Everyone stay calm, but Netflix has confirmed that an extra episode of true crime documentary series Tiger King is coming and it’s happening this weekend!!

The new episode will be called “The Tiger King and I” and will feature brand new interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.

The episode was confirmed on Twitter with a teaser trailer from Joel McHale, who has been confirmed as the host.

The news was prematurely leaked earlier in the week by Jeff Lowe. In a personalised video requested by a viewer featuring himself and his wife Lauren, Jeff said: “Netflix is adding one more episode, will be on next week – they’re filming here tomorrow. Take care, stay safe and put your mask on.”

It has now been confirmed the extra Tiger King episode will air on Sunday of this weekend and is going to follow a reunion style format.

One of the biggest parts of the Netflix show is the ongoing feud between Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic. However, it looks like we might not get to hear the latest on this, as Carole has said she wants nothing to do with a reunion. Carole’s representatives told Entertainment Weekly: “We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked.”


The Tiger King and I will be available on Netflix on Sunday 12th April. Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is available to watch on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
