We’ve seen ninjas take on pirates, knights take on vikings, and mobsters take on the army on Spike TV’s biggest “What If?” show on the network, Deadliest Warrior. This season, things are taking a bit of a different turn, as the focus is mainly on real historical celebrities and even one of their first fantasy match ups between Vampires and Zombies.
Here’s a breakdown of what we can look forward to this season.
The debut episode, “George Washington vs. Napoleon Bonaparte,” features two larger-than-life generals who both fought in the age of revolutions, now meeting for the first time on the battlefield. America’s first great general, George Washington, who defeated the British empire against all odds to become known as the father of the world’s most powerful nation, will square off against Napoleon Bonaparte, the brutal French warlord turned emperor who terrorized Europe in his quest to conquer the world.
Other highly-anticipated matchups this season include the series’ first female warrior Joan of Arc vs. William the Conqueror, Genghis Khan vs. Hannibal, Saddam Hussein vs. Pol Pot, U.S. Army Rangers vs. North Korean Special Operations Force, Crazy Horse vs. Pancho Villa, Ivan the Terrible vs. Hernan Cortes, French Foreign Legion vs. Gurkhas and our first fantasy matchup Zombies vs. Vampires.
This new season will also bring some pretty awesome new segments like the all new Armory segment, X-Factor, Chalk Talk, and guest experts such as Navy SEAL Richard Machowicz. Also promoted for the upcoming third season is a brand new digital combat engine that will help us determine who is the deadliest warrior of all.
Check out the first of many new teasers for the new season in which we get a glimpse at Vampires vs. Zombies, and be sure to catch season 3 of Deadliest Warrior on Spike TV July 20th.
