Viceland officially announces 'Dark Side of the Ring' season two
Viceland’s “Dark Side of the Ring” is officially returning for a second season.
It was announced today that Viceland has picked up Dark Side of the Ring for season two. It will feature 10 hour-long episodes.
Dave Meltzer first reported last week that Viceland had reached a deal for season two of the docuseries.
“We were thrilled with the positive response to Dark Side when it debuted,” Viceland president Guy Slattery said. “The enthusiasm from fans and non-fans alike was contagious. We can’t wait to tell more of these stories.”
Evan Husney and Jason Eisener are returning as executive producers for the series.
The first season of Dark Side of the Ring premiered this April, with it airing over the course of six weeks. Randy Savage & Ms. Elizabeth, Bret Hart and the Montreal Screwjob, Bruiser Brody, Kevin Von Erich and the Von Erich family, Gino Hernandez, and Fabulous Moolah were the subjects of the initial set of episodes.
Viceland touted that Dark Side of the Ring “racked up the best premiere ratings in P18-49 and total viewers (P2+) of any series in the channel’s three-year history.”
The premiere date for season two has yet to be announced, though it was noted that production for the season is underway.
