Detailing the life of controversial zookeeper Joe Exotic, the first season of the show dropped to the streaming service in the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It became a global phenomenon, attracting viewers from 64 million households in just the first four weeks after its premiere.

As such, it's no surprise Tiger King 2 has been greenlit, with the sequel to arrive on the streamer later in 2021.
