Lucha Underground is gearing up for the filming of Season 4 and an exclusive report is noting that the show will be leaving its famous stomping grounds behind.
According to Uproxx, the Temple is dead. Long live The Temple.
The new location for the premier wrestling show will be Union Central Cold Storage on Industrial in downtown Los Angeles
There’s a bit of a “cold” motif happening this upcoming season, since they’re wrestling in a warehouse that formerly served as cold storage, so viewers will notice that color palate, Uproxx reports.
“I think when you have to make your set a character, and that was one thing we were really good about doing with the temple, is that the temple became a character,” said Eric van Wagenen, producer. “This was a legitimate cold storage building for 67 years. It’s now been repurposed for a set. But if you look around you see that this was a place where they kept things cold and where they made ice. So if you start with that, and then build outward I think it makes everything much easier. And it feels authentic, and just walking around this place sets a certain mood.”
Chris DeJoseph, co-excutive producer said the universe will branch out to different places and maybe some more new locations.
“And that’s a super exciting part about the show, and being able to go somewhere different and there’s all different new places to play around in here,” DeJoseph said. “More toys, more fun, and also it gives us a chance to put a little bit of a fresh coat of paint on the show … I think we always embrace the old history. But I think its cool to have a nice fresh coat of paint on something and have something new. We did pretty much everything we could at the old building.”
Lucha Underground’s twitter will also be updating fans this week as to when tickets for tapings will go on sale.
No word yet on which stars are confirmed to return for Season 4. However, the women’s roster saw Black Lotus return at the end of last season. She joins Kobra Moon, Taya, Ivelisse, and Mariposa. No word yet on if the show will continue using Sexy Star, if Catrina will be back since she’ll be filming a movie, or if ring announcer Melissa Santos will continue her post since she just gave birth.
