Mentorn Scotland is to reboot Robot Wars for BBC2.

Robot Wars, which first aired over a decade ago, will return as a 6 x 60’ series and will feature a new structure with more robots, battles and science.
 
The show will be recorded in a new purpose built fighting arena in Glasgow.
 
The new series of has been commissioned by Channel Controller Kim Shillinglaw, Acting Controller of Entertainment Alan Tyler and Jo Street BBC Commissioning Editor.

Produced by Mentorn Media Scotland in association with SJP Media, it will be executive produced by Creative Director Entertainment at Tinopolis, Chris Brogden, Andrew Robertson of Mentorn Scotland and Jo Street for the BBC.
 
Chris Brogden, Creative Director Entertainment at Tinopolis, said:
“Its return will see new and improved robots, with extraordinary innovation and power in these updated machines – it promises to be quite the competition.”
 
 Alan Tyler, BBC Acting Controller of Entertainment Commissioning said:
“The redeveloped Robot Wars proved compelling, offering a mix of real people, real passion and raw power. It is remarkable to see how much more powerful these robots have become since the series last aired, with battles now staged in an arena that is literally bullet proof. And yet, the show is still fundamentally driven by the eccentricity of the brilliant brains behind the machines."
