The massive popularity of Tiger King has the fans asking for more, and they just can’t wait for the release of Tiger King Season 3.
Tiger King: Murder Mayhem and Madness, or in short, Tiger King, is an American true crime documentary series streaming on Netflix.
It follows Joe Exotic, the founder of Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, and his million-dollar legal battle with animal rights activist Carole Baskin.
Tiger King Season 3 Release Date and Streaming Details
Tiger King Season 1 premiered on March 20, 2020, on Netflix. It had seven episodes and one special episode.
One and a half years later, Netflix announced the return of Tiger King, and Tiger King Season 2 was premiered on November 17, 2021. It had five episodes of 40 to 45 minutes each.
Though Netflix has yet to announce Tiger King Season 3 officially, it will probably be released sometime in 2023.
What To Expect From Tiger King Season 3?
Tiger King Season 3 will most likely show Joe Exotic’s fight to have his sentence reduced, as well as his battle with cancer.
Tiger King Season 3 will also explore the involvement of Allen Grover in the attempted murder plot of Carole Baskin.
Animal park owners and breeders Jeff Lowe and Tim Stark are deep in trouble and are fighting legal as well as financial battles, of which we will see more in Tiger King Season 3.
Carole Baskin’s ex-husband, Don Lewis’s disappearing case, is also likely to be highlighted in Tiger King Season 3 as Don’s family is unlikely to give up on his search.
Who Can We Expect To See in Tiger King Season 3?
In Tiger King Season 3, we are most likely to find Joe Exotic, his attorney, John Phillips, Allen Grover, Jeff Lowe, Lauren Lowe, Jeff Garretson, John Reinke, Ripperjack, and the daughters of Don Lewis, along with a host of new faces.
We can rule out the possibility of finding Carole Baskin in Tiger King Season 3 as she has already sued Netflix for using the footage of her and her husband, Howard, in Tiger King Season 2, without her permission.
Where Are The Characters of Tiger King Season 3 Now?
Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, the actual name of Joe Exotic, a self-made man, has tried his hand in multiple professions.
He has formally been a cop, a zoo owner, an exotic animal breeder, has released two country music albums, done online talk shows, and released his autobiography called “Tiger King: The Official Tell-All Memoir.”
Quite a controversial figure, Joe Exotic was found guilty of 17 federal charges of animal abuse and two cases of attempted murder-for-hire plots, which earned him 22 years of prison, which he is currently serving.
He has challenged the conviction in court.
Joe Exotic had allegedly hired men to kill the activist, Carole Baskin.
Joe’s love life is also no less controversial.
His first spouse, Travis Maldonado, accidentally shot himself on the grounds of Greater Wynnewood Park.
Later, Joe married Dillon Passage, and the couple seemed inseparable until Joe’s arrest. Dillon later announced that they were seeking a divorce.

His “Wildlife in Need” establishment was also raided, his license suspended, and his facility was dissolved.
He was also banned from owning or exhibiting any exotic animal.
He has declared bankruptcy and a court hearing about his assets is due in December 2021.
Carole Baskin decided to leave the show after the first season of Tiger King because she was not very pleased with her portrayal.
However, when Netflix still used some footage of her with her husband on Tiger King Season 2, she and her husband decided to sue them.
Netflix clarified before the court that their contract states that the streamer has rights to stream her footage in any future project as well, and Carole lost her case.
Presently, she runs Big Cat Rescue with her husband, Howard, and also has a documentary series of her own, called “Carole Baskin’s Cage Fight,” which runs on Discovery+.
James Garretson owns a water sports company in South Florida. He also maintains an Instagram account in which he mocks Carole Baskin that she has murdered her second husband, Don Lewis.

Along with his wife, he was arrested on DUI charges and sued for non-payment of rent. He also owes tax money to the State of Oklahoma and is a wanted man in Las Vegas.
Allen Grover was arrested for driving under the influence and on a suspended license in August 2021. He tries to avoid all sorts of public interaction.

Don Lewis’s three daughters, Donna Pettis, Lynda Sanchez, and Gale Rathbone, currently live in Dade City, Florida, where they are fighting to get justice for their father.
