Just when you thought things couldn’t get any wilder…
Netflix’s Tiger King has taken the world by storm since its release last month, with Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin’s now-iconic feud becoming an internet sensation. Audiences everywhere have been absolutely obsessed with the mulleted zoo owner’s bonkers antics – from his (arguably fantastic) country tracks with homemade music videos, to his utterly mad one-liners. As peculiar as Joe Exotic is, it’s difficult to take your eyes off the fascinating character.
And now, it looks like the meme-worthy docuseries is coming back for a bonus episode, according to cast member Jeff Lowe, anyway.
Fans will know Jeff as the mega-shady businessman who played a huge part in the fall of Joe Exotic, working with the FBI to provide information on the former zoo owners crimes to push him out of the business. It was no secret either, as Jeff proudly admitted all of this on camera with absolutely no fear or shame as he discussed how his relationship with Joe came to blows.
The news of a brand new episode was confirmed in a video that surfaced online just yesterday featuring Jeff and his wife, saying in the video:
“Netflix is adding one more episode, we’ll be on next week. We’re filming here tomorrow. Take care, stay safe and put your mask on.”
While the show wrapped up what happened to Joe Exotic, it left a lot of unanswered questions – particularly around the others involved in the murder-for-hire plot. Did Jeff build his new zoo? Will Allen face charges for perjury? Did Doc Antle really euthanise those cubs? Who knows. But maybe we’ll get some answers in the brand new bonus episode.
While it does appear that Netflix may be filming a little something with Jeff Lowe, there’s currently no official confirmation of a release date, or even of a bonus episode at all. The episode would be a first for the streaming service, who have usually saved additional episodes for carving out a brand new season, however, time will tell whether Jeff’s claims are legit. And when it does, we’ll be tuning in for all the drama.
