When Tiger King arrived on Netflix in March 2020, no one could have predicted just how much of a global phenomenon it would become.

But as its release coincided with the world going into lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the true-crime series became one of Netflix’s most-watched shows ever with the streaming service reporting that 64 million households viewed the show within its first month.

As the series was such a colossal hit, Netflix wasted no time in renewing Tiger King for season 2, which is due to release in November 2021, but just when is the release time of the new batch of episodes?

Tiger King season 2 plot

After Tiger King’s first season introduced the world to Joe Exotic and his long-running feud with Carol Baskin, season 2 dives deeper into the lives and backstories of these fascinating characters.

With Joe Exotic behind bars after being found guilty of paying a hitman to murder Carol Baskin, the latter closes in on ownership of Exotic’s zoo in the new season.

Meanwhile, season 2 also reunites us with Tiger King’s eclectic cast of characters from Jeff Lowe and Tim Stark to Allen Glover and James Garretson as newfound revelations emerge and the story takes yet more twists and turns.


Tiger King season 2 release time

Season 2 of Tiger King will be released on Wednesday, November 17th at midnight Pacific Time in the US.

Like most Netflix releases, Tiger King will be released at the same time around the world which translates to:

  • 12am PT in the US
  • 3am ET in the US
  • 8am GMT in the UK
  • 9am CET in Europe
  • 1:30pm IST in India

How many episodes in season 2?

Season 2 of Tiger King will consist of five episodes in total.

Sadly, the episode count for the new season is down from the eight episodes we saw in season 1 which consisted of seven chapters plus a special eighth episode.

In season 1, the episodes of Tiger King had an average runtime of 44 minutes each and we would expect something similar for season 2.
