VICELAND today announced that it has ordered a second season of the popular docs-series Dark Side Of The Ring. The announcement came at the Television Critics Association semi-annual Press Tour in Los Angeles by VICELAND president Guy Slattery.
The first season had the best premiere ratings in P18-49 and total viewers of any series in the channel’s three-year history. “We were thrilled with the positive response to Dark Side when it debuted,” said Slattery, “the enthusiasm from fans and non-fans alike was contagious. We can’t wait to tell more of these stories.”
The second season of the series will almost double the initial episode order, with 10 hour-long examinations of the collision of fantasy and reality and the stars’ larger-than-life characters in and out of the ring from returning executive producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener.
The first season had six total episodes and focused on Macho Man Randy Savage, the Montreal Screwjob, The Von Erich family, the death of Gino Hernandez, the murder of Bruiser Brody, and The Fabulous Moolah.
