Baskin claims she did not agree to appear in the upcoming sequel, as she only signed on to participate in the first series and producers are repacking old clips that didn’t make the first cut for the new Tiger King installment.

Tiger King 2 coincides with the animal activist working on a new series of her own where she looks to take down her nemesis Joe Exotic once and for all.

Baskin was awarded the zoo after Exotic — real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage — was sentenced to prison for plotting to kill her and for violating the Endangered Species Act. He is currently locked up in Fort Worth, Texas, serving out a 22-year sentence.

The Texas native has enlisted Exotic’s niece, Chealsi, to provide “first-hand knowledge” of the zoo she grew up around as a child.
