LUCHA UNDERGROUND UPDATES ON FUTURE SEASONS

By Mike Johnson on 2016-07-25 12:26:00

As Lucha Underground has ended it's second season on The El Rey Network, we've received emails asking about the future of the series.

It should be noted that an entire third season has already been filmed and completed, which brings the series up to 100 episodes.   That's an important number as traditionally, that's the amount of episodes that syndicators look for when trying to license series internationally into different markets, because you are guaranteed a huge run of episodes.  The third season will debut later this year on The El Rey Network.

As far as a fourth season, we are told there are plans to do one and the hope is to film sometime late Fall/early winter as long as logistics are worked out.  One person told me they believed the series might begin filming again in November, but nothing is 100% confirmed in that regard. 

Meanwhile, Lucha Underground will be featured as part of an El Rey presentation of new Fall series at the Paley Center for Media in NYC on 9/10 at 5:10 PM, coupled with a screening of "From Dust 'Till Dawn."  Given the theme of the screening, this could very well be the first episode of the series' third season and would be the first time that episode is seen anywhere.  For more details on the screening, visit www.paleycenter.org.
