Robot Wars is Back on 22nd October

By Tom Pritchard on at

It's not been very long since the last series of Robot Wars (which ended in April), but the BBC has announced when it'll be back for a tenth series. Not long, since the first episode is set to debut on 22nd October at 8pm. That's on BBC 2., or iPlayer if you're all fancy and technological.

Dara O'Briain is back, despite the fact that he seems to be in everything nowadays, joined by co-host Angela Scanlon and long-time announcer Jonathan Pearce. They'll be back in front of the studio audience in Glasgow, with the bot battling it out for supremacy.

As you can see in the trailer above, there's a bunch of new stuff to look forward to. Eagle-eyes viewers on Reddit noticed entanglement devices, which would be the first time such things are allowed. There's also The Fog of War, which has the bots battling it in a thick fog that makes it difficult to see, and a 10 robot rumble that will see ten bots fight to the death with no wildcard.
