Halloween Wars returns for a second season on Sunday, October 7 at 9pm ET/PT with five new teams, each consisting of a pumpkin-carving artist, a cake decorator and a candy craftsman, battling it out over the course of four episodes to create the ultimate Halloween-themed display that will feature heart-pounding creations. One team will be eliminated each week by the judging panel, made up of renowned cake decorator Shinmin Li and award-winning special effects, makeup artist and horror movie actor/director Tom Savini. The last team standing will wind the grand prize of $50,000. Hosted by Justin Willman ( Cupcake Wars), each episode will also have a rotating guest judge that is no stranger to scary situations: Shawnee Smith ( Saw, Anger Management), Rutina Wesley ( True Blood), Chaske Spencer (the Twilight saga) and Sara Canning ( The Vampire Diaries).
