You read that right. A sequel season to the docu-series that swept the nation during lockdown is on the way.

According to Deadline, Netflix announced the sequel within an announcement about other true-crime shows coming to the platform.

The outlet also reported that filmmakers have visited and spoken multiple times with Joe Exotic (also known as Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage né Schreibvogel) himself in prison.


If you don't remember, Joe's serving time in prison for a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin.

The first season of the show followed Joe Exotic and his band of misfits that ran the G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma.

Since the first season's release, Carole took possession of the G.W. Exotic Animal Park and closed it down.


Also worth noting is the unexpected and tragic death of a crowd favorite, Erik Cowie.

No release date for the new season has been announced yet, so keep an eye out for announcements.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
