WWE fans will be thrilled to hear that there are more wrestling-themed episodes of “Biography” coming soon to the A&E network. In addition, WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures has been picked up for a second season. A third original series called “WWE Rivals” has also been greenlit by the network.
WWE touted the new deal in a press release this afternoon. The agreement will provide A&E with more than 130 hours of WWE-related programming in the form of series and specials. This includes 35 new episodes of “Biography” which became A&E’s most-watched program in 2021, largely due to the WWE content.
WWE president Nick Khan said the deal is a no-brainer. Khan noted that A&E had been a major partner and that his company is thrilled to be one of their biggest content providers. It is hoped that A&E becomes a destination for WWE fans looking for a fix when Raw and SmackDown are not airing.
“A&E is an amazing partner with an impressive lineup of signature series across its networks. The expansion of our partnership will allow us to continue creating a massive slate of new content with a trusted partner, while further establishing A&E as a destination for WWE fans for years to come.”
Previous “Biography” episodes included “Macho Man” Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, and more WWE legends. “Most Wanted Treasures” follows a hunt for some of the most famous, sought after, obscure, and lost memorabilia from the long history of the promotion. The WWE Universe will have plenty of new content to sink their teeth into.
WWE continues to look for buyers for its unique brand of content. Nick Khan stated on the recent quarterly earnings call that the company is open for business and willing to work with nearly anyone. The new A&E deal is the first step towards that plan.
