The official trailer for Tiger King 2 has just been released. A synopsis from Netflix reads- “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.”
Tiger King 2 will pick right where the original series left off. Joe Exotic’s ‘Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park’ has closed down and Exotic was sentenced to 22 years in a Texas prison for orchestrating a murder-for-hire plot to kill Carole Baskin, an animal rights activist. Exotic, 58, says in the 2 minute clip in a phone call from jail: “There’s an innocent man in prison. Everybody from the zoo is out there making money, and I’m paying the price for every one of them people. If you give a damn, it’s time to speak up.” Season 2 will also look into Baskin’s own mysterious background involving her former husband, Don Lewis. He vanished in 1997 and was declared legally dead in 2002. Fans have long speculated that the 60-year-old had something to with his demise.
The five-episode Tiger King 2 premieres on Nov. 17. Watch the new trailer here:
