→ 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.
