From the Lucha Underground rumour mill: Lucha Underground over for good?
What's the story?
Lucha Underground is airing their third season, and there could be no season four. Wrestling News reported on Bryan Alvarez's comments on Wrestling Observer Live, where he discussed the possibility of Lucha Underground ending for good.
In case you didn't know....
Lucha Underground is currently airing their third season. Due to their setup, they shoot all their shows in a short period and the actual airing of the episodes takes place down the road. This leads to strange situations where performers from the show are seen in other promotions. Since the start of the third season, Rey Mysterio and Penta El 0M both left the company, and Johnny Mundo currently works for GFW as Johnny Impact.
The heart of the matter
Bryan Alvarez talked about where Lucha Underground may head on Wrestling Observer Live, and speculated on it ending forever. He talked about the difficulties, with no fourth season being talked about or taped at all.
“Ultima Lucha is coming up, we only got a few weeks left of Lucha Underground and then maybe it goes away forever.”
He went on to say the following:
“There is no fourth season taped, there’s no fourth season that is being talked about being taped.”
He also talked about the things that Lucha Underground would have to do to continue in the fourth season.
“So if we’re ever gonna see it again first they have to tape the season, then they have to edit the season, and then they have to put the season on television. So one way or the other Lucha Underground’s got about four weeks left for the foreseeable future."
Let's hope that this foretelling of doom is just guesswork and that Lucha Underground has the ability to survive and thrive.
Right now there is almost no talk about a fourth season. The 100th episode of Lucha Underground aired and was well received. With the third season almost done, the fans will have to keep an eye out for any rumour of a fourth season. As for now, that is all there is.
The style that Lucha Underground offers is completely different from anything else in wrestling right now, and their variety keeps the wrestling world broad. With rumours of there being no fourth season, Lucha Underground may actually be ending. In that case, it is one of the biggest losses to the wrestling universe and Lucha Underground fans.
There is nothing to do but hope that the El Ray Network help them come back for another season.
