The hour-long weekly series currently in production in Boyle Heights, CA, will continue to bring fans ringside for blood-pumping, chant-starting, fierce lucha libre drama and excitement as the masked heroes and villains battle it out for wrestling supremacy. Leading into the new season, El Rey Network offers fans a chance to get reacquainted with the luchadores, who combine ancient tradition with extraordinary athleticism, with five hours of back-to-back episodes from season one on Wednesdays at 8pm ET/PT beginning January 6th, culminating with an epic weekend long, 40-hour marathon of the entire season from Saturday, January 23rd at 10 AM ET, to Sunday, January 24th at 2 AM ET.

“Season two of ‘Lucha Underground’ absolutely stands on the shoulders of last season with even more excitement and high-flying drama than ever before,” said El Rey Network Chairman and Founder Robert Rodriguez. “Mark Burnett and his team have delivered a truly compelling series and we are proud to bring the ancient traditions of Luche Libre to life in an unexpected and action packed format that has become a favorite for wrestling fans everywhere.”

Ancient tradition, extraordinary athleticism, and a flare for theatrics combine in El Rey Network’s wrestling series, “Lucha Underground”. The riveting original introduces American audiences to the high-flying aerial maneuvers, slingshot moves, dramatic masks, intricate, rapid-fire combinations and distinctive wrestling techniques of lucha libre, one of Mexico’s most popular sports. Fans will have a ringside seat as masked villains and heroes face off to battle for wrestling supremacy. It provides enthusiastic viewers with an incredibly visceral and explosive experience with a focus on the artistry, originality, intense action and over-the-top characters that has come to define this phenomenal fan-favorite. A celebration of lucha libre’s long-standing Mesoamerican heritage and culture dating back to 1863, this is programming that must be seen to be believed.
