In 2019, he was convicted of 17 charges of animal abuse and two counts of murder for hire, and was later sentenced to 22 years in prison.

Joe has maintained his innocence and continues to file appeals for his charges, with one appeal suggesting that he was the victim of corruption and discrimination as he is "an openly gay male with the largest collection of generic tigers and crossbreeds."

We don't know yet what exact line the second series will follow but we're sure it will check in with Joe Exotic, especially as he's shared a picture of himself while in prison recently.

The directors of the second series are Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin with the two also acting as executive producers alongside Chris Smith and Fisher Stevens.

The announcement comes after the news that the cast for a new Tiger King series recreating the events has been revealed - and it sounds like it's going to be a gripping watch!

The upcoming series, provisionally titled Joe Exotic, will star Dennis Quaid as Rick Kirkham - the producer on Joe's reality show who featured in the Netflix doc, Tiger King.

Kate McKinnon has been announced to play Carole Baskin, meanwhile John Cameron Mitchell is set to star as the tiger king himself, Joe Exotic.
