A Tiger King sequel is on its way later this year as part of Netflix's upcoming true crime slate - with a short teaser video showing what's in store:
The new instalment is directed by Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, the duo behind the first hit docu-series, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, which followed gun-toting, polygamist zoo-owner Joe Exotic and his various industry rivals.
A synopsis for Tiger King 2 says: "The global hit Tiger King, which attracted 64 million households in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere, will return to Netflix for more madness and mayhem."
Netflix confirmed the new series lands later this year.
Over on its blog, Netflix also revealed a little more about what to expect from its true crime programming for this year and beyond.
This includes The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman - a three-part series launching in January 2022, telling the 'jaw-dropping story of one of the world's most audacious conmen who was convicted in 2005 for stealing fortunes and destroying multiple lives'.
A synopsis explains: "Now, in an incredible twist, the story reaches into the present day, with a desperate family who fear for their mother's safety."
The Tinder Swindler is a film premiering in February 2022.
It documents the story of a 'prolific conman who posed as a billionaire playboy on Tinder, and the women who set out to bring him down'.
Documentary film Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King and series Bad Vegan will also be released at some point next year.
The former follows a group of investors-turned-sleuths as they try to 'unlock the suspicious death of cryptocurrency multimillionaire Gerry Cotten and the missing $250 million they believe he stole from them'.
The latter shines a light on celebrity restaurateur and 'Vegan Fugitive' Sarma Melngailis, who was conned out of millions by a man who convinced her he could expand her food empire and make her pet dog immortal.
Netflix said: "Stories about real crimes have captivated audiences since the dawn of media, from the old days of town criers and tabloids to today's podcasts and social media.
"As we've seen since our Emmy Award-winning series Making A Murderer first pierced the culture in 2015, documentaries can also meet that curiosity by immersing viewers in a true story to dissect its complexities and make sense of the unexpected.
"Now as we explore the spectrum of true crime, one particularly riveting area is that of cons, scams, and cautionary tales.
"For example, earlier this year our series Heist revealed how ordinary people almost got away with extraordinary cons, This Is A Robbery examined a still-unsolved art theft, and Cocaine Cowboys: Kings of Miami chronicled the rise and fall of drug kingpins.
"Whether you want to dive into the psyche of a con artist, empathize with the victims of a scam, or piece together the puzzle of an investigation, these wild stories are often full of surprising twists and unusual perspectives."
