Here’s one for all you cool cats and kittens…

Is it just us or does it feel like the Tiger King hype happened a lifetime ago?

It was the eccentric yet gripping Netflix hit show which kept us sane through lockdown and now it looks as though the daring docuseries could be set for a season two.

The Sun has claimed that Joe has agreed to take part in a second series, along with his husband, 24 year old Dillon Passage.

Carol Baskin, however, has reportedly asked for a sum of "around the £1million mark" to take part in the second series.

A source told The Sun: "Carole is asking for a seven-figure sum. She wants to plough it into her Florida sanctuary, Big Cat Rescue. Taking part in Tiger King opened up her private life and she wants to make sure it’s worth her while."

Tiger King, which comes from the same producer that gave us FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, has all sorts of chaos thrown in, as we are introduced to a man named Joe Exotic who owned an Oklahoma-based animal park.

His real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage but he later changed his name to reflect his interests in exotic animals.

As well as Joe, we’re introduced to several other big characters who narrate the true story, from animal activist Carole Baskin, to fellow big cat lover and breeder, Bhagavan “Doc” Antle.

And it looks like all of our favourite Tiger King stars could return for the second episode, including Jeff Lowe who took over Joe’s zoo in 2016.

And on the topic of Jeff, it seems he too might be getting a spin-off show.

He told People: “It'll be our narrative on the Tiger King with evidence to support our sides of the stories. And it will be about the transfer of all these beautiful animals from Joe's facility to the new facility.

“And then the day-to-day struggle of running something as big as a 60-acre animal park and all the intricacies of the employment of zookeepers and fighting all of the animal rights groups."

It’s not yet known what exactly season two will focus on and Joe is still in prison, however we’re still over the moon at the thought of a potential season two.
