The streaming service tweeted: “Tiger King is coming back this year - and Season 2 promises just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1!”

The true crime documentary was released in March 2020 and told the story of zookeeper and felon Joe Exotic.

It was a huge hit with viewers and was nominated for gongs at the MTV Movie & TV Awards and the Emmys.

Fans were thrilled to hear there is going to be another instalment.

“This does put a smile on my face,” posted one person on Twitter, while another told Netflix. “You just beat the Internet for today!”

“Can’t wait for this messiness,” said another.
