Netflix isn’t about to just sit there and let “Tiger King” die when it’s at its most popular. Despite the story pretty much being told already in the 7-part limited series, the streaming platform has just announced its plan to add one more episode to the series.
According to a social media post, Netflix has decided to do an aftershow for the massively popular docuseries, titled “The Tiger King and I.” The new installment will be hosted by Joel McHale and will include brand-new interviews with some key players from the series including John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.
This is exactly what Jeff Lowe was recently talking about in a video where he said that Netflix was working on a new episode of the series. Although, it doesn’t appear that there is any new footage or revelations that people can expect. What we’re going to get is just some more discussion with some of the crazy people that have delighted us in the docuseries that has saved more than 34 million people from the boredom of quarantine life.
Netflix isn’t the only platform that is going to capitalize on the “Tiger King” popularity. FOX is set to air a new docuseries produced by TMZ about Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin, and the rest of the “Tiger King” crew. That is expected to launch on Monday.
The real question is whether or not Netflix is going to attempt to figure out how to keep the “Tiger King” popularity alive for the future. Unlike “Stranger Things” and other series that have caught on, the docuseries doesn’t have a clear option for a sequel. But there’s no denying that people are just aching for any new information and more opportunities to see Joe Exotic and Co. For now, they’ll just have to be happy with a new aftershow debuting on Netflix this Sunday.
