Can’t get enough of “Tiger King”? Don’t despair. Netflix is releasing an extra episode next week, Variety reported.
“Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” is a true-crime docuseries about wild animal owners in the United States.
The documentary focuses on the self-proclaimed Tiger King, Joe Exotic, aka Joseph Maldonado-Passage, who keeps hundreds of wild animals in cages at his G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, Entertainment Weekly reported.
Current zoo owner Jeff Lowe broke the news in a Cameo video posted on Twitter by Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Justin Turner.
“Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow,” Lowe said in the video.
Lowe joined later episodes of “Tiger King” as Exotic’s business partner, Entertainment Weekly reported.
It is not clear if the new episode will be a follow-up to the show’s seven-episode run or a reunion, Variety reported.
Maldonado-Passage, 57, is currently serving a 22-year sentence in federal prison for two counts of murder-for-hire, eight counts of falsifying wildlife records and nine counts of violating the Endangered Species Act. The murder-for-hire charges stem from a plot to have a hitman kill Carole Baskin of Tampa, Florida, and the wildlife crimes are related to Maldonado-Passage’s killing of five tigers and falsifying of paperwork.
Netflix did not respond to a request for comment about a new episode, the magazine reported.
