It’s unclear if the new episode is a follow-up, or just a cast reunion similar to what the streamer did after the first season of Love is Blind. Tiger King has been a ratings phenomenon for Netflix, and was named the most popular show on TV by Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Exotic is not enjoying his new notoriety.
Joe Exotic was interviewed from prison on March 22.

The convicted felon, who is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence, said, “You know it would be nice if I could actually see me being famous out there, but I’ve seen these same four walls for a year and a half now.” Exotic also expressed remorse for some of his actions depicted in the series. “I mean, when I left the zoo and I sent my chimpanzees to the sanctuary in Florida and imagined what my chimpanzees went through for 18 years, I — I’m ashamed of myself,” he says in the clip. He also again claimed he was innocent of the charges: “I’m done with the Carole Baskin saga. It’s now time to turn the tables and Joe get out of jail a free man and exonerated from all these charges.”
