Lucha Underground is about to be in your homes in a big way.
Court Bauer spoke to WrestleZone, and mentioned that Lucha Underground will appear on Netflix this month, with 65 episodes being added. This greatly expands Lucha Underground's reach past just the El Rey Network.
“The Netflix deal is an extension of Lucha Underground’s broadcasting distribution model. Netflix will air Season One and Two with an opportunity to air future seasons thereafter on Netflix that have already aired on El Rey. Lucha Underground is not moving their programming exclusively to Netflix. This is just like any show on CW or NBC taking an earlier season or more and distributing it through digital platforms such as Hulu or Netflix. Lucha Underground is not for sale to the best of my knowledge. El Rey is very happy to the best of my knowledge with the series. It’s cornerstone programming that’s outperforming everything on the network. El Rey remains a minority partner in the venture which gives them a truly vested interest in seeing this succeed. The Netflix deal will bring Lucha Underground to additional regions beyond North America that will be revealed at a later date.”
Speaking of El Rey, Lucha Underground posted an image on their Facebook highlighting "5.31.17," which seems to indicate they'll return for the second half of their season on May 31.
It's worth noting that Prince Puma/Ricochet confirmed with SoloWrestling this weekend that his contract has expired with Lucha Underground.
