ABC will air five more episodes of Shark Tank

Shark Tank, the U.S version of Dragon’s Den, ended its first season a few weeks ago, but will air five more episodes–although those don’t constitute a renewal for the series.

Saturday, Robert Herjavec wrote on Twitter that there was “Great news ABC has ordered more episodes of Shark Tank.”

While the network hasn’t renewed the show, which grew in the ratings but did poorly relative to other shows in its timeslot, an ABC representative told the Wrap that “ABC still has three unaired episodes” and “just agreed to use previously shot footage to put together two more episodes.”
