Tiger King Documentary Producers Say There Could Be A 'Follow-Up'

Tiger King Documentary Producers Say There Could Be A 'Follow-Up'

Anyone who's seen Netflix's new seven-part docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness will know the story of Joe Exotic and his many rivals is nothing short of a rollercoaster.

Murder allegations, cults, polyamory... you name it.

Well, according to the producers behind the whirlwind documentary, there's still even more to the tale, and they aren't ruling out a 'follow-up'.

Producers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin spoke to Entertainment Weekly recently, and while nothing's set in stone - far from it - they did admit that the story is perhaps yet 'to be continued'.

Chaiklin said: "I mean, yes, we have a crazy amount of footage and it's a story that's still unfolding.

"We're not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there's a lot that's still unfolding in it, and it'll be just as dramatic and just as colourful as what has unfolded these past few years."

For anyone who hasn't had the joy of watching what is undoubtedly one of the biggest docs of the year, it centres on eccentric zoo owner Joseph Maldonado-Passage (who goes by the name Joe Exotic), a gun-toting polygamist who looks after a roadside zoo in Oklahoma.

With many individual narratives within the wider series, one of the biggest is the dark and twisted feud between Maldonado-Passage and exotic animal rival Carole Baskin.

"I think there's a lot of hypocrisy when it comes to Carol, and a lot of greenwashing," Goode told EW.

"I think that what people should take away from the show and what one should do to protect tigers, in particular, big cats, is to support more programs in the wild."

He added: "I have mixed feelings about supporting places that so-called 'rescue' big cats because I'm not sure, ultimately, they're providing such a service.

"I hate to say this, but the Humane Society rescues dogs or the ASPCA, and they humanely euthanise a lot of dogs and people sometimes take offense with that. But oftentimes that's the most humane thing to do, just humanely euthanise an animal rather than keeping them in a cage for the duration of its life.

"Carol keeps them in cages for the duration of their lives, and I'm not sure that's the right thing to do."

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is available to watch now on Netflix.
