Hockey Battle of the Blades to return to CBC in the fall

Stars of the hockey and figure-skating worlds are set to lace up once again for a revival of Battle of the Blades.

Producers say a new season of the CBC competition series, in which hockey players and figure skaters pair up to perform on-ice dance routines for an audience and judges, will debut in the fall.

The CBC says season 5 will see participants once again competing for a charity of their choice.

Produced by Insight Productions, the weekly series launched in 2009 and ran through 2013.

Olympian and former Canadian skating pairs champion Sandra Bezic co-created and executive produced the series.

The CBC says further details on the new season will be announced later this spring.
