The oft-reported second AEW television show on TNT is still coming, but it won't be Dark.
AEW's existing web series will remain a YouTube property going forward. Company President Tony Khan confirmed this during today's All Out media call, answering a question from PWInsider's Mike Johnson regarding the status of the upcoming show.
Recently-departed WarnerMedia executive Kevin Reilly had previously suggested that AEW's second TNT show could be Dark, though Khan wrote this off as a miscommunication and a misunderstanding. He said that he was never going to think about bringing the web series to television, adding that it is doing "very, very well" on YouTube at the moment, having increased its average viewership since on the onset of the global health crisis.
As far as when the second TNT show will debut, Khan said it'll definitely be sometime within the next year. He was unable to offer a more specific date as there is still a lot of market research to be done, with the health crisis slowing things down considerably, but promised it'll arrive before 12 months have elapsed.
Last week saw Dave Meltzer report talk of putting the second show on the HBO Max streaming services, not TNT, though Khan wasn't asked about this.
