While coronavirus had us stuck in our homes, we were all still living in peace a few weeks ago. However, Netflix made sure to disrupt our peace and have us losing our sleep over many unanswered questions about Tiger King. Now it is rumored that Tiger King’s reunion episode will release soon but without Carole Baskin.

Recently, Jeff Lowe and wife announced that Tiger King’s reunion episode is in the works
If you watch the show closely, it all went downhill for Joe Exotic when Jeff Lowe entered his life. After that, nothing was the same. Not only did he lose his Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, but he was also sent to prison for 22 years. However, Jeff Lowe did become one of the main people to be featured in Tiger King. Recently, he recorded a video with his wife, Lauren, for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseman, Justin Turner. In the video, he revealed that Tiger King’s reunion episode is underway and will be released next week. In a tweet, Turner wrote:
So our friend, Christie, listened to the podcast, HoldingKourt, and after last weeks episode decided to send us this!!! BREAKING NEWS FOLKS! There will be 1 more episode of Tiger King on Netflix.
🚨BREAKING NEWS FOLKS🚨

However, Carole Baskin will not be a part of Tiger King’s reunion episode
According to the reps of Carole Baskin:
“We have not been approached about a new episode and would not participate if asked.”
After the release of Tiger King, Carole Baskin expressed her disappointment over allegations of murder of her ex-husband, Don Lewis. In a lengthy post, she shared her reservations and said:
‘When the directors of the Netflix documentary Tiger King came to us five years ago they said they wanted to make the big cat version of Blackfish (the documentary that exposed abuse at SeaWorld). That would expose the misery caused by the rampant breeding of big cat cubs for cub petting exploitation and the awful life the cats lead in roadside zoos and back yards if they survive.’
It might be possible that Carole Baskin does not want to be a part of Tiger King’s reunion episode because of these allegations. Although Jeff Lowe has announced that it will be released next week, Netflix has not yet confirmed the news.
