New 'Tiger King' Episode Coming to Netflix, Says Zoo Owner


If you love the mullet-rocking, tiger-training Joe Exotic, you may have binge-watched the new Netflix docu-series "Tiger King."

Fans need to know that the "Tiger King" sensation is not over just yet.

Netflix is releasing an extra episode of the series next week, according to zoo owner Jeff Lowe from the show. Lowe revealed the information about a new episode in a video posted on Twitter by Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They're filming here tomorrow," Lowe said in the video.

Lowe did not say whether the new episode will be a follow-up to the show’s seventh episode. He also did not specify if it would be a reunion episode.

The show tells a story of Joe’s rise as a private zoo owner and big cat handler as well as his history of crime in being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot to kill a Florida woman, his animal activist archenemy. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison for hiring someone to try to kill Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin.

If Joe seems familiar, you may remember him from his 2016 run for president, which earned him a segment on “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” one month before Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

It appears that some of these people have been a part of our lives all along, crossing paths with some of our favorite artists.

Doc Antle, the cult-like leader and founder of Myrtle Beach Safari, has been providing animals from his place for movies and TV shows for several years. Antle has even appeared on Late Night programs and invited stars to meet his animals.

A photo surfaced from Britney Spears’ famous 2001 MTV Video Music Awards performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U,” featuring a live snake. While looking closely at the photo, you can see Doc Antle with a live tiger.

Beyoncé once visited the Myrtle Beach Safari where she fed a tiger and even had the opportunity to snuggle with a chimp.
