Beyond The Tank is an American reality television companion spin-off series on ABC, which follows up on aspiring entrepreneurs who made business presentations to a panel of potential investors on Shark Tank.[1] The show premiered on May 1, 2015, and was picked-up for 10 episodes, but only three episodes aired.[2] It was renewed for a second season on May 7, 2015,[3] which premiered on January 5, 2016, before airing in its regular time slot on January 7, 2016.[4] Additional episodes started airing in March 2016 after ABC cancelled Of Kings and Prophets.[5]

Premise[edit]

Each episode follows up with entrepreneurs who appeared on Shark Tank. The show does not focus exclusively on successful entrepreneurs; several segments have featured entrepreneurs whose deals with the "Sharks" failed, while others focus on entrepreneurs who did not receive investments.
