Everyone knows full well that the most dangerous warrior of all is an overmaxed Bastet Warder, but despite our repeated, well-reasoned letters to Spike TV, the network appears intent on moving forward with another season of their show, Deadliest Warrior.

The new season sounds as exciting as ever, with match-ups that are the stuff dreams are made of...if you're anything like us and happen to dream about vampires fighting zombies. Here's what we learned out about the conflicts you've always wanted to see play out:

Vampires vs. Zombies, the new season's tenth episode, is a departure for the normally history and science-based series. In the past, they've run thousands of simulations to determine each conflict.

Deadliest Warrior Will Pit Vampires vs Zombies

To signal the popularity of vampires and zombies, they will square off in a special episode of Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior this summer. The hypothetical cage-match show usually takes classic combatants such as the ninja and the roman centurion, or modern figures like the Yakuza and the Mafia and talk to historians and experts to gather data and tests to determine who would win head-to-head battles such as fighting style, weapons used, training and skills. In the end a dramatization of the match is acted out based on the findings.

Zombies have made a big push in recent years from The Walking Dead comic book and television series, to the Left 4 Dead video game. Vampires meanwhile have become ubiquitous dominating every genre from film (Twilight), TV (True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Being Human) to comics (American Vampire)

This summer Deadliest Warrior will conduct one hour-long fantasy episode using film and fiction icons as the warriors.
