Thursdays 10pm | Premiere June 3
Season 8 of the HISTORY Channel’s hit survival series Alone is back like never before and taking place in the most dangerous location yet. This season, 10 contestants fight to survive in the Canadian wilderness on the shores of Chilko Lake, British Columbia. Equipped with just 10 items and a camera kit, each participant must survive in total isolation, with the hopes of lasting the longest and winning the $500,000 prize. Not only must they endure hunger, loneliness, and the elements, but this season, they also face the deadliest predator in North America: the grizzly bear. No camera crews. No gimmicks. It is the ultimate test of human will.
Mondays 10pm | Finale June 21
The salvage team at family-owned Priestly Demolition Inc. is back for another season! Ted, Justin and the team race against the clock to recover historic treasures from buildings on the verge of demolition in this explosive series. Season 2 brings new faces, a new salvage yard, more treasure hunting, and more one-of-a-kind discoveries with amazing stories to tell.
America’s Book of Secrets
What else are “they” hiding from us? On the new season of America’s Book of Secrets, host and acclaimed actor Lance Reddick will go deeper, farther, and wider than ever before, in an unceasing effort to bring viewers the truth behind the nation’s most shocking headlines.
Forged in Fire
Swords may not be the weapon of choice for many people nowadays, with more advanced weaponry readily available, but that doesn’t stop some from continuing to work as bladesmiths. “Forged in Fire” tests some of the best in the field as they attempt to re-create some of history’s most iconic edged weapons. Former Army Ranger Wil Willis hosts the competition series that sees four master bladesmiths challenged in each episode to forge the swords, which are then tested by a panel of judges consisting of J. Neilson, who has been making knives for more than 20 years, hand-to-hand combat specialist Doug Marcaida, and David Baker, an authority on replicating period-accurate weaponry. The contestant who survives the elimination rounds and wins the episode’s contest earns $10,000 and the title of Forged in Fire champion.
