Viceland’s Dark Side of the Ring wrestling docuseries has been renewed for a third season, as confirmed by Deadline. The network has given its biggest original a 14 episode order for its third season, up from ten episodes on season two and six episodes for its first run.

The show, which is co-produced with Crave in Canada, will return in 2021. The order comes after it was revealed in April that the network was looking for more episodes after it had become a “mega-hit” for the channel, according to Morgan Hertzan, EVP & General Manager. There is no official word on topics for the third season, but Grizzly Smith, Brian Pillman, and the joint WCW/New Japan “Collision in Korea” are said to be upcoming ones.

Dark Side of the Ring is produced by Vice Studios Canada and in partnership with Bell Media’s Crave. Evan Husney is the executive producer and writer for the series, Jason Eisener is executive producer and director. Vanessa Case, Catherine Whyte and Lee Hoffman are executive producers, Guillermo Garcia is senior executive in charge of production and Barry Davis is the series producer. Tara Nadolny is supervising executive.

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 Hertzan. “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.”
