AEW President Tony Khan did a conference call with the media on Thursday where he talked about a wide range of topics.
During the chat, he provided an update on the long-rumored second TNT show.
The show was first announced earlier in January, along with TNT picking up AEW Dynamite through 2023. Just a few days ago, Dave Meltzer reported that the show is still in the works, and it’s expected to debut before the end of the year.
The second AEW TNT show will NOT be AEW Dark. Tony Khan talks with WarnerMedia execs constantly. The second show will be launched within the next year, but he doesn't have a specific date. There's a lot of work left to be done.

Regarding the new #AEW show on TNT…
Tony Khan says the relationship with Turner is the lifeblood of their company. "Dark" is NOT going to TNT.
The new show will be launched within the next year, no date yet. Still more market testing to be done. #AEWAllOut

Tony Khan says he promises a second AEW show will be launched 'in the next year' but it will not be AEW Dark. That show will remain on YouTube. Says the pandemic has put it back a bit. [@MikePWInsider]
