Prepare for battle when BattleBots has its season 2 premiere THURSDAY JUNE 23 8|7c on ABC! This season, the shrapnel will fly in the BattleBox as teams of builders from unique and interesting backgrounds compete in a thrilling single-elimination tournament to decide not only who built the best 'bot, but which 'bot drivers have the killer instincts needed to win!

"BattleBots" is a reimagined take on the killer robot combat sport, from Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original "BattleBots" franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson. The homemade robots are back for season two, where they will battle against each other in a single elimination tournament until there is one champion. The ten episode series will feature next generation robots – bigger, faster and stronger than ever before. The show will continue to emphasize the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. While there's only one weight class, there are a huge variety of deadly weapons. Forty-eight robots will enter, but in the end, only one will win the final trophy. Executive producers are Lloyd Braun, Chris Cowan, Edward P. Roski (Trey), Greg Munson and Aaron Catling.
