Netflix has confirmed that a new episode of docu-series Tiger King will land on the streaming platform this weekend.
Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness captured the imagination of many last month, when it first appeared on Netflix.
The bizarre characters and goings-on in the big cat world turned the seven-part series, which focused heavily on the life of Joe Exotic, into an instant hit right at the point when the majority of the world prepared to stay at home for long periods of time.
There had been rumours in recent days that production was underway to rush out an eighth episode in order to capitalise on its popularity.
And Netflix has now confirmed that on Easter Sunday, viewers will be treated to a special after-show called The Tiger King and I.
