Syfy has announced that acclaimed reality-competition series Face Off has been renewed for a sixth season, set to begin this coming January. In addition, the network will be premiering two Face Off specials this November, beginning with Naked and Painted on Tuesday, November 12th at 9:00. That hour-long special finds Face Off host McKenzie Westmore delving into the world of body painting with former Face Off contestants and various industry professionals. On Tuesday, November 19th at 9:00, there will be a judges’ favorites countdown, as Glenn, Ve, and Neville rank the 20 best makeups from the first five seasons of Face Off and call out designs that are especially funny, surprising, or ambitious.
It should be interesting to see how the show morphs from the last all-original season to the upcoming season, as the network is calling season six the boldest season yet. No specific details about season six have been released, aside from the fact that there will be 14 contestants, so it could really go anywhere and do anything at this point.
The current season of Face Off, which pits veterans of the series against newcomers, is set to conclude on November 5th with the final three being tasked to create two characters: a woman transforming into a swan and the sorcerer responsible for the spell that did this to her. The makeups will then be used in a performance of Swan Lake by the Los Angeles Ballet. Remaining in the competition are four veterans – Laura, Roy, Miranda, and Tate – and one newcomer – Laney.
Face Off airs Tuesdays at 9:00 on Syfy.
