Syfy renews Face Off for season two, and this means there will be a second make up artist who wins the prize.

Tonight is the season finale of Face Off, and just prior to that Syfy announced the renewal for a show that averaged 1,4 million viewers.

Syfy announced the renewal of Face Off via the official Twitter Account @syfy with an all happy message: Happy to announce that thanks to our awesome viewers we’re able to renew #FaceOff for another season 🙂 Thanks to all who’ve been watching.

What is Face Off About?

Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. The contestants are tasked with elaborate feature challenges including executing full body paint make up on models and creating their own horror villain. Not only will the show incorporate effects make-up, it will include a wide range of skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, eye enhancers, casting and molding. Each episode involves incredible reveals of the competitors’ finished work, and the drama of one contestant being sent home by the panel of expert and celebrity judges. It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career.

To determine who emerges victorious, Syfy has signed three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands) and Hollywood veterans Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction) as Face Off’s judges.
