Uproxx.com has published a new article offering a first look at the new “Temple” for season four of Lucha Underground airing on El Rey Network.
The article notes the old Temple for the first three seasons of the show is gone, and the new Temple is part of Union Central Cold Storage on Industrial in downtown Los Angeles, and official Lucha Underground photographer Louis has released several first look photos of the Temple.
Show producer Eric Van Wagenen had the following to say on the challenges of establishing the mood of the show in the new Temple:
“I think when you have to make your set a character, and that was one thing we were really good about doing with the temple, is that the temple became a character. This was a legitimate cold storage building for 67 years. It’s now been repurposed for a set. But if you look around you see that this was a place where they kept things cold and where they made ice. So if you start with that, and then build outward I think it makes everything much easier. And it feels authentic, and just walking around this place sets a certain mood.”
The article adds reservations for season 4 tapings go up tomorrow, so go follow @LuchaElRey for the official announcement and instructions. In a change from previous seasons, the show will be taping on Fridays as well as Saturdays and Sundays.
