PEOPLE 27 September, 2021 - 02:10am

Netflix announced at Saturday's TUDUM event that the hit series will return on Wednesday, Nov. 17, alongside a sneak peek of what promises to be an epic second season.

In the clip, above, viewers are whisked back to the chaos surrounding the now-defunct Greater Wynewood Exotic Animal Park and its former owner Joe Maldonado-Passage ("Joe Exotic"), who is currently waiting to be re-sentenced for charges related to plotting to kill his nemesis, animal rights activist Carole Baskin, among other charges.

In addition to following the self-proclaimed Tiger King's ongoing antics, other topics from the original documentary will be rehashed, including Baskin's missing ex-husband, Donald Lewis.

Also returning is Jeff Lowe, the second and final owner of the Greater Wynewood Exotic Animal Park, and Doc Antle, the founder and director of The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.) in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Both men are being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding their respective big cat practices.

Prior to the sneak peek, Baskin, 60, slammed the upcoming series in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, calling it "a reality show dumpster fire."

"I don't know how they put out a Tiger King 2 when Joe Schreibvogel's [Exotic] in jail and I'm refusing to be played again," she said. "Rebecca Chaiklin said she wanted to 'clear the air' about what they did to me in Tiger King. I told her to lose my number. There is no explanation for such a betrayal and false portrayal."

In May, Lowe's attorney Walter Mosley told PEOPLE in a statement that his client encourages viewers to watch season 2 of Tiger King to hear what he believes is the true story behind the recent headlines.

"Jeff tells me to share with you to 'watch Tiger King 2 for the real story, not the story made up by a corrupt DOJ,' " the statement read.

Tiger King Season 2 Is Repeating Netflix's Biggest True Crime Mistake

Screen Rant 27 September, 2021 - 02:10am

On its own end, Netflix moved quickly to greenlight a second season. The first season aired in April 2020 and Tiger King season 2 was already in production and filming by the summer of 2020, just a few months later. Recently, the streaming platform announced that season 2 will drop on Netflix on November 21 of this year, just in time to binge over a long Thanksgiving weekend. This alacrity in turning the second season around may on the surface seem like a good sign, but it's actually why it likely won't be nearly as well-received as the first season.

Netflix is making the same mistake with Tiger King season 2 that it already made with Making a Murderer season 2. The latter series chronicled the twisting story of Steven Avery, a man who was wrongly convicted for murder and served 18 years in prison before being released, only to later be arrested again and rightfully convicted in 2007 for the murder of Teresa Halbach. The first season was gripping as it was filmed over the course of ten years, with the documentarians able to craft a compelling and complex story. However, upon the success of the first season, Netflix hurried to greenlight a season 2 and it was poorly received, being rushed and inconsequential. The same issue is about to plague Tiger King season 2. Filming alone took over five years for the first season, which was necessary in order for the team to get a full picture of the story unfolding. Filming to release of season 2, however, will only be a year and a few months in total. Just as with Making a Murderer season 2, there will be nothing to update with Tiger King season 2 and the result will be a lot of pointless filler.

That said, it's entirely possible Tiger King season 2 could focus on supporting character Doc Antle. Last November, he was charged with two felony counts of wildlife trafficking and 13 other misdemeanor charges related to animal cruelty and potential violations of the Endangered Species Act, along with two of his daughters. So is another season 1 supporting character, Jeff Lowe, whose zoo is also in trouble with the law for violating the Endangered Species Act and Animal Welfare Act. But the season 2 release date teaser also appeared to show a brief shot of Joe Exotic in jail, so it appears much will revolve around him and his attempt to fight his conviction, which, frankly, makes for boring television.

It should also be remembered that Tiger King season 1 was released in the first full month of the pandemic, when people were trapped at home and absolutely starved for something, anything, to entertain them while adjusting to the boredom of lockdown. It's entirely possible it will prove to have been falsely inflated interest. November will reveal all when Tiger King season 2 is released.

Tiger King returns to Netflix for Season 2

11Alive 27 September, 2021 - 02:10am

What followed, of course, is the son of the twice-impeached president getting a quick reply from The View host Ana Navarro that offered a taste of his own medicine regarding his own once-COVID-sickened father. The daytime talk show devolved into chaos on Friday when two co-hosts, Navarro and Sunny Hostin, learned live on air that they were positive ahead of an interview with the current vice president.

Later in the weekend, Trump Jr. tried to weight-shame members of the cast in the wake of the positive tests by making a tasteless joke about comorbidities.

Given the Ana Navarro news, I think it’s time for a national conversation about the dangers of Covid-19 & obesity. https://t.co/e3vdsBvOOc

— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) September 24, 2021

“Given the Ana Navarro news, I think it’s time for a national conversation about the dangers of Covid-19 & obesity,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

But Navarro wasn’t having it, responding to the tweet with a scathing reply that wasn’t exactly funny, but probably hurt a bit more given how personal it got.

@DonaldJTrumpJr, thanks for your concern.

Or just ask your sister to call him for you. https://t.co/1v6GISIt5B

— Ana Navarro-Cárdenas (@ananavarro) September 25, 2021

“Fortunately for you, if you want to have a conversation about the effects of obesity on people with COVID, your dad is a phone call away…assuming he answers your calls,” Navarro said. “Or just ask your sister to call him for you.”

Trump, of course, needed experimental therapies to save his life after his oxygen levels dipped to dangerously low levels and he was rushed to Walter Reed in Washington last October after contracting the extremely deadly disease. Meanwhile, Navarro tweeted on Saturday that she had gotten a third negative test, which likely means she’s already in the clear.

— Ana Navarro-Cárdenas (@ananavarro) September 25, 2021

What’s important is that Navarro is healthy and didn’t seem to experience any adverse effects thanks to her vaccination and routine testing on the show. And while Trump Jr. was trying to be smug about a “national conversation” regarding coronavirus it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Despite widespread vaccine availability, according to the New York Times more than 2,000 people died from COVID-19 again on Saturday, the vast majority of them unvaccinated.

Thank you for letting us know.

Tiger King 2 series return date confirmed by Netflix - and it's soon

The US Sun 25 September, 2021 - 06:23pm

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

TIME to get your mullets in check - Tiger King 2 has been confirmed to be back on our screens in just a couple of months’ time. 

The bonkers documentary - which tracked the rivalry between eccentric roadside zoo owner Joe Exotic and animal rights activist Carole Baskin - gripped the world during the first weeks of lockdown. 

Now, the series will be adding some new episodes to the saga. 

It’s expected to track Joe Exotic’s ongoing efforts to be released from prison, where he is currently serving a 32-year sentence for the murder-for-hire plot of Baskin as well as a series of animal abuse charges. 

Exotic has consistently maintained his innocence throughout, and has since claimed he is being mistreated in prison and also has prostate cancer. 

Baskin is refusing to take part in the new documentary, after feeling ‘betrayed’ by the filmmakers for her portrayal. 

She insists she signed on to the first episodes under the impression it was to be ‘the Blackfish of the big cat industry’ exposing the mistreatment of animals. 

Instead, the focus was on her ongoing vicious rivalry with Exotic, which includes several allegations from him that she ‘murdered husband Don Lewis and fed him to her tigers’ despite having no evidence to prove as such and her consistent denial of such. 

"I don't know how they put out a TK2 when Joe's in jail and I'm refusing to be played again," Carole exclusively told The Sun

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

The Big Cat Rescuer CEO added that she told executives to "lose my number," insisting that "there is no explanation for such a betrayal and false portrayal."

The original series was released in March 2020, and since then several major faces on the series have died or cut their ties from Exotic. 

Exotic’s GW Zoo in Oklahoma was handed over to Baskin, who has now sold it under the condition that it no longer be used as a zoo.  

Carole Baskin Slams Tiger King Creators After Season 2 Update, Explains Why She'll Be Watching Anyway

CinemaBlend 25 September, 2021 - 03:13pm

It's been over a year since Netflix's Tiger King since hit our screens and, for the most part, the hype had mostly died down. However, Netflix isn't quite done with the story of Joe Exotic, as it was recently announced that work on Tiger King 2 is underway, much to the dismay of Exotic's rival. Carole Baskin. The Big Cat Rescue CEO recently slammed the docuseries' creators after the Season 2 update but she also explained why she’ll still need to watch it when it streams.

It makes sense that Carole Baskin wouldn’t be thrilled about another documentary, especially since she’s been on the receiving end of so many jokes and has experienced legal trouble since the series aired last year. In an interview with Variety, Baskin said she assumed there would be more to the docuseries and was aware they were working on Season 2 but that she doesn’t consider it a documentarian work at all. In fact, she calls the whole production a “dumpster fire,” saying:

I know some people who have been involved in it and they were doing more filming, so I assumed at some point they would come out with a Tiger King 2. It took them five years to put together the first one, so I thought it would be a lot longer. . . . I wouldn’t call Eric Goode or Rebecca Chaiklin true documentarians. I mean that was just a reality show dumpster fire.

According to Carole Baskin, the Tiger King directors did not do her justice, and the finished documentary apparently wasn’t what they had discussed. In the same interview, Baskin recalled the conversations she had to have with her friends and family to set the record straight about the way she was portrayed, which is something she assumes will need to happen again after Tiger King’s second season. With this, it seems she'll be tuning in for this new season:

My phone started ringing off the hook for three months straight, people cursing at me and telling me that they wanted to burn the place to the ground and they wanted to kill me and my family and the cats. So whatever Tiger King 2 does, I’ll have that same reaction from the public that has been misled. I’ll have to spend a lot of time explaining to them how they have been misled, which means I have to watch it.

During Netflix's fan event, Tudum, it was announced that Tiger King 2 is set to be released on Netflix on November 17. While it sounds like Carole Baskin will be watching right along with us, it’s unclear if Joe Exotic will be allowed to tune in from his jail cell. Fans of the wild docuseries may also want to keep an eye out for the upcoming Joe Exotic series for Peacock TV, which is sure to capture the essence of the polarizing doc.
