Carole Baskin redux: Netflix to bring spotlight back to Central Florida rescue with 'Tiger King 2'

Netflix just announced a sequel to their wildly popular early pandemic hit Tiger King. As part of a larger reveal of a slate of true crime series coming to the streamer, Netflix revealed that Carole Baskin, Joe Exotic et. al will be coming back to our screens in Tiger King 2 this fall.

The specific release date is TBD, but a preview video showed that the new series will focus again on the currently incarcerated Joe Exotic and Tampa-area animal rescue operator Carole Baskin.
