Forged in Fire
Season 5 – NEW EPISODES
Wednesdays at 8.30pm AEST from March 6 until May 29
Season 5 returns to A&E with all new episodes, and we’re making it bigger and better than ever! For starters, bigger and historic weapons, once reserved for round three, will now also be incorporated as round one weapons’ and that’s just the beginning!
We will engage our audience with new and exciting challenges and tests as well as, for the first time, multi-episode arcs which will turn this weekly program into a television event! A vigorous 5-episode tournament features the best smiths from different metalworking genres battling for $50,000 – the biggest cash prize ever awarded on Forged in Fire. We’ll also get out of the forge for some Forged in Fire firsts, including a gruelling coal forge challenge which will see the smiths struggle to build their own coal forges before they even start forging. We will also introduce a slate of Special Themed episodes like never before. These episodes incorporate elements that commend everything from Halloween to Presidents Week.
Finally, for the first time, Forged in Fire Season 5 expands its arsenal and explores weapons from pop culture and the historic weapons they are based on. New weapons and tests, bigger events and ingenious format twists around every corner make this season hotter than ever!
