Is the world really ready for a new episode of Netflix successful docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness? Whether or not we’re emotionally or spiritually ready, it’s possible a new episode may be coming our way in the near future — if we’re to believe a recent tease from series subject Jeff Lowe.
Just a few weeks after Tiger King‘s March 22 debut on Netflix and subsequent ascent into one of the most talked-about releases of 2020, Lowe is teasing even more new footage is coming soon. Lowe hinted at the possibility of a new episode while he and Lauren were filming a Cameo video (which made its was to Twitter for the masses to enjoy) for a Tiger King fan. After negging the Cameo video recipient, Lowe shared, “Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow.”
Now, is a new episode actually happening? No official comments from Tiger King producers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin have been made in the last few days on the subject. However, comments have been made since Tiger King‘s release which could point toward new episodes being cut together for release, either as one-off episodes or a completely new season. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly just one day after Tiger King‘s release, Chaiklin touched on the possibility of a Season 2: “I mean, yes we have a crazy amount of footage and it’s a story that’s still unfolding. We’re not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it, and it’ll be just as dramatic and just as colorful as what has unfolded these past few years.”
Even if a new episode does come together for release in the next week or two, it’s still unclear what the episode would cover. A reunion episode, an update following the events of episode seven, a tell-all episode, or even an interlude between seasons all seem like distinct and logical possibilities.
Tiger King is available to stream on Netflix right now. You can watch Lowe’s, uh, interesting video tease below.
