisher Stevens serving as executive producers. Tiger King 2 teases that “newfound revelations emerge on the motivations, backstories, and secrets of America’s most notorious big cat owners,” with Jeff, Tim Stark, Allen Glover, and James Garretson returning on-camera.
Season one staple Erik Cowie, who once worked for Joe Exotic, will not be making an appearance; he was found dead at a New York City residence earlier this month at the age of 52.
Tiger King 2 may also follow Joe’s re-sentencing after a court vacated his 2020 sentence, ruling that the pair of murder-for-hire plot counts should have been grouped as a single conviction.
“If I have to make a deal with the Devil, I will make a deal with the Devil,” Joe sums up.
Watch the trailer above to see why there’s no taming this beast of a story.
Tiger King 2 premieres Wednesday, Nov. 17 on Netflix.
