El Rey Network has green lit the original unscripted series, Man at Arms: Art of War, for a second season, with Danny Trejo returning as host.

man at arms 15 jan 2018In each episode of Man at Arms, a team of expert craftsmen skilfully reproduce iconic weapons and armour from scratch, using the technology that would have been available at the time the weapons and armour were originally created, as well as state-of-the-art technologies beyond the original forgers’ wildest imaginations. The builders create historical, modern, and mythological works of martial art. Each masterwork is then tested by experts for its strength and real-world functionality.

The second season will continue the collaboration between El Rey Network and DEFY Media, the digital media company that created the  digital series Man at Arms. The series moves to ten episodes and will debut in the second half of 2018.

“Man at Arms: Art of War has been a terrific addition to El Rey Network’s original programming slate,” said El Rey Network president and GM Daniel Tibbets. “Our audience really responded to this exploration and celebration of craftsmanship, history and strength. Season one expanded the universe of the digital series, and season two will truly test the limits of the team of expert craftsmen.”
