Tiger King 2 (streaming 11/17)
No, we haven’t all jumped in some kind of time travel machine and crash-landed in the early days of COVID lockdown circa 2020. Instead, Netflix is recreating some of the pandemic pandemonium courtesy of another round of shady zoo owners, murderous big cat madames, and Joe Exotic — the Queer tiger-wrangling convict who, sadly, did not get pardoned by Trump. Season two of this wild docuseries will dive deeper into the underground exotic animal market while profiling the people who benefitted most from the Tiger King’s downfall.
