Syfy recently announced that they had green lit another season of the popular special effects reality show, Face Off, and now we learn that Season 5 will return on August 27th.

In a short promo for Face Off Season 5 we are promised this Summer will see "huge" things from the series.

Yesterday saw the Season 4 finale, and now we don't have to way too much longer for new episodes.


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. As a member of the multi-generational family dynasty whose name is synonymous with the make-up effects field, actress McKenzie Westmore brings expertise to her role as host of the series. Some of SFX world’s most celebrated figures return to judge the competition -- multiple Academy-Award winner Ve Neill (The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean), industry veteran Glenn Hetrick (CSI: New York, Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and creature designer Neville Page (Avatar, Prometheus). World-renowned Hollywood makeup artist Michael Westmore serves as the contestant mentor.
