Second AEW TV show expected to launch by end of 2020


In January, AEW announced an extension of their deal with WarnerMedia through 2023 that called for an addtional hour-long TV show to be created.

But with the pandemic, the company has had to figure out ways to keep producing Dynamite and Dark on a weekly basis and things have been quiet on the new show front. On the Sunday edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed the show is still in the works and expected to launch before the end of 2020.

At the time, the idea was the hour would be taped on Wednesday nights and would air on another night. The destination was thought to be TNT, but could be another one of the various Turner broadcast networks or even the HBO Max streaming service that is owned by WarnerMedia.

The four year extension is worth $175 million, just under $45 million per year. It gives WarnerMedia an option for 2024 at a significantly increased price.
