BattleBots

Second Half Kicks Off Friday, August 3 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel and Wednesday, August 8 at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel

The epic robot-fighting series BattleBots returns with even higher stakes for the second half of its 2018 season as momentum builds towards the 2018 World Championship and the awarding of the Giant Nut to the ultimate BattleBots Champion.  As part two of the season commences, some bots are already on the brink of elimination, including several fan favorites. In order to give them a last chance at qualifying for the championship, BattleBots is staging its first ever ‘Desperado’ Tournament, where 8 teams will be given the chance to win one guaranteed place in the final 16 qualifiers.  It’s a fight to the death, and only one robot can win.

 

The Desperado Tournament is the first of 10 new episodes in the second half of the season, and is set to premiere Friday, August 4 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel and Wednesday, August 8th at 9 PM on Science Channel.
