    Default Lucha Underground Coming To Netflix Soon!

    Melissa Santos was just live streaming on Instagram a few minutes ago and commented that Lucha Underground is very close to making a deal with Netflix and it should be finalized "soon". Just thought people would like to know.

    Pulled that from reddit, apparently Vampiro talked about it a while back.

    Good news for the sake of revenue.

    However, is there word on wether or not they'll be producing the show for nextflix? Or simply adding their old episodes to the Netflix library?

    Either way, good news. Revenue = Good.

    ABOUT FUCKING TIME!!!

    We don't get the show in Canada. It's nice to find something other than illegal streams to watch Lucha.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Vampiro was talking about a Netflix deal last year. I'd rather hear someone higher up confirm it if it's a thing.

    This. I'll believe it when it's actually confirmed it. There always seems to be news about Lucha Underground going onto Netflix news every couple of months and nothing ever comes from it, although it'd be great news if they could manage to get the show on netflix and get a much larger audience from it.

    Then again, it'll probably only be available to watch in America netflix, they need to get some kind of international deal so I can watch it legally

    Well they apparently aren't filming season 4 until 2018....

    but I'm amazed how many people are streaming illegally. I've been watching weekly on YouTube since season 1.

    NOTHING IS CONFIRMED, but there has been a LOT of talk making the rounds that Lucha Underground, as in the entire series, could be leaving El Rey and shifting over to Netflix. It is a story that has been talked about publicly over the last several days (specifically on a Konnan podcast appearance) but privately over the last week or two. I have been unable to get any sort of comment, one way or the other, about the status of the series. The plan was to film a new season before the end of the year, but nothing has been made official. El Rey has split the current season up with the idea that it would air towards the latter part of 2017, which was not the plan when it was filmed. The fact El Rey has canceled its flagship series "From Dusk 'Till Dawn" is telling in terms of their future plans in my opinion, but again, we will see what happens. There has been very little promotional support for LU this season and obviously no touring for the brand beyond a few shows in the Southwest, so the series has yet to morph beyond being a very different and fun TV series,
    Here's the latest from PWInsider.

    I want Lucha on Netflix. The fact that Canada doesn't have it yet, not even on the Fight Network, makes me sick.

    One thing we over look, if the first season, just by itself, gets on Netflix?

    It's gonna be a big deal. For many? It'll be their first introduction to the promotion. Will also draw in many Netflix subscribers who don't even watch wrestling because they'll get that email (NEW THIS MONTH! A fun wrestling show, critically acclaimed, blah Blah Blah!!!) and look at it out of curiousity.

    So even if it's not doing new episodes for the flix , big deal.

    – According to the latest edition of Court Bauer’s MLW Radio (via PWinsider), the first two season of Lucha Underground will debut on Netflix on February 15. The series had 39 episodes in Season One and 26 in season two. Bauer is a former WWE Creative Team member and promoter; he had worked for Lucha Underground last year and at had been involved in a push to get the series on the streaming platform. This news follows rumors that started last month, claiming that the series would be leaving The El Rey Network completely for Netflix. If it happens, Lucha Underground will be the first wrestling promotion/series hosted on the streaming service. Lucha Underground is currently in their third season, but are currently on a break as El Rey made the call to split and extend the season.
    There you have it. Good news.

    They wouldn't be the first wrestling promotion to be on Netflix since WWE had lots of stuff on there until they launched the Network.

    Having said that, this is great news. I've enjoyed Lucha Underground every time I've watched it, but am too lazy to keep up with it consistently. It being on Netflix, if it's available in the UK, will fix that for me.

    This was a goal for this company from pretty much day one. They did it in less than three seasons. This is a big f'n deal for LU. #LuchaNChill

    Does set the table to become the number two American promotion if they can get to the point where Netflix is actually paying them to create new episodes, not just air old ones.

    However, still a big deal if it's just airing old ones.

    That being said, with El Rey chilling on this promotion? We have to ask another very important question. If Netflix won't pay for brand new content? Will Lucha Underground Survive?

    Of course, Uk got shafted
