About the show
A brand new drone-flying competition television series launched on CBBC on February 20, 2016, Airmageddon involves young contestants and targets a young audience. The series is created by Steve Carsey (Robot Wars, The Match, Techno Games), executive produced by Hugh Lawton and produced by Conceive Media. It is also set to be broadcast in Canada on Family CHRGD in the spring of 2016.
Will Best and Rachel Stringer present the series where kids demonstrate their mastery of complex flying machines. The show promises much in the way of imaginative use of cutting-edge technology to create a compelling spectacle, with precision flying challenges, skilled air battles and other striking sightings in the Airena – a setting that was built especially for the high-tech show. In reality, as The Guardian`s Stuart Heritage notes, it is very repetitive and does not require any particularly amazing skills.
Current season and renewal prospects
Each episode`s winning team goes through to the semi-finals, to be conducted later on in the season and then, with luck, to the Grand Final, where Britain`s Ultimate Aviator will be crowned. Is the show exciting enough to score a renewal for another series? Is the viewer interest strong enough to keep the program afloat? There`s not much information to go on at this point, so we will keep monitoring the ratings and announcements, and will inform you as information becomes available.
