Zoo season 2 opens with most of the main characters — Jackson (James Wolk), Abraham (Nonso Anozie), Chloe (Nora Arnezeder) and Mitch (Billy Burke) — in Washington D.C. trying to escape a computer-generated zoo of predatory animals. They crash and separate. Jackson creates a firewall with leaking gas to hold back the animals and then floors the vehicle into a building, jumping out before impact. He ends up prone on the street at the mercy of a tiger.
Production filmed this sequence with a real tiger and a Jackson double in Vancouver’s Railtown district in late February.
The tiger sniffs Jackson and licks his arm where he was bitten by a dog but doesn’t attack. Why not? Is Jackson mutating into a predator too?
Filming in late February. The tiger is contained behind temporary fences.
Zoo airs Tuesday nights on CBS in the U.S. and CTV in Canada.
