A New Episode of Tiger King Could Be On Its Way, According to Jeff Lowe
Netflix's Tiger King documentary series is a relatively lengthy seven episodes long, but as its tagline promises, the show crams enough "murder, mayhem, and madness" into its runtime to justify every installment. And now, according to one of the subjects of the series, Netflix could potentially be creating one more episode of its latest hit show.
If the new episode does pan out, it will have been announced in the most Tiger King-worthy way possible: via Cameo, the website that allows fans to order customized videos from celebrities. On Saturday, Los Angeles Dodger Justin Turner posted to Twitter a Cameo clip made by Jeff Lowe. In case you need a big cat enthusiast refresher, Lowe is the owner of Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, the zoo founded and formerly owned by Joseph Maldonado-Passage, also known as Joe Exotic.
After teasing Turner and his wife, Kourtney, for "wasting seven hours" watching him, Lowe revealed that more Tiger King could be coming our way.
"Netflix is adding one more episode, we'll be on next week," he said. "We're filming here tomorrow. Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on.
Netflix itself hasn't confirmed that a new episode is in the works, so don't pin your hopes on catching up with Lowe, Maldonado-Passage, and all the other big cat enthusiasts just yet. But the streaming service has already offered a bit of new Tiger King content, by way of a brief jailhouse interview with Maldonado-Passage. And while the coronavirus outbreak has largely ground the entertainment industry to a halt, both Oklahoma, home of G.W. Park, and South Carolina, home of Doc Antle's Myrtle Beach Safari zoo, are among the nine states that have resisted state-wide stay-at-home-orders. So it definitely seems possible that Netflix could be working on a new Tiger King installment.
