Tiger King spin-off documentary, Doc Antle, is coming to Netflix

Netflix's latest trailer reveals the first Tiger King spinoff featuring one of the show's most prominent characters, Doc Antle.


Now that the dust has settled on Tiger King season 2, it appears that Netflix isn't done with the popular and eccentric docuseries just yet. While a third season still isn't confirmed, one of the show's most entertaining characters, Doc Antle, is going to star in his spin-off, Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story.

You'd have to be a special kind of crazy to be able to tame wild animals and hug them on screen.

When is Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story going to drop?

It'll be interesting to see what else Netflix has in store for Tiger King fans.

After taking the world by storm during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and its lockdowns, the second season of Tiger King was a bit of a disappointment after airing last November 17. Nevertheless, there were still enough who paid attention to the follow-up season, which revolved around Exotic's followers and their reaction to his imprisonment as well as the disappearance of Carole Baskin's former husband, to warrant spin-offs.

Unlike the original Tiger King documentary, the three-part docuseries will revolve around Antle and the many accusations against the former zookeeper.

The trailer does a great job showing a glimpse of what kind of grounds the upcoming docu-series will cover, which will reportedly include how Antle mistreated his staff members and how he ran his whole operation like a cult.

Most might question if it was really necessary for Netflix to invest in another season of Tiger King let alone a spin-off. However, one cannot deny just how successful the first season was. Maybe Netflix is hoping to capture lightning inside a bottle twice by shifting the spin-offs focus from Joe Exotic and Carole Baskins to the show's similarly enigmatic and entertaining "side characters".

After a disappointing second season, it appears Netflix now wants to shed some light on the shady dealings that surrounded Tiger King. If the trailer is any indication, Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story is shaping up to be one hell of a show.

Thankfully, audiences don't have to wait too long to find out - Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story will premiere on December 10 on Netflix.
