Netflix stars are usually thrilled when their show is picked up for a second season; but, when it comes to the characters in Tiger King, nothing is normal.
The streaming giant Netflix recently announced that it was bringing the the wildly popular Tiger King series back for a second season with “more madness and mayhem.” But when it released a trailer featuring Carole Baskin, she sued.
Baskin was a prominent character in the breakout show as she battled Joe Exotic over allegations that he abused big cats in his personal zoo. Baskin runs a big cat rescue facility.
In new court filings, however, Baskin says she only consented to being featured in one show, not two, and she petitioned the court to stop Netflix from airing the new season.
Luckily for Netflix viewers, the judge quickly dismissed the case, according to reporting from NPR. “While the Court understands the Baskins’ frustration, it does not appear that inclusion of Defendants’ footage of the Baskins will cause any immediate harm that cannot be compensated with monetary damages,” wrote U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington.
