The rumour mill started when Jeff Lowe, a zoo owner who appears in several episodes of the show, sent a video to Los Angeles Dodgers player Justin Turner, in which he says: "Netflix is adding one more episode. It’ll be on next week."

Netflix haven't confirmed whether the rumours are true, but it is thought that there could be a 'where are they now?' style episode on the cards.

Tiger King tells the true story of the war between Joe Exotic, owner of a big car zoo, and Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, who was trying to take him down.

Joe was sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2020 for his alleged plot to kill Carole, as well as other wildlife violations.

Carole tried to stop him breeding the animals, and the two became enemies - which is said to have led him to plot to kill her, something he was later imprisoned for.

Joe is currently only three months into his 22 year sentence, but maintains his innocence.

In a recent statement, he said: "I still maintain my innocence and look forward in the upcoming days to my attorneys filing my appeal and moving on to the next step in this nightmare.”
