Tiger King, season 2: Netflix

Netflix's hugely popular docu-series returns for the second instalment with more mystery and drama around Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin. Season 1 centred on the bizarre life of Joe Exotic, the owner of The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, and his battle with Big Cat Rescue’s Carole Baskin. It ended with the sentencing of the show’s main character, Joe Exotic, and this series will kick off from there. The second season drops amid a legal tussle as Baskin recently sued Netflix for using footage of her in the series.

Baskin alleged that Royal Goode Productions has breached contract by continuing to use footage of her and her husband in Tiger King 2, since they only signed appearance release forms for the first part of the documentary.
