Now that "Tiger King" has implanted itself as a near-constant fixture in the darkest recesses of your mind (your Twitter feed), Netflix has decided to up the ante. Tiger King will have an eighth episode premiering April 12th -- a wrap-up The Talking Dead-style after-show, hosted by Joel McHale.
On one hand, there are still a lot of questions left unanswered in the Tiger King Cinematic Universe. There's the matter of John Finley's new teeth. There's the matter of Joe Exotic's 94 million dollar lawsuit where he alleges he was 'singled out for prosecution because he "is an openly gay male with the largest collection of generic tigers and crossbreeds."' There's the fact that Jeff Lowe still owns the G.W. Zoo, despite having so many connections to nefarious activity that it would make Al Capone shit a cocaine brick.
On the other hand -- no show ever needs an after-show, but especially not this one. Honestly, we need a bit of a break before getting hit with by the avalanche of Tiger King content soon to crash on us -- like the Tiger King sequel about the disappearance of Carole Baskin's ex-husband., or the Kate Mckinnon's drama in the works based off of the "Joe Exotic" podcast, and whatever unholy hell Rob Lowe and Ryan Murphy are preparing to unleash upon us.
