We noted a few weeks ago that Lucha Underground is returning for a second season. Filming is expected to begin next month and it should begin airing next year. To cut costs, the season will be shorter than season one. We're told a set number of episodes haven't been decided on yet but they're talking about 60% as many episodes compared to what they did in year one.
The majority of Lucha Underground's talent is signed for several seasons but that isn't the case for their biggest name, Rey Mysterio. Mysterio is only signed for Season 2 and it will be interesting to see if he ends up back in WWE after that. Remember, Mysterio is believed to be interested but it's a situation where Vince McMahon will have to "forgive him" first.
