BattleBots is Back!

Geeks of the world rejoice - there will be a second season of BattleBots!

The new season will reportedly expand the field of robot warriors to 32 teams while retaining its single-elimination bracket. It'll also retain the revival's renewed emphasis on creators' narratives with a cast that includes "expert roboticists, garage builders, families on a mission, and past winners returning to defend their turf," according to ABC.

Battlebots earned an average of over 5 million viewers per episode through the summer months. - a notoriously slow time of the year for TV broadcasting. 

Who knew that watching people design cool robots for the sole purpose of smashing them to smithereens would have been so appealing!
