Joe Exotic Will Return For Second Season Of Tiger King

Just when you thought you had heard the last of Tiger King, the stars of the show pop up to tell you they're not done just yet.

Because the Netflix documentary series was such a massive success, it's clear the producers want to keep the good times rolling and are gearing up for a second season.

The star of the show Joe Exotic is reportedly going to be featured in the sequel, according to his husband.

Dillon Passage shared the news on Good Morning Britain, where he also confirmed he had recorded footage for the second season.

He revealed: "I've done a little bit of filming for that [season 2]. I do not know the release date but it's going to be very interesting because it will tell a little bit of Joe's arrest and afterwards.

"I know there's going to be some phone call recordings of Joe that is going to be in it. There is no filming since he's incarcerated."

It's hard to believe there is more of the story to tell after audiences were taken on a wild ride of Joe Exotic's zoo and his rivalry with Big Cat Rescue founder and owner Carole Baskin.

Dillon didn't indicate whether Baskin has been involved in the followup season. It's highly unlikely after she revealed she wasn't exactly happy with the way she was portrayed in the first instalment, labelling it 'salacious and sensational'.

While Netflix hasn't officially confirmed there will be a season two of the smash hit show, The Hollywood Reporter claims another episode is on its way.

Following the release of Tiger King, the once-famed zoo has been permanently shut down.

The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, was previously owned by Exotic but was taken over by his one-time business partner Jeff Lowe.

Lowe said in a Facebook post that while the animals - predominantly big cats - will continue to receive 'excellent care', they've had to close the park for a variety of reasons.

He explained: "The Tiger King phenomenon has definitely changed our lives in many ways.

"It has, and probably will continue to make us a target of every nutjob and animal rights loon in the world, but we are prepared.

"As of today, we have decided to close the old zoo effective immediately."

Lowe went on to say he has now also voluntarily forfeited his United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) license to exhibit animals as a result of the park closing down.

He argued that the park had undergone 'five consecutive perfect investigations' but the USDA had eventually 'folded to the pressures of PETA and continue to make false accusations against me'.
