Having teased a big announcement last week, WWE and A&E have announced that they are expanding their programming partnership.

This multi-year agreement will see more than 130 hours of new, original WWE content produced, airing exclusively on A&E's various platforms with worldwide distribution. 35 new 'Biography' episodes will be made as part of this, following on from the 'WWE Legends' run of the series becoming A&E's most-watched show in 2021.

On top of this, A&E viewers will get 24 new 'WWE's Most Wanted Treasures' episodes across multiple seasons along with a new series, 'WWE Rivals' (working title), which will encompass 40 hours and is due to focus on historic WWE rivalries.
