Over the weekend I posted about “Shark” Robert Herjavec posting on his Twitter account that ABC had ordered additional episodes of Shark Tank. It’s true. Kind of. The Wrap’s Josef Adalian gets to the bottom of it:
Over the weekend, one of the sharks tweeted that the network had renewed the show for a second season. But ABC insiders said: Not true.
Well, ABC still has three unaired episodes of “Shark” in the can. It’s also just agreed to use previously shot footage to put together two more episodes of the Mark Burnett/Sony-produced series, a network rep confirmed to TheWrap.
So, there will be additional episodes, but there wasn’t an order for additional production or any type of renewal, at least not yet.
