In a rant on the flamboyant TV personality's Facebook page, an author who appears to be Joe says he needs to "unload for a minute" about all the other stars of the show, who have since made a name for themselves.
He then launches into a super long tirade about Saff, Jeff Lowe and another apparent staffer called Gary D, who he accuses of stealing his late partner Travis' ashes. (Seriously it's mad. Give it a read.)
But as dramatic as the whole rambling statement was, it's what he said in the middle which really pricked our ears up.
While complaining about everyone close to him taking what's his, the statement added: "Now Gary D is being paid for interviews for the 2nd season of Netflix Tiger King."
This isn't the first time we've heard whispers of a second Tiger King season, but hearing it from Joe Exotic (or, at least his Facebook page) seems markedly more solid.
He's currently serving time in jail for the murder-to-hire plot against Carole Baskin, though, so how he managed to post on his feed is a bit of a mystery.
While some posts on his page appear to refer to him as Joe, as if they are being written by a loved one, other more recent statuses are anecdotal, and use the word 'I', leaving fans with little other option but to assume they're from the man himself.
Tyla has contacted Joe for comment.
It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that a second season could be on the cards, of course, given what a global sensation the first instalment was.
The series offered up so much unanswered conspiracy that could be explored in a second season, while the other big cat park workers - including Doc Antle of Myrtle Beach Safari, ex drug kingpin Mario Tabraue, and subsequent owner of G.W Zoo, Jeff Lowe - deserve series' in their own right.
Not long ago, show runners on the Netflix docu-series also hinted that there was more to come.
"I mean, yes, we have a crazy amount of footage and it's a story that's still unfolding," co-director Rebecca Chaiklin told Entertainment Weekly.
"We're not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there's a lot that's still unfolding in it, and it'll be just as dramatic and just as colourful as what has unfolded these past few years."
She added to IndieWire: "We were blessed in this project in having subjects that were obsessed with filming themselves. Narcissism was a common thread, and all of them constantly wanting to be on camera was every filmmaker's dream.
"Honestly, there was so much archival that we probably, to this day, have not watched every second of it because it was so overwhelming."
Fingers crossed this means we'll be seeing more from the Florida zoo and its occupants very soon.
