BROOKLYN, NY (April 8, 2021)–VICE TV, America’s fastest growing entertainment cable network¹, announced today that the record-breaking docuseries Dark Side of the Ring will premiere its third season on Thursday May 6th @ 9 PM ET/PT.
Dark Side of the Ring, VICE TV’s most watched show of all time², exposes the hidden, heartbreaking, and untold stories of professional wrestling with intimate access to its subjects. The series chronicles the deeply personal and often controversial legacies surrounding the larger-than-life brawlers of the wrestling world, in a sport that draws tens of millions of fans around the globe to this day.
This season will continue the rich storytelling that defined seasons one and two, exploring some of the most dramatic moments in wrestling history with a compelling cast of insiders, many of whom are baring their souls on camera for the very first time.
The season 3 trailer unveils just a fraction of this year’s enormous and star-studded cast, which will include Chris Jericho, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, Jon Moxley, Eric Bischoff, Jim Cornette, David Arquette and the former wife of Ultimate Warrior, Shari Tyree. It also teases six of the installments in this season’s 14-episode lineup; Brian Pillman, Nick Gage, Collision In Korea, Ultimate Warrior, Grizzly Smith and Dynamite Kid.
A formal series announcement revealing more of this season’s electrifying roster and explosive storylines will be released later this month.
Since VICE TV launched Dark Side of the Ring in April 2019, the series has entertained wrestling fans and newcomers alike with the biggest stories from the last 40 years, giving viewers unprecedented access to wrestling insiders and revealing the harsh truths and often tragic consequences of lives in the squared circle. In addition to being the network’s #1 show of all time, Dark Side of the Ring is also the #1 non-fiction series on networks in less than 70 million homes³. During its second season, the series reached a total of 15 million viewers⁴.
VICE TV, which announced last year it would be expanding the Dark Side franchise, is also debuting the very first teaser for its upcoming docuseries Dark Side of Football, which will explore the tension between America’s undying love of the game, and its ability to corrupt and damage those who live and die for it.
