A new episode of Netflix's smash-hit documentary series Tiger King is rumoured to be in the works, but one of the show's stars definitely won't be returning for it.


Animal rights activist and Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin, who was the target of a murder-for-hire plot by former zoo owner Joe Exotic, will not appear in any future episodes of the series.

A representative for Baskin told Entertainment Weekly: "We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked."

She has previously spoken out about her dissatisfaction with Tiger King, calling it "salacious and sensational," taking particular issue with how it handles the topic of her missing husband, Don.

Reports of a new episode of the series are yet to be officially confirmed by Netflix, but Exotic's former business partner Jeff Lowe has claimed that it is going ahead for a release date in the near future.

Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for hiring somebody to kill Baskin, recently giving an interview from his cell where he claimed to be "done" with their feud.

A sequel of sorts to Tiger King is in the works at US broadcaster Investigation Discovery, which promises to dig deeper into questions asked by the original series, including what exactly happened to Baskin's missing husband.
