The network will make a six-episode reboot that will be filled with “more robots, more battles and more science than ever before,” pitting man vs machine once more.

The original Robot Wars series ran in 1998 with host Jeremy Clarkson, and it saw some worldwide popularity.

The new Robot Wars will showcase more technologically advanced robots than the original, obviously, with the network promising more innovative fighting machines. The show will be filmed in front of a live audience at a purpose-built arena in Glasgow.

The American version of the show, BattleBots, just recently received a second season renewal order by ABC, also fueling the resurgence of robot popularity.

BBC has yet to set a Robot Wars premiere date, nor have they given any sort of time table. But, just know that it’s in the works and we can expect some RWars at some point in our futures.
