'Tiger King: Murder, Madness and Mayhem' is the docuseries that has been everyone's quarantine obsession for the last few weeks since it came out. Although it has tons of fans, with many celebrities among them, Larry David is not one of them. The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star had some characteristically critical words for the show, but on the other hand, it looks like he will be missing out on a potential new episode, which could air as early as next week.

Why Didn't He Like It?


David explained why he couldn't watch 'Tiger King' and, honestly, it kind of makes sense. "I found it so disturbing," he told 'Indiewire'. "The lions and the tigers just really scared the hell out of me. They were going to attack somebody. They were going to kill somebody. I didn’t want to see them attack and those people were just so insane, I couldn’t watch it." David, of course, isn't the only one who dislikes the show. Carole Baskin, one of its central characters, called Netflix out for its "salacious and sensational" storytelling.

What Is 'Tiger King' About?


For the few who are not completely obsessed, 'Tiger King' follows Joseph Maldonado-Passage, AKA Joe Exotic, who used to run the WG Zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. The series told the story of his relationships with the big cats, his three husbands (two of whom he was married to at the same time), and of course, his bitter rivalry with Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cast Rescue. Exotic accused Baskin of murdering her former husband, while he himself is in prison for attempting a murder for hire plot against her.

We Are Getting A New Episode


As any fan can agree, the whole story was way too crazy for just seven hour-long episodes. Jeff Lowe, an important player in the 'Tiger King' saga as the new owner of Joe Exotic's zoo (and with a checkered past himself) tweeted a video of himself announcing a new episode of the series, to air on Netflix as soon as next week. He made the video in response to news that Los Angeles Dodgers baseball player Justin Turner's wife, Kourtney Pogue, discussed the show on her podcast, 'Holding Kourt'.

"Thank you for watching our show, Christie said you're a big fan, and, yeah, you need a life," Lowe said in his video. "You just wasted seven hours on us." He also gave us some details about what exactly is going on with the video, like when it will air. "Netflix is adding one more episode, we'll be on next week. We're filming here tomorrow." Looks like Netflix has smartly capitalized on the hype over the show, and is giving fans what they want.
