As expected, Vice TV is bringing back “Dark Side of the Ring” for another season.
On Monday, The Wrap reported that the network has officially renewed the series for season 3. The series will be back with 14 episodes in 2021.
Dark Side of the Ring is the highest-rated show in Vice TV history.
“‘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!"
