Remember Tiger King? Netflix’s eye-popping docu-series chronicling the drama surrounding the life, times and turmoil of zookeepers such as Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin and Doc Antle in the Southeastern region of the United States, was a BIG deal when it premiered way back in March 2020 (which only feels like years ago, given the state of things these past few months). If you haven’t seen it yet, you still can, of course — just be mindful of the controversy surrounding the program.

Well, the show’s back in the news for a reason you might not have expected. On Tuesday, the cast and details for the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars was revealed, and Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue is among the participants.

Yes, that’s right, Carole Baskin — the sworn enemy of Tiger King’s Joe Exotic and a principal figure in the series — is on the program.

Here’s a full video from Good Morning America announcing the new lineup, if that’s your sort of thing:

Per Variety, the rest of the cast and dancing lineup includes rapper Nelly, AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys, Monica Aldama from Netflix’s Cheer, Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, NFL Super Bowl champion Vernon Davis, Skai Jackson from Disney Channel, Catfish host Nev Schulman, NBA legend Charles Oakley, actress Anne Heche, Jeannie Mai of The Real and Selling Sunset real estate agent/star Chrishell Stause.

The professional dancers accompanying the celebrities this season include Brandon Armstrong, Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Cheryl Burke, Artem Chigvintsev, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Daniella Karagach, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Pasha Pashkov, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater and Britt Stewart.
