Remember when Tiger King dropped on Netflix at the start of the pandemic and the absurdity of it distracted us from the horrific pandemic taking place?

Well, it’s back.

Tiger King 2 has dropped on Netflix and it promises to be as wild as the first season.

Producer Rebecca Chaiklin promised: “It’ll be just as dramatic and just as colorful as what has unfolded these past few years.

Netflix described the season:

“With Joe Exotic behind bars and Carole Baskin closing in on ownership of his disreputable zoo, the Emmy-nominated saga continues its twisted course with Tiger King 2 as newfound revelations emerge on the motivations, backstories, and secrets of America’s most notorious big cat owners.

“Old enemies and frenemies, including Jeff Lowe, Tim Stark, Allen Glover, and James Garretson return for another season of murder, mayhem, and madness. Thought you knew the whole story? Just you wait.”

Carole Baskin is suing Netflix for using ‘unauthorized’ footage on the show.

In their complaint, the Baskins claim:

“[the] Defendants’ unauthorized use of the film footage of the Baskins and Big Cat Rescue secured by Royal Goode Productions under the Appearance Releases will cause the Baskins irreparable injury for which the Baskins have no adequate remedy at law.”

Howard Baskin added:

“We made it very clear to [Tiger King directors Eric] Goode and [Rebecca] Chaiklin that we had no desire or intent to be involved in TK2. When Netflix released its official Tiger King 2 trailer last week, we were shocked to see that we were going to be a central theme of the sequel, and they were using the film footage again without our permission … While we cannot stop Netflix and Royal Goode Productions from producing low-brow, salacious and sensational programing [sic], we do believe that we have the right to control footage filmed of us under false pretenses.”

Better load up Netflix.
