It's likely that the show will pay tribute to zookeeper Erik Cowie, who sadly passed away earlier this month.

Cowie was one of the main caretakers at Exotic's Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park and was cited as the head keeper of the Big Cats.

Among others, Cowie testified against Exotic in court, saying he'd seen him order animals who weren't sick to be shot and killed.

However, even after Exotic was thrown into jail, he continued to work for the GW zoo.

Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park paid tribute to the Cowie their Facebook page, with a post which read: "It comes with great sadness to say that a dear friend and hard working employee has passed away.

Erik Cowie dedicated every waking moment caring for the animals at GWEAP & Tiger King Park.

"After the animals were ripped away by the Department of Justice, he sadly couldn’t take it anymore. He absolutely loved all the animals and would show up early to check on each and everyone.

"He had his Demons but the animals helped bring joy and happiness in his life."
