At Discovery.com they have a web board for the show and someone mentioned Sept. 26th. could be a new show, however, nothing is set in stone. No idea about Human Weapon tho.

Edit: HW update
Found this over at historychannel.com its from Bill's myspace, didn't know he had one so here goes:

HW Fans,

To finally answer all the emails, The Human Weapon has run its course. The History Channel will be developing other martial arts oriented programming on a less constly platform. Honestly lets give the show the respect it deserves, there will never be another like it and it was done the right way. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did and keep a watch for me in some upcomming entertainment venues.

Well, I liked Human Weapon, but you can only explore so many fighting styles that are truly legit.

Yeah and the big guy was a D-Bag.

I mean, he seemed nice, but I never understood WTF he was doing on that kind of show. He had no fighting background, and his form ALWAYS looked horrible. Regardless of what style it was.

But all the asian guys would always pick him to win because he was big. lol!

What was that other show that came on Discovery? They marketed it as a fighting show, but they only did fight challenges sometimes. None of them requiring the skill of MMA.

One time they were running in these funny sandals, kicking rocks up a mountain in Mexico. It was a long ass run and looked brutal.

Crap! What was that show?!?!?!

At least the big guy wasn't a bitch. Dude didn't seem to have a problem getting in there and fighting at the end of the show. The other guy always seemed to get "hurt" or just didn't want to compete.
