          The epic robot-fighting tournament “BattleBots” is back for season two this summer and kicks off with a preview special entitled “BattleBots: The Gears Awaken” on Tuesday, May 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

          The robot shrapnel will fly in the BattleBox once again, with expert play-by-play analysis from veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose, and color commentary from former UFC fighter Kenny Florian. This season will be hosted by ESPN’s Samantha Ponder. “BattleBots: The Gears Awaken” will feature twelve robots fighting it out in a series of rumble matches for the final four spots in the field of forty-eight, who will ultimately vie for the championship trophy.

          Covering every inch of the robot fighting mayhem is sideline reporter Alison Haislip. Judging the battles are former BattleBots competitor & special effects artist Fon Davis, the face of “Nerdist” Jessica Chobot and a special guest judge for each round of the competition. For “BattleBots: The Gears Awaken,” Clark Gregg (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”) will be the first guest judge. Ring announcer Faruq Tauheed will preside as the bots go metal-a-metal.
