Netflix announced the news of the docu-series' return on Twitter early Thursday morning.

"Tiger King is coming back this year — and Season 2 promises just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1!" the caption to the streaming platform's tweet read.

The announcement also featured a photo of the show's lead, Joe Exotic, smiling on a telephone in prison, with the words "A Netflix Documentary Series" and "Tiger King 2" overlaid on his face.

Fans are likely in for more drama surrounding a group of eccentric people involved in the world of big cat breeding and its bizarre underworld. It's unclear what specifically the second season will be about, or which characters are returning.

An official release date for the second season has not been announced.
