The second season of Battle of the Blades premiered on September 26, 2010 as a part of CBC's fall line-up. Like season 1, this season showcases a lineup of 8 couples.

Ron MacLean and Kurt Browning return as the show's hosts. Sandra Bezic continues as the head judge this season, with the addition of former NHL player Jeremy Roenick as the other regular judge, replacing season 1's Dick Button.[1] This season will continue to have one rotating guest judge every week. Because Maple Leaf Gardens is undergoing renovations, the venue this season is set in a soundstage at Pinewood Toronto Studios. The soundstage is transformed into a skating rink, with two-tiered seating.[2]

The elimination format changed this season. The scores from the couples' Sunday night performance are now added to the viewers voting to determine the bottom two couples. On Monday, the bottom two couples are revealed and they skate their Sunday night program once more in the Skate-Off. Instead of scoring the couples on their Skate-Off performance, this season the judges are just asked to vote on the couple of their choice. The couple with the lesser amount of judges votes is then eliminated. However, it was announced that the judges would not be scoring the couples' week 8 skates and that the top 3 placements were decided solely on viewers voting.

The official cast announcement was made on the morning of September 7, 2010 on the show's official website.[3]

The season premiere on September 26, 2010 is actually a preview of the competition, entitled "Battle of the Blades: Game On".[4] It documents the announcement of the cast, training camp and partner assignments of the eight couples. The first actual competition night is broadcast live on Sunday, October 3, 2010.

On October 25, 2010, it was announced that there would be a special show on October 31, 2010 entitled "Second Chance Sunday" in which the four previously eliminated pairs would gain a second chance to go back to the competition.

Notes
  • a ^ Jeremy Roenick had originally given Patrice & Shae-Lynn a score of 5.9, but opted to change it to a perfect 6.0 upon hearing Sandra Bezic had given them the perfect score. CBC did not have time to change the score initially and the on-screen graphic still displayed Roenick's given score at 5.9, giving the couple a total of 17.7. When the judges' leaderboard was announced at the end of the night, the graphic was corrected to reflect the new score.
