Five new teams set to compete for $50,000 grand prize in series premiere Oct. 5
"Halloween Wars" returns to Food Network for its fourth season, premiering Sunday, Oct. 5, at 9 p.m. Witness five teams, consisting of a pumpkin carving expert, a cake decorator, and sugar artist, as they battle it out over four episodes to create heart-stopping Halloween-themed displays, guaranteed to scare the daylights out of viewers.
Hosted by Justin Willman ("Cupcake Wars"), each week the teams go head-to-head to create different themed pumpkin displays. One team is eliminated each episode by the judging panel, made up of renowned cake decorator Shinmin Li and Emmy-nominated make-up artist Brian Kinney, and a rotating panel of celebrity guest judges, including Naomi Grossman ("American Horror Story: Asylum"), Francia Raisa ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager"), Adi Shankar (film producer of "The Grey"), and Lew Temple ("The Walking Dead"). The last team standing wins the title of "Halloween Wars" champion and a $50,000 grand prize.
