"Tiger King" is coming back for a second season, Netflix announced on Thursday.

The streaming service said "Tiger King 2" - the second season of the hit docuseries that took the streaming world by storm in 2020 - will be released later this year, saying it "promises just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1."

Netflix did not reveal who would return for the second season, but the streaming service shared a photo of Joe Exotic calling from what appears to be prison as part of its announcement.

Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, has been in prison since 2020 after being convicted of animal cruelty and plotting to kill his rival, Carole Baskin.

Baskin founded Big Cat Rescue, and spent years calling for the shut down of animal zoos like Maldonado-Passage's, which kept tigers, lions, and other big cats in enclosures at an Oklahoma facility.

The second series of "Tiger King" was filmed between 2020 and 2021, according to CNN.

Directors of the first season, Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, also filmed the second, Netflix said in a press release.
