The second series was announced in September and now Netflix has given fans a first look at what Tiger King 2 will entail.
The original series released in 2020, became a global sensation and focussed on the Tiger King, Joe Exotic, an eccentric zoo owner who was caught up in a murder-for-hire story revolved around big cat rescuer Carole Baskin. The series received six Emmy nominations including Outstanding Documentary Series.

The voice of Exotic continues:
"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."
The trailer continues with Jeff Lowe, who took over the park explaining how the series changed their lives with sudden fame. He says, "Tiger King changed our lives overnight. We have more money than God right now."
We are then re-introduced to Carole Baskin again in the montage of clips with a voice-over bringing back the story of the death of her husband Don Lewis saying, "What happened to Don Lewis? Carole knows something. He was dealing with some shady characters down in Costa Rica."
