Confirmed: Netflix is releasing a special ‘aftershow’ about The Tiger King
Netflix has confirmed we’re all getting an extra-special bank holiday treat, in the form of more Tiger King madness. It may not be a ‘follow-up’ as some headlines have suggested but it will offer us another glimpse into the madness that was the whole series
Who would have thought amongst all the Coronavorus madness, we’d get caught in another larger-than-life event? The docuseries about the man you couldn’t make up, Joe Exotic – has captivated the nation for various reasons. The country singing (not really though), tiger-loving, Carol-Baskin hating subject of Tiger King is an enigma who leaves many of us scratching our heads.
The animals, the memes (God bless them), the questions: did he really do it and did she really do it? has gotten more hype than the end of The Sopranos.
And just as it was announced this weekend that we must stay indoors for at least another three weeks, Netflix has confirmed that a brand-new, never-before-seen episode of Tiger King will land this Sunday, 12th April.
The Tiger King And I
The special aftershow hosted by comedian Joel McHale, will see many of the original Tiger King’s main ‘characters’ interviewed about their reactions to the show.
Joel interviews many of the main subjects from the series about their reactions to the show, as they bring fans deeper into the bizarre and amazing world of Tiger King. This time around, the colourful cast of characters will have a chance to tell their story directly, giving us inside info, opinions, and insight into the controversial series – made all the more intriguing since the series has ended.
Check out the trailer for Netflix’s The Tiger King And I below:
