As Netflix released the trailer on Wednesday, it is clear that the second season returns to the “murder, mayhem and madness” that characterized the first season. Viewers get to see the wealth behind private zoos in Florida and Oklahoma, as well as guns and, naturally, tigers.

What to expect from the second season?

According to Netflix, Tiger King 2 will reportedly examine how “sudden fame and unwanted attention from the authorities turns up the heat and unearths some stunning revelations.” It will cover the amazing wealth accumulated by the private zoos, particularly in the wake of the series’ revelations.

The trailer included below, includes a voiceover from an interview with Maldonado-Passage from prison. It also hints at a further investigation into the 1997 disappearance of Carole Baskin’s late husband, Don Lewis.
