The first trailer for 'Tiger King 2' teases more more madness and unlikely alliances
  • Netflix dropped the trailer for "Tiger King 2," the sequel to last year's docuseries.
  • Clips hint at storylines surrounding Don Lewis, Carole Baskin, and Joe Exotic.

Netflix just dropped the first trailer for "Tiger King 2," and viewers can expect more chaos, backstabbing, and, of course, tigers in the second installment of the series.

"When you think you've seen it all, you haven't quite seen it all," a voiceover in the trailer teases.

Clips from the upcoming season include phone calls from Joe Exotic's jail cell.

"Everybody from the zoo is out there making money, and I'm paying the price for every one of them people," Exotic, whose real name is Joe Maldonado-Passage, can be heard saying.

The first season, out on Netflix in March 2020, followed Maldonado-Passage as he worked at his private zoo in Oklahoma, ran for office, and was ultimately sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2019 for plotting to kill his rival Carol Baskin.

The trailer hints that the new season will dig deeper into Exotic's plot to kill Baskin and try to uncover the mystery of Don Lewis' disappearance.

Maldonado-Passage sought pardons from both former president Donald Trump and president Joe Biden earlier in 2021 before his 22-year-long prison sentence was vacated by a federal judge in July. Although his sentence was vacated, his convictions were upheld and Maldonado-Passage will be resentenced, according to the court filing.

While seeking pardon from Biden in May, Maldonado-Passage revealed on Twitter that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and called on the politician to sign his release so the former zoo owner could "go home and get proper medical care and food."

Four months prior, when he was unable to secure a last-minute pardon from Trump, Maldonado-Passage argued in a Twitter rant that he was "too innocent and too GAY" for a presidential pardon.

He added: I only mattered to Don Jr. when he needed to make a comment about me to boost his social media post. Boy were we all stupid to believe he actually stood for Equal Justice? His corrupt friends all come first."

Season 2 will be released on Netflix on November 17.
