Jeff Lowe has said that a new Tiger King episode might be coming to Netflix, but the streaming giant hasn’t yet confirmed that this is happening. Still, the news is likely going to generate a lot of excitement among people who have become obsessed with the show while sheltering in place.
Lowe Said the Episode Will Be on Netflix Next Week & They’re Filming on April 5
Jeff Lowe, who now runs the GW Zoo that was at the center of the documentary series, shared the exciting news on a video posted by Justin Turner to Twitter. Turner wrote: “So our friend @christie_dish listened to the podcast, @HoldingKourt and after last weeks episode decided to send us this!!!”
Turner and his wife Kourtney founded the Justin Turner Foundation that helps homeless veterans, children, and others battling life-altering illnesses. Turner is a professional baseball player with the Dodgers.
In the video, Jeff Lowe said that they’re filming the new episode on Sunday, April 5 and the episode will be released on Netflix next week. An exact date and time were not revealed.
It’s important to note that Netflix has not yet confirmed this news. The only information revealed so far has come from Jeff Lowe.
Lowe said in the video above: “Hey Kourtney and Justin, this is Jeff and Lauren from the Tiger King show on Netflix. Thank you for watching the show. Christie said you’re a big fan and… You need a life. You just wasted seven hours on us. Take care guys, we love you, Netflix is adding one more episode. We’ll be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow. Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on.”
The Lowes have had a lot to say since Tiger King released on Netflix. Here’s a post they shared on the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park’s Facebook page. They haven’t yet posted anything on Facebook talking about the new episode.
Overall, we think they did a good job. A little sensationalism here and there, but for the most part it was a decent Readers Digest version, telling the story of a sick, twisted animal abuser. Joe Exotic.
When I agreed to be involved in this docuseries I was slightly concerned that my Son’s Of Anarchy lifestyle might be too much for the average person to handle. I make no apologies for living my life to the fullest extent. But those concerns completely vanished when I saw the segment on Doc Antle, Joe’s Messiah and role model. Even I was like WTF?
Regardless, Lauren and I remain committed to the care of hundreds of animals who rely on us to keep them safe and healthy. It has exhausted the small fortune I once held, I even sold my Ferrari to help build our animals larger enclosures. But I wouldn’t trade our lives with any Hollywood star.
We have some incredibly generous supporters. We’re doing great and when this Coronavirus crap has passed, we will ramp things back up.
I will always believe that our biggest contribution to the animal kingdom was helping the feds take down monsters like Joe Exotic and Tim Stark. No zoo we could ever build will have the positive impact of taking out the nation’s largest tiger cub traffickers.
Thank you all for your continued support. Lauren and I are forging on, everyday to complete a new facility that can provide our animals with more space, far away from “The Curse of Joe Exotic.'”
On March 11 they posted: “Coming March 20, 2020. Watch the Netflix docu series that shows how one couple who loves animals took out the World’s largest wildlife trafficker. PETA couldn’t do it, the USDA couldn’t do it. Watch how we helped the US Government take him down forever. After you see the lurid story, come visit the zoo and see where it all took place. But most importantly, come see how healthy and happy all the animals are, now that the horrible abuser rots in Federal Prison. Since we took over, the zoo has spent thousands upon thousands getting every animal the medical treatment and proper diets that greed robbed them of. We defy anyone to find a mistreated or neglected animal here. We are one of the few zoo owners in America with a spotless USDA history.”
