About the series
Forged in Fire is an American competition reality TV series that focuses on a competition of bladesmiths who are set to create bladed weapons, such as swords, katanas and chakrams, among others. The winner of the competition receives the champion title and the grand prize of $10 000. The first season of Forged in Fire premiered on the History Channel on June 21, 2015, and the series is currently in its third season which debuted on August 23, 2016. The first two seasons were comprised of eight episodes, while the third season is twice that length, extended to 16 episodes.
Filmed in Brooklyn, New York, this series presents four world-class bladesmiths per episode who are judged by three experts in historic weapons and their use. The contenders must use their skills to create fully functional and lethal weapons that have come to be considered works of art. With state-of-the-art metalworking equipment at their service, the bladesmiths forge raw materials into anything from throwing blades to medieval broadswords. At the end of each 3-4 hourlong round, the judges evaluate the weapons based on the criteria that were given to the competitors. In the end, only one will be crowned the winner.
Current season and renewal prospects
Each weapon being made during this series has a unique and fascinating story behind it, which is just as interesting to learn as it is to watch the bladesmiths work. The first season of Forged in Fire averaged 1.6 million viewers per episode. The second run averaged approximately 1 million viewers per episode, and the third installment is doing rather well with the season premiere viewed by 1.231 million fans, with a 0.41 demo rating.. The novelty of the subject matter, amazing skills of the contestants and the beautifully crafted weapons that come out of the fire seem to be interesting enough to the viewers, so although no decision has yet been announced by the network, a renewal seems plausible.
