Robot Wars could return to TV (again) in the near future, creators say

Robot Wars will whir into action once again, according to a new report.

The much-loved TV show was, to the surprise of many, axed by the BBC earlier this year, having only been brought back in 2016.

However, people who are believed to be in the know have hinted that it could make a re-return to our screens in the near future.

Dave Young from Team MAD, the people behind former Robot Wars champion Apollo, said “Robot combat is at a massive peak right now, with lots going on in the UK and worldwide, the chances of something coming back to our TVs is very high,” according to The Inquirer.

Team MAD is involved in touring show Robots Live, where further hints of an impending Robot Wars comeback were apparently made to spectators at the Burgess Hill show last weekend.

Mentorn subsequently confirmed it was in talks with other broadcasters for “a new home” for the show.

The BBC chose to, ahem, Sir Killalot off the Robot Wars reboot after three seasons, “in order to create room for new shows”, but people made their feelings about that decision clear on Twitter soon after the announcement was made, with #BringBackRobotWars becoming a thing almost immediately.

Do you want to see Robot Wars return again, or should it be laid to… rust? Share your thoughts @TrustedReviews.
