It’s been twelve years since we last watched BattleBots with its home-built robots beating the crap out of each other for our enjoyment. Over the weekend, Deadline revealed that ABC has seen fit to bring the show back, this time as a limited run series. It will air as six episodes over the summer with original series creators Ed Roski and Greg Munson.
This new series will be similar to the original in that it will feature robots beating each other up in a cage, but the new version will show a lot more about the build process and the builder backstories. Weight classes will be abolished as well.
Combine that with over a decade of technological advances and you have the recipe for something very interesting.
