The original title of this post was going to be "Update on the Cluster*** known as Lucha Underground. Because over the last few months we as fan have heard so many different stories about the possibility of another season for the El Rey Network show that nobody is really what is going on. However, now we may have a clear cut answer as Eric Van Wagemen who is a producer for the show was actually a guest on "Wrestling Compadres Podcast" recently & confirmed that a new season would happening. Currently the thing that seems to be holding up the announcement of an official start date for season 2 is the ability of getting the money together to begin filming.
Last season the total cost topped out at nearly 20 million dollars to produce the show which is insane for a company the status of Lucha which now it is understandable why it is taking so long for season 2. The cost of editing the show and creating vignettes aren't cheap and apparently El Rey is great to work with but just can't afford to give Lucha the same amount of money that other networks might able to. Right now the expected return to TV is pegged to be sometime in January, either way at this point don't expect to see Lucha Underground back on your TV until 2016.
Just when we think things are going to be totally clear something else pops up and that becomes the wildcard or the unexpected problem. Which seems to have lead to the never ending question of will Lucha Underground be able to start filming again or will the expense just be to much for them to bear.
