Tiger King dangerous man Jeff Lowe jokes about not being in season 2. There doubtless won’t ever truly be a season 2 of the Netflix docu-series, regardless that it has change into required viewing since dropping on the streaming service earlier this yr. Coronavirus quarantining has in fact pushed a variety of the huge viewership for the present, as self-isolating people (together with well-known individuals just like the Kardashians, Dax Shepard and Dwayne Johnson) search to stave off boredom with bingeable programming choices.
Due to that vast captive Tiger King viewers, a number of figures from the sequence have change into instantaneous celebrities themselves, most outstanding amongst them the titular Tiger King aka Joe Unique (his precise actual title is Joe Maldonado-Passage). If Joe Unique is the “hero” of Tiger King (he’s at present in jail so his actions clearly weren’t significantly heroic), then the present’s two most important villains should be Carole Baskin, the lady Joe Unique was accused of desirous to homicide, and Lowe, the high-rolling Las Vegas determine who took over Joe’s Oklahoma massive cat sanctuary after he went off the rails. Unsurprisingly, each Baskin and Lowe have spoken out in opposition to the best way they’re depicted within the sequence, as has the present’s third “villain” Doc Antle.
No one needs to be the villain of the Tiger King story, so it’s no shock that Lowe has given indications he needs no a part of a hypothetical second season of the sequence. In a bizarre April Fools video posting (through B.W. Carlin), Lowe tells individuals to “watch season 2” regardless that he insists he and his spouse Lauren, who’s additionally within the clip, received’t be there. See the video within the house beneath:
It’s arduous to say how a lot of Lowe’s video is certainly severe, as he goes on a mini-rant in regards to the monetary disaster introduced on by coronavirus and talks about how capitalism will quickly be defeated by the united staff of the world, however given Lowe’s very capitalistic prior conduct it’s a protected wager he hasn’t truly change into a Marxist and is in actual fact trying to be humorous.
The one factor Lowe doubtless isn’t actually joking about is his reticence to be in any season 2 of Tiger King, after he was portrayed as a con artist who could have arrange Joe Unique for arrest in a bid to take over his zoo. In reality, the one one who appears truly glad about his depiction within the present is Joe Unique himself, however having him in any follow-up sequence received’t be simple both as he’s at present in jail after being discovered responsible on quite a few prices. The drama that made Tiger King such a success certainly is wealthy sufficient to warrant a sequel, nevertheless it’s removed from a certain factor that Netflix will have the ability to pull collectively a season 2 given the fallout from the docu-series and its many outrageous allegations.
