The Chief Creative Officer of El Rey, Skip Chaisson, recently spoke with IGN at the TCA summer press tour and remarked that the chances of a fourth season for Lucha Underground are looking better. Chaisson stopped short of confirming that a fourth season had actually been ordered but said the show “looks good.” He said that there was discussion at the network about where to place the show on the schedule moving forward, and he added that that he is among those at El Rey who love the show and "we can't wait to get back into it."
“I can’t emphasize enough just how giving the wrestlers are and just working with Eric (Van Wagenen, Executive Producer) and Chris (DeJoseph, Co-Executive Producer) – it’s just so much fun. It’s really tough to shoot, but everybody just gives so much because, for the wrestlers, it’s a different thing for them. Because they are wonderful stage performers but here they get to do stuff they don’t normally get to do, and extend the story and the character. They get to film really cool fight scenes and some have effects. It’s like play time. It’s long like any shoot, but it’s really fun. The wrestlers give 150%.
“The whole experience is just an awesome amalgam. Everybody really likes it and we can’t wait to get back into it.”
Lucha Underground returned from its mid-season hiatus on May 30 and season 3 is expected to last until September.
