What's the song in Tiger King season 2 trailer? Fans aren't wild about it


Fans can’t contain their excitement as the trailer for Tiger King season 2 dropped, but, they’re not as wild about the song choice.

Tiger King 2 arrives 17 November

Throwback to the early days of the pandemic filled with Among Us, Fall Guys, Tiger King and the Chloe Ting Challenge.

One of them will be making a return this November: Tiger King, the true crime docuseries that unexpectedly became a most-talked about show by 34.3 million people.

The show was so popular that memes and Halloween 2020 were inspired by Joe Exotic and his controversial rival Carole Baskin.

As expected, the trailer has promised new levels of mayhem and drama as Exotic is serving time for hiring two hitmen in a plot to murder Baskin, as well as 17 wildlife charges.

The trailer shows him blasting the other members of the show for profiting off his feud with Baskin, while he does jail time: “Everyone from the zoo is out there making money and I’m paying the price for every one of them people.”

Music is key in film and TV, and in this case, the trailer song undoubtedly heightens the drama as the singer belts her out notes. If you couldn’t see the video, you’d think it’d be for a musical.

What’s the song in Tiger King season 2 trailer?

No wonder the song sounds so old school, the track is Maybe This Time from Cabaret the musical. Released in 1972, the song is performed by iconic actress Liza Minnelli.

Fan are here for the show, not the song

As with every show, there will legions of fans and legions of haters. To be honest, we’re not judging if you’ve decided to cleanse your life of Tiger King; memes were plastered everywhere on the internet and it probably gives flashbacks of the first lockdown.

Cabaret and Liza Minnelli fans are especially offended by the Netflix show, thanks to their choice of music, which one user has labelled it “a hate crime” – pretty extreme stuff here.

The song choice might actually be a way a reel in musical fans, which clearly it has:

Meme alert

Speaking of memes, the trailer only just dropped and fans have already begun posting their best reactions, so here are some of our favourites.

There will be more as the show premieres, so you might as well embrace them.
