Netflix Confirms Extra Tiger King Episode Will Land On 12 April
According to the streaming service, it will feature never-before-seen interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.
It will be hosted by Joel McHale and is called 'The Tiger King and I'.
Viewers were pretty excited to learn they would be getting another episode of the hit Netflix documentary series, following a comment from current G.W. Zoo owner Jeff Lowe.
Jeff announced we would get another instalment in a video which was tweeted by Justin Turner - baseball player for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Justin and Jeff came to know each other when the baseball star spoke about the hit docuseries on his wife Kourtney Turner's podcast.

In the video, Jeff says: "Hey Kourtney and Justin, this is Jeff and Lauren from the Tiger King show on Netflix. Thanks for watching our show.
"Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. We're filming here tomorrow."
Lowe then ends the video with a bit of health advice amid the coronavirus pandemic, telling the Turners: "Stay safe, and put your mask on."
If you haven't seen Tiger King, then you are seriously missing out. It's about Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka 'Joe Exotic' - the owner of a roadside zoo in Oklahoma. He is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for being caught trying to pay someone to kill his rival - animal rights activist Carole Baskin.
It just so happened that the person he tried to pay in the murder-for-hire plot turned out to be an undercover FBI agent.
If that doesn't sound weird enough, the show picks up drastically from there.
Jeff Lowe ended up taking over the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park after ex-business partner Joe was arrested.
Since he got sent to prison in April last year, Joe has launched a $94 million lawsuit against the US government.
Following the show's release, law enforcement officers in Florida have also launched another investigation into the disappearance of Baskin's second husband Jack 'Don' Lewis in 1997. Joe Exotic has consistently accused Baskin of 'feeding [Lewis] to the tigers', although she has always denied any involvement and was also never a suspect or even a person of interest, according to police.
