The BattleBots Are Back!

BattleBots Return in a Summer Series on ABC

ABC is ready to bring back BattleBots this coming summer. The network just announced they’re working on a new reality competition series that’s a “reimagined” version of the original BattleBots. The new series comes from Whalerock Industries and Ed Roski and Greg Munson (the guys behind the original BattleBots).

Season one of the new BattleBots will consist of six episodes. The competitors will battle it out in a single elimination tournament with cash prizes awarded to the winners of the Championship Rounds.

The Plot, Courtesy of ABC:

The new series promises to wow viewers with next generation robots – bigger, faster and stronger than ever before. The show will have a greater emphasis on the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. Separate weight classes will be eliminated so that robots of all sizes will battle against each other. State of the Art Onboard Technology and Cameras will provide audiences with enhanced viewing and combat analytics.
