Netflix’sTiger King’ is a big hit for the streaming platform.

According to Nielsen and reported by Variety, the seven-part docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness drew 34.3 million total unique viewers in the U.S. over its first ten days of release (starting March 20).

Consequently, the show is arguably the second most popular series right behind ‘Stranger Things,’ which reached 36.3 million viewers.

Nielsen reveals ‘Tiger King’ was a late-hit reporting an “Average minute audience” of 280,000 viewers on the first day, but rising quickly to four million by Day 9.

Tiger King explores “the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners,” where “few stand out more than ‘Joe Exotic’ (aka Joseph Maldonado-Passage), a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country-western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo.”

The documentary begins to explore the murder-for-hire plot to kill Carole Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue, an animal sanctuary.

In relevant news, Netflix is reportedly filming new episodes of ‘Tiger King‘. On Saturday, news broke that the popular Netflix documentary series ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness’ will add a new episode. Justin Turner, from the Los Angeles Dodgers, tweeted the big news with a video featuring one of the show’s characters, Jeff Lowe. According to the New York Post, Lowe and Turner connected after the LA Dodgers baseball star mentioned the show on his wife Kourtney Turner’s podcast ‘Holding Kourt’.“Netflix is adding one more episode.
