This upcoming season of Lucha Underground begins tonight. Last season ushered in the return of Black Lotus and the end of the Temple as we know it so it’s fitting when we return tonight we’re now in a new location that will change the series.
LU has released this preview of tonight’s season premiere:
“Lucha Underground is back for a captivating new season and the matches and the high-flying action is nothing but ferocious and blood-pumping. With powerful new forces infiltrating the Temple, the outlook for humanity is bleak as the gods march ever closer toward war. A cataclysmic battle is on the horizon and no one will be spared from destruction. Prepare for battle this Wednesday, June 13th at 8:00PM ET on El Rey Network, as Pentagon Dark defends his Lucha Underground Championship for the very first time and Dario Cueto’s fate is revealed!”
#LuchaUnderground Champion Pentagon Dark has a message for the entire roster before the new season kicks off WEDNESDAY 8p ET on @ElReyNetwork! #luchalibre #prowrestling #wrestling #lucha #ceromiedo #pentagondark #action #tv #ridewithelrey @PENTAELZEROM pic.twitter.com/AJPaHv6dTj

Co-executive producer Chris DeJoseph talked about the upcoming season with ProWrestling.com. He said, “A lot of talents have improved and changed some things. At the same time, we brought some new characters into the show this season. That was cool. I think the locker room dynamic was great. It was great to have everyone back. Everyone was excited to back. It always seems that when they are at Lucha Underground, everyone goes into Lucha Underground mode and gives 110 percent. We banged out those shows, trying to make it creative and the most fun wrestling show possible. I don’t think the dynamic changed too much. Obviously, we missed Puma, but many have been there from day one. We built this show brick by brick together. I think once we’ve done that, everybody feels they’ve invested their time to making the show what it is. And for that we keep everyone on the same page.”
He also promises surprises, “I can tell you there will be lots of big surprises. Big characters. Some wrestlers you’ve seen before. Some big stars. And I think the action doesn’t stop where we left off. It’s craziness. It’s chaos. It’s Lucha Underground at its best. Be prepared for those days you’re sitting there watching the show and you’re left with your jaw dropped on the floor because you can’t believe that happened because you didn’t see it coming.”
