Thanks for the update. Like many others, I eagerly await series 3.
Given the USA setting: "Forged in Fire is a cutting-edge competition series that tests the skills of the most talented bladesmiths in the world."
Should be changed to "most talented bladesmiths in the USA."
But I'd love to see "Forged in Fire" series from around the world, culminating in a world championship, an annual "...cutting-edge competition series that tests the skills of the most talented bladesmiths in the world."
