Vice has renewed Dark Side of the Ring for a third season. The renewal is more of less of a formality, as we have already already heard details about upcoming episodes.
The show has performed well for Vice with season two topping the premiere season. The Wrap wrote the following about the renewal:
“‘Dark Side of the Ring’ is a knockout show for Vice TV. The tag-team executive producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener are true heavyweight champions of the world (of TV), and we are so excited to pin down a third season of this incredible series,” said Morgan Hertzan, executive vice president and general manager of Vice Television. “Seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Dark Side of the Ring’ are examples of the compelling, thought-provoking, and engaging storytelling we champion here at Vice TV. We can’t wait to see what the series will throw down in the third round!”
Season three will feature 14 episodes. Eric Bischoff has already been interviewed about Brian Pillman and the WCW/New Japan Collision in Korea show in Pyongyang, North Korea in 1995. One episode is set to feature the wrestling family of Grizzly Smith, who was the father of Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Rockin’ Robin and Sam Houston.
Season three of Dark Side of the Ring will premiere in 2021.
