While a second season of Luhca Underground has yet to be confirmed, almost everybody in the company is under the impression that it will be happening. Lucha Underground currently has episodes taped through August, including the Ultimo Lucha 2-hour season finale that’s gotten rave reviews from fans who were in attendance.
The working plan is for season 2 episodes to keep a similar production schedule as last year, with the first episodes of the new season being taped in September and a late September/early October premiere.
Rey Mysterio and Alberto El Patron are expected to be the new faces of the promotion from a marketing standpoint, due to their star power in the United States in Mexico.
There is also talk of holding tapings on the road, with Texas being discussed as well as other locations in the south west. Production expenses remain a big issue for the promotion. While the show has been critically acclaimed, the ad revenue based on the current level of TV exposure is not covering their costs.
Lucha Underground continues to push for more TV deals, hoping to get on Univision in the United States and on Televisa in Mexico. A deal with Televisa would be a game changer, which would make Lucha Underground more accessible in Mexico than even AAA.
A deal with Univision would make Lucha Underground the number two national promotion in the United States, available in more homes than Impact Wrestling. Granted these would be Spanish-language broadcasts (El Rey continuing to air the English shows), but landing one or both of these new TV deals will be a huge victory for them.
