Face-Off-cancelled-renewed-season-three-syfyMy lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012 keep growing.

In this case with the addition of a renewal in the non scripted front. Syfy renewed Face Off for season three of the make up competition.

Face Off will return for a 10-episode third season of special effects competition, offering a new group of rising SFX make-up artists with the opportunity to showcase their imagination and creativity. Production on season three will commence this Spring for a Summer 2012 premiere.

Season two of Face Off currently airs Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and broke series records with its debut on January 11, transforming 2.5 million total viewers, 1.52 million Adults 18-49 and 1.31 million Adults 25-54 based on Live +7 data. Last week’s episode on February 1, including only Live + Same Day playback, delivered 1.175 million Adults 18-49 and a series-high of over two million total viewers. In its first two episodes with Live + 7 viewing, Face Off has earned its most watched episodes to-date, currently topping the first season average by 51 percent among viewers 18-49 and 56 percent among total viewers.

Dwight D. Smith and Michael Agbabian of Mission Control will return as executive producers for the third season.
