For fans who can’t get enough of Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness on Netflix, don’t worry because there’s still more to come.
In a recent interview with Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show, Joe Exotic’s husband, Dillon Passage, phoned in and revealed some exciting news.
“It’s going to be a live episode, kind of like a reunion,” Passage said of the upcoming special.
However, Passage also confirms he will not appear in the special.
“Netflix didn’t contact me to [be] apart of that,” he added.
Cohen proceeded to ask Passage if Carole Baskin would appear in the special.
“I have no idea. It’s more like a talent interview. That’s how [the producer] described it,” he answered.
Jeff Lowe, co-star of the series, has also confirmed that one more episode of the series will be added this next week.
“Thank you for watching our show… You need a life; you just wasted seven hours on us,” Lowe said of the new episode in a clip uploaded to social media by MLB player, Justin Turner, after he and his wife Kourtney discussed the Tiger King series on her podcast. “Take care, guys, we love you. Netflix is adding one more episode that will be on next week. We’re filming here tomorrow.”
Baskin has also spoken out about the status of her appearance in the bonus episode in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday, stating, “We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked.”
In an interview with Netflix over the weekend, Joe Exotic talked about life after jail.
“You know, it would be nice if I could actually see me being famous out there, but I’ve seen these same four walls for a year and a half now,” Joe Exotic said. “I’m done with the Carole Baskin saga. It’s now time to turn the tables, and Joe get out of jail a free man and exonerated from all these charges.”
