Season 2 of King of Bots is the show's second main season, filmed in May 2019[1] and debuting later that summer. Season 2 follows directly from Season 1 and the 2019 Opening Battle, and is currently being broadcast on various channels and streaming services, including Zhejiang TV and Youku. As with Season 1, full episodes were also made available on the official Zhejiang TV YouTube channel following their initial airing.[2]

FormatEdit

While following directly on from Season 1, Season 2 derives elements from the spin-off show This is Fighting Robots, including the presence of six celebrities divided into two teams of three. Participating celebrities included Emma Dumont, Zhu Zheng Ting, Tao Shen, Di Yang, Huang Jian Xiang (who had previously appeared in Season 1 as a panelist/commentator) and Tu Ziya.

In the opening stages of the competition, celebrities were tasked with choosing one robot each for their respective teams, which would then take part in a series of one-on-one or melee battles drawn at random. Winning robots would be allocated a place on each individual celebrity's team; the selection process would begin anew until all places had been filled.
