A Doomsday Castle in the Upstate

“Nothing brings a family together like Armageddon!”
 
In February we toured what I dubbed “Château du Upstate,” the unfinished castle from reality show Doomsday Preppers episode “No Such Thing as a Fair Fight.” Due to high popularity rankings and “prep score,” the castle inspired its very own spinoff, Doomsday Castle.

 
“Castles were the ultimate homes for the original preppers – kings and noblemen, who were under constant threat from neighboring enemies. But for American prepper Brent, a castle is the perfect defense for the doomsday scenario he fears will set the world back to the Dark Ages – an electromagnetic burst that causes massive power grid failure. Brent, with the help of his children, is on a quest to finish his towering castle that is isolated deep in the Carolina mountains. But the apocalypse he fears might shy in comparison to the clash of characters of his five children as they try to live and work together to prepare for the worst. If doomsday comes, will this family survive to rule the mountains, or will it self-destruct before the castle is ever completed?” (source here)

 
The all-new series premieres tomorrow, August 13th at 10pm on the National Geographic Channel. For a run-down on the characters you might want to visit the Doomsday Castle website, or you can watch this short promotional clip:

 
Although I'm not the biggest reality show fan (and let's be honest, 10pm is way past my bedtime!), having been there before the castle was finished I'm looking forward to catching the show.
