In Season 3, ten brave participants travel to Patagonia, a wild and remote region of South America, known simply as the “Edge of the World.” There, they will be put to the ultimate test of will and human endurance – surviving as long as they can, completely isolated and alone, with nothing but the contents of a small backpack. Each individual must create their own shelters, catch food from the land, overcome harsh terrain, bitter cold, and contend with a host of deadly predators. They will truly be on their own. No camera crew. No gimmicks. Last one standing wins.

FORGED IN FIRE

FORGED IN FIRE

Silver Sponsor
Forged in Fire is back for another scorching season where highly-skilled bladed weapon makers go head-to-head in an elimination challenge to create some of history’s most iconic, edged weapons. Each week, four talented bladesmiths put their skills and reputations on the line to turn raw metal into classic bladed weapons under nearly impossible time constraints. In the first two rounds, four contestants face-off forging blades they hope can withstand the judges’ grueling tests. Only two bladesmiths continue on to the final round, where they head to their home forges to create a historic blade, which could be anything from a War Hammer to the legendary Cutlass Sword.
