Syfy’s special effects competition series Face Off is getting a second season.

The network announced the renewal Wednesday, looking for a little lift for its first season finale, which airs tonight. “With strikingly intense personalities and creatively stunning challenges, Face Off has ignited viewers’ imaginations, making it Syfy’s best unscripted franchise launch ever,” said Mark Stern, programming president at Syfy. “We look forward to another exciting season showcasing some of the best special effects make-up talent in the country.”

Face Off has enjoyed steady ratings across seven episodes, averaging 1.4 million viewers when you add in DVR.

    I’m happy it was renewed. Great show.

  • wsugar

    SyFy where only non science fiction shows are renewed.

  • Matt S.

    Ahh yes renew this and cancel SGU which brought in the same # of viewers (yeah yeah i know SGU cost more but really SyFy?!?!)

  • Bix

    That’s awesome. This show rules. Definitely a great addition to SyFy

  • Aprilcot26

    This show is awesome! I caught a rerun of the first episode right after it aired and was hooked. I’m such a nerd, but I find it fascinating.

  • Tarc

    Awesome! Great show, though next season, I’d like less behind the scenes and more focus on craft 9which is what I say about Top Chef and Project Runway constantly – who cares about what happens that the house?).

  • The Dude

    definitely not in the ranks of the best reality competition series (the drama felt forced and the challenges, while challenging, started to feel too familiar by the end), but a nice diversion of a series. i’d welcome a second season.

    • ks

      I agree. I hated the Megan and Jo tiff, it felt forced to me as well. Overall, I enjoyed the show.

  • JayC

    Love this show!!! So glad it’s renewed

  • greg

    Glad to hear it. I’ve really been enjoying the show.

  • Michael TX

    This show was an incredible surprise, and I am glad it will be back. I hope a few of this season’s cast are brought back again. There was a lot of talent in those voted out.

  • GeekGirl13

    YES! I’ve been hoping for this. Can’t wait for tonight’s finale! Go TATE!!!!!

  • Dgh

    Now renew being human

    • Flip

      No. As a fan of the UK original, this American remake is just awful. It’s a shame that people are getting into this show without seeing the amazing original Being Human first. The UK series is filet mignon and the American version is Taco Bell.

      • Dgh

        I don’t like British shows but this American version is amazing

      • Dean

        but Taco Bell is awesome >.>

      • Flip

        Taco Bell’s “meat” is just a step above dog food.

        The American version is NOT amazing. I gave the show a fair chance because I love and adore the UK series, but this one is just so stupid! The series treats its audience like they’re stupid.

  • Vicky

    What?! There’s a show about movie makeup and I didn’t know about it? I need to watch this. NOW!

  • Flip

    I watched the first episode because I love McKenzie Westmore, but I just couldn’t get into it.

  • I3olda

    Can’t wait for season 2. Love this show for the creativity, talent and hard work of the contestants and the creators.
