So there’s some clarity now in the mystery surrounding the future of ABC’s "Shark Tank."

Over the weekend, one of the sharks tweeted that the network had renewed the show for a second season. But ABC insiders said: Not true. (Click here for the full story).

What’s up?

Well, ABC still has three unaired episodes of "Shark" in the can. It’s also just agreed to use previously shot footage to put together two more episodes of the Mark Burnett/Sony-produced series, a network rep confirmed to TheWrap.

That means ABC will soon have access to five episodes of "Shark," which it could air as a sort of mini-season at some point in the future.

For now, though, the Alphabet has not yet decided whether to go back into production on an official second season of "Shark."
