WE’RE BACK!

The ultimate robot-fighting series returns for an all-new metal crunching season, premiering Thursday, December 3 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel in the US.

After production was halted earlier this year due to COVID-19, BATTLEBOTS is back for a brand-new season. Sixty teams from across the globe converged for the hardest hitting, unremitting, steel splitting tournament in combat robotics. Unproven rookies, up-and-coming stars and legends in the game throw their fearsome fighting machines into the BattleBox for a chance to walk away with the preeminent prize in robotic sport: The Giant Nut.

The Season Premiere includes an epic Main Event clash: former world champion Ray Billings with his lethal bot Tombstone faces Jack Barker’s End Game from New Zealand. Jack has been looking forward to facing Tombstone’s deadly blade since his first appearance as a rookie in 2018 – this will be his moment of truth. Other stars include Whiplash and SawBlaze, both with championship aspirations, Captain Shrederator, hoping to spin its way to a win against Lock-Jaw, and Bloodsport, who will be out for blood against Skorpios.

Filming with cast, crew and bot builders was carried out under the strictest health and safety protocols, with constant supervision and regular testing, and without a live audience. Instead, the spectators were the teams themselves, watching all the action (and their competitors) from specially constructed “opera boxes” placed around the giant BattleBox arena.

In this season the youngest competitor is just 11 years old and the lineup includes the first ever 500 lb. walking robot.

The show premieres on Discovery Channel (US) and is also scheduled to run in parallel on Discovery Canada. The whole season is being distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal.

Trey Roski, creator of BattleBots, said: “This new season is our most exciting ever, with constant surprises, upsets, and technical innovations. We discover new heroes, a few legends are felled, and newbies emerge as BattleBots stars. We’re delighted that, despite COVID-19, we were able to film such an amazing new season for our millions of BattleBots fans around the world.”

The wait is over. Let the bot battles begin!
