Sad words from RoboChallenge. There won't be an official announcement of cancellation from the BBC, but it's definitely confirmed now.

It's very sad to hear that what was a part of my childhood getting rebooted two years ago, then the show ends up being cancelled. But on the bright side, at least the show went out with a bang with series 10 being a very enjoyable series to watch and particularly rememberable along the fan base.
wtf why. I thought viewing figures were good?

I recalled that one user on the Robot Wars Sub-Redit stated that series 10 of Robot Wars was put up against the BBC documentary series Blue Planet around the same time-slot, and of course , Blue Planet was one of the most viewed programs of last year. Of course I don't blame the program for the full death of Robot Wars, but with the program took the large majority of the view share when it was on and most other shows that aired around the same time like Robot Wars never really got a chance to breath in terms of viewership. So of course the program struggled to break the millions in terms of viewership.

Yeup, this is real. People in the Robot Wars Facebook group have contacted Mentorn, and they've confirmed it. Robot Wars is done.

I'm bummed out, but I'm pretty satisfied with the three seasons we got. The last episode was great and I'm glad they went out on a high note.

My favorite series doesn't belong to any of the new one's. The reboot was, in my opinion good, but the original was one of the best programs of my childhood. I remember, it must have been in 2000 or 2002, it ran on TV4 here in Sweden. I miss those days sometimes.

But hey, just like this recent cancellation you cannot turn back time. So, I'll at least hope that we may get some form of miniature versions of the latest versions of the house robots.

As for now, I'll enjoy the original 1997-2004 run, the reboot behind.

Rust In Pieces (1998-2018), Robot Wars. Twenty awesome years of carnage and mayhem for sure.
