Tiger King: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Tiger King: Season 2 (2021)




Critic Consensus: With nothing substantive to add save for a salacious celebration of its first season's success, this kitty has no claws.


Tv Season Info

Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats, and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe's arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (11)

The bargain-basement approach to true crime treats anything slightly odd as extremely significant without ever explaining what it's supposed to signify.

With a story that feels like it's being made up in the moment, Netflix's second season of Tiger King feels like a blatant grab for cash, hoping to snare all the people that watched the series during the pandemic.

Tiger King 2 offers a rather dull, and very sordid, attempt to exploit the scandals revealed in the first season, while showcasing how people are making the most of the publicity they generated.

You won't watch the series and feel good about America, about our species, or maybe even yourself. But you will be, once again, enthralled.

Reducing Tiger King to a fad does a great disservice to the narrative atrocity that is season two. There is more to this story, somewhere. Just not in these five episodes.

Basically, Tiger King 2 is all about the aftermath of Tiger King, but there isn't enough to justify a second spin of the wheel. What we're left with is a cheap, crass, lazy and extraordinarily pointless rehash of everything that's come before.
