‘Tiger King’: Where Are They Now? By: Paige Kindlick December 20, 2022 7:04PM EST 1 of 6 Joe Exotic Netflix The latest Netflix obsession is Tiger King, a documentary series based on a group of big cat enthusiasts with wild, and sometimes controversial, lives. The show began filming in 2014, and ended in January 2020 with the conviction of Joe Exotic (seen here with one of his tigers), who attempted to murder fellow cast member Carole Baskin — who has an allegedly checkered past herself. While Joe remains in prison, and Carole continues to advocate for big cats, and deny her involvement in the 1997 disappearance of her first husband, the other cast members all have wildly different fates. Scroll through this gallery to find out what life after Tiger King is like for the entire cast: Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin, Jeff Lewis, Doc Antle, and Rick Kirkham.
