Netflix is ​​doubling down on “Tiger King” with a new batch of episodes, dubbed “Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story,” which premieres next Friday, December 10.

This one is packed with “shocking” accounts of the Doc Antle story that were discovered by the directors while filming “Tiger King 2,” the individual said. “Tiger King 2,” a continuation of the hit early pandemic documentary series “Tiger King,” premiered on November 17, along with an aftershow of “Tiger King” hosted by Joel McHale.
