    While many preppers believe defense is the best strategy for surviving a Doomsday scenario, one family in Tacoma, WA, is banking on a good offense. Tyler, his wife, and his cousin have assembled a group of like-minded, would-be marauders from their neighborhood in preparation for a catastrophic domestic terrorist attack. They have only six months' worth of food because they plan on taking what they need in order to survive. And to stay safe, they're developing the ultimate suit of armor.moreless
  • The Fight Ahead
    Episode 6
    Prepper Chad believes that a nuclear strike resulting in a genocidal siege is a real possibility. At his home in Arizona, he is working on executing the biggest prep of his life -a 140-foot-long escape tunnel from his family's house to a bug- out vehicle. With the help of his wife and daughter, he begins construction. But as the project unfolds, they realize they're in over their heads.moreless

    Deep in Oregon's backcountry sits an 80-acre off-the-grid estate that prepper Curt and his family have designed as a fortress in the event of an economic collapse. Isolation is one of their greatest strengths, but the protective measures are endless: a 3,000-square-foot greenhouse, a lake with 1 million gallons of water, infrared cameras and a high-tech software system-not to mention the children are trained in marksmanship.moreless
  • 9/3/13
    The possibility of World War III is a major concern for many preppers, including former Marine Alex Dunbar, who is training a private army of German Shepherd attack dogs in San Luis, Colorado. In the woods of East Appalachia, Brenda McSwigan fears that a vicious mutating virus will lead to a pandemic that will overwhelm hospitals and leave the rest of the country in chaos. Another prepper, Grace McLeod, secures her 3,500 square-foot fortress before an economic collapse.moreless
  • Whatever It Takes
    Episode 3
    Could an explosion on the surface of the sun cause mayhem on Earth? Jason and Jacob are a father-son team from Alabama who are prepping for exactly that: a global solar flare with the potential to wipe out power grids around the world. Jason was almost stranded for good in the wilderness when he was 19, but that will not stop him from prepping in those very same woods by molding his own ammunition and preparing his 20-piece bug-out pack.moreless
  • The Gates of Hell
    Episode 2
    An economic collapse could mean total chaos for the U.S. - looting, riots and civil unrest are top concerns. In Washington state, Steve works with a stern hand to prep his family for the potential threat. South Carolinian David Appleton is a comedian, but the idea of a devastating earthquake is no joke to him. His job doesn't always pay the bills, so David must Dumpster dive to find supplies to make a DIY camouflage net to hide his preps.moreless

    In the first episode of Season 3, we profile two unique individuals who fear the end of the world is fast approaching. First we meet Chad, a man prepared to fend off a nuclear strike from a hostile American government; an act of democide. With his family in tow, Chad must execute the biggest prep of his life - a 160' escape tunnel to freedom. In Oregon, we find Curt, a family man, and owner of 80 acres of pristine backcountry. Curt wants to save himself from a looming economic crisis but remaining on his estate won't be enough. In addition to all of his preps Curt is prepared to modify a regular SUV into the fastest armored vehicle on the road. We join these two preppers as they alter their lives to prepare for doomsday.moreless
