After missing the 2020 season, Blacksmith, Minotaur, DUCK! and Icewave make their triumphant returns to wage war against fan favorites Witch Doctor, SawBlaze, Hydra, Whiplash and Valkyrie, but only one will be crowned the top bot in the world.
"Delighted to kick off the new year and welcome viewers back into the BattleBox with 14 all-new episodes filled with some of the most intense bot battles we've ever seen," said Scott Lewers, EVP Multiplatform Programming Discovery Factual & Head of Content, Science. "Thursday night robot fighting action's back and better than ever!"
BattleBots founder and CEO Edward Roski (Trey) said, "This year's World Championship was the most exciting ever, and the battles are beyond amazing. The builders did an incredible job raising the bar to a completely new level of imagination, skill and, frankly, violence. There are shocks and upsets, and heartwarming triumphs over technical and personal challenges. It's going to be our best ever season, and we can't wait for the start of January so we can share all the drama with our millions of fans."
Adding more excitement to the battles are returning sportscaster Chris Rose and former UFC fighter Kenny Florian to provide play-by-play commentary, along with expert contributions from Pete Abrahamson, a.k.a. The Bot Whisperer, and Faruq Tauheed in the BattleBox as Ring Announcer.
Executive Producer Chris Cowan said "The best team in combat sports are back doing their thing, and the competitive firepower brought to bear by our builders in this year's quest for the Giant Nut is simply unreal. A more stacked field of contenders has never been assembled. Thursday nights are gonna be a blast, literally!"

American Ninja Warrior (sometimes abbreviated as ANW) is an American sports entertainment competition based on the Japanese television series Sasuke.
A group of amateur survivalists are put to the ultimate test in the wild for 40 days with nothing but a few primitive tools. No food. No clothing. No water. They must hunt and gather whatever they need until extraction day.
In "Naked and Afraid," complete strangers -- usually a man and a woman -- meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food or water, and they're completely naked. Each episode follows the adventurers as they attempt to survive on their own with nothing but a personal item and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there is no other choice, competitors quickly get to know one another -- and their surroundings -- and hope that their instincts, survival skills, and intestinal fortitude serve them well.
