The founder of the Florida Big Cat Cathedral in the popular series Tiger King has accused Netflix and Productions of not using the upcoming series of interviews and images.

According to court documents, the new season is expected to begin in the United States on November 17.
Baskin said he felt that the interviews in his case were the first of its kind.

Maldonado-Passage is in jail after being accused of plotting to assassinate Ms. Baskin, according to the first series.
The appellate court reduced the sentence to 22 years.
He is being held at the Federal Prison in Fort Worth, Texas.
Maldonado-Passage announced last week that he had severe prostate cancer and asked people to pray for him.
