Somehow I missed this one earlier, and now it´s coming back, so, in order to have the lists of renewed shows of 2012 and cancelled shows of 2012 complete, I need to add this one: IFC renewed Whisker Wars for a second season set to premiere November 23rd.
Former two-time World Champion Jack Passion finds himself at a crossroads after losing his world renowned title last year. Shaken by the upset, Passion takes out the hair clippers and contemplates whether he should fight his way back to the top or kiss the world of competitive bearding goodbye.
Last season on Whisker Wars, Team USA failed to dethrone Germany at the World
Championships. Two?time world champion, USA’s Jack Passion, lost his grasp on the

Accompanying this season of Whisker Wars, IFC.com has created a new animated web
series, Total Bearding Network. Each one?minute webisode covers breaking news from the competitive bearding world through veteran former champion, Ken Guntruck, and a facial hair?challenged beard admirer, Pete Lewis. Coverage from these crack reporters will
include an in?depth look at spring training, an inspiring interview with the first woman
allowed in professional bearding and a performance?enhancing drug scandal ripping
through the bearding world. The Total Bearding Network is voiced by IFC’s 2012 “Adopt?AComic” Chris Gethard (The Chris Gethard Show, Human Giant, FunnyorDie.com) as Pete Lewis and Jim Santangeli (CollegeHumor Originals, FunnyorDie.com) as Ken Guntruck. It is written and directed by Dan Meth (CollegeHumor Originals).
