Robot Wars is coming back to BBC Two after more than 10 years away from the channel.
The show ran between 1998 and 2004 and involved inventors pitting their robots against each other, as well as having to avoid the more powerful house robots.
Creators say the new series will have "more battles and more science than ever before".
There will be six hour-long episodes but there's no start date yet.
A purpose-built fighting arena in Glasgow will be the stage for the new series.
Kim Shillinglaw, controller of BBC Two and BBC Four, says: "Robot Wars is an absolute TV classic and I'm thrilled to be updating it for the next generation of viewers.
"With new technological advances making for an even more exciting and immersive experience, this is a fantastic example of the kind of content-rich factual entertainment that BBC Two excels at."
With a decade of technological development to draw from, chances are the new robots will be even more menacing.
