Update on Lucha Underground from its Executive Producer

Here’s the money quote from executive producer Eric Van Wagenen

> There is very little doubt in my mind about the “if”. I’d say its a 99.9% chance that a second season is happening. LU is a partnership, and each of the partners are committed to making season 2 happen. The “To be continued…” at the end of UltimaLucha was not just us trolling you, it was more of a promise.

> The issues about money and production costs are indeed real, although vastly overstated. We didn’t spend $20 Million – not even close. El Rey is the one of the best networks I’ve ever worked with, but what they have to spend doesn’t quite cover the costs of a show like Lucha Underground. So our choices are to either 1. Raise the money from another source, or 2. Make the show cheaper.

I guess this makes me feel a little better, but I still wish there would be an official announcement. I am anticipating that we won’t be seeing any new *Lucha Underground* in 2015, however.
