Tiger King’s Jeff Lowe reveals bonus episode could be coming to Netflix this week

Netflix's Tiger King has had viewers gripped since its release at the end of March, with many of us in lockdown binge-watching the entire series in a matter of hours.

After seven episodes of 'murder, mayhem and madness', there were many things left unanswered – what does Joe's mullet look like now he's in prison, what has happened to the GW Zoo now Jeff Lowe owns it, and where does Carole Baskin source her cat print wardrobe?

Now according to Jeff, who in the last couple of episodes was building a new zoo and planning to move all the animals, Netflix have been filming a new bonus episode that could be out as early as next week.

In a video clip sent to a fan, Jeff and his wife Lauren claim that Netflix will be releasing the new episode and were coming to film at the zoo this week.

It's unclear if this is the case, due to the coronavirus lockdown which has seen film and TV production put on hold, but Jeff is confident it is coming.

"Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow," he says after joking about viewers "wasting seven hours on us".

The announcement comes after news that the star of the show Joe Exotic had been hospitalised after contracting coronavirus in prison.

It was reported the 57 year old recently, who shot to fame in the UK a documentary about his life, titled Tiger King, was suffering from symptoms.

He is currently serving a 22 year sentence at a federal prison in Texas for 17 charges of animal abuse and two counts of murder for hire, but it is believed he has now been temporarily transferred to a prison medical ward as he battles the illness.

A report from American local news site Texoma's Homepage reads: "'Joe Exotic' from Netflix's 'Tiger King' docu-series has been transferred to a hospital after a fellow inmate tests positive for coronavirus."

Joe's 24 year old husband Dillon Passage recently admitted he was concerned Joe — real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage — would contract the deadly virus after some of his fellow inmates tested positive.

Dillon said during a radio interview earlier this week: "We speak like three to five times every day, but since he's been moved to this new facility, they are putting him on a COVID-19 isolation because of the previous jail he was at, there were cases. I've yet to speak to him since he moved."
