tiger king, the hugely popular documentary strongly associated with the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, will premiere on November 17th, Netflix revealed at the Tudum event on Saturday.
Netflix just announced the second season, which it is called Tiger King 2, on Thursday as part of a short trailer revealing many other true crime shows coming to the streaming service. Netflix promises it will have “just as much chaos and madness” as the first season. While it’s unclear what exactly the second season is about, Netflix’s Tudum trailer showed a short clip of Joe Exotic, the first season’s main focus, in prison, so it could focus in part on that.
tiger king‘s first season was a cultural sensation; in a press release, Netflix said that it “attracted 64 million households in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere.” By making a season 2, Netflix seems to be trying again to recapture that lightning-in-a-bottle popularity.
