Will Shark Tank be back for another season? This week, ABC announced they are holding an open casting call for the series in April.
The program showcases entrepreneurs seeking investments from a group of savvy (and sometimes cutthroat) millionaires. The regular “sharks” are Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner.
While ABC has not officially announced a season nine renewal for Shark Tank, the casting call announcement heavily suggests there will be another season. The open casting call will be held at NY TechDay on April 18th.
