Fans looking for more pro-wrestling-related content can now check out Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion on The Disney Channel.

The first episode of Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion premiered on June 3 and it’s now available to watch for free on YouTube.

Here is a rundown on what to expect from the show:

J.R. Villarreal (“Akeela and the Bee”) has been cast as Cruz de la Vega, a luchador wrestling coach with the secret superhero identity “Black Scorpion” in Disney Channel’s new live-action comedy series “Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion.” The series (formerly titled “Ultra Violet & Blue Demon”) stars Scarlett Estevez (“BUNK’D”) as Violet Rodriguez, a Latinx teenager who is chosen by a magical luchador mask to be a superhero, like her uncle, Black Scorpion.

The series also stars Marianna Burelli as Violet’s mother, Nina; Juan Alfonso as Violet’s father, Juan Carlos; Brandon Rossel as Violet’s brother, Santiago; Zelia Ankrum as Violet’s best friend, Maya Miller-Martinez; and Bryan Blanco as Violet’s classmate, Luis León.

Eric Garcia and Leo Chu will be executive producers and showrunners on “Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion.” Joe Nussbaum, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit will also executive produce.

It’s unknown at this time if the show will be picked up for a second season. Despite being out for a few days, it currently has no reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

The show was initially announced as a vehicle for Blue Demon Jr., but he was replaced with the Black Scorpion back in August. No reason has been revealed why the change was made.
