“Halloween Wars” Returns to Food Network in October; Info and Guest Judges

Every Halloween season since 2011, Food Network has celebrated the holiday with “Halloween Wars, a reality competition series wherein teams made up of cake sculptors, sugar artists, and pumpkin carvers battle it out to produce the ultimate Halloween themed display.

For this year’s Season 7, “Halloween Wars” is bigger and better than ever.

“Halloween Wars” returns with a new season, a new special, and exciting new series, dishing out tricks and treats and frightful delights. The all-new special, “Road to Halloween Wars” kicks off the seasonal celebration on Sunday, October 1st at 8pm ET/PT, as host Jonathan Bennett takes viewers behind the scenes of the journey leading up to the competition.

Then “Halloween Wars” returns for a new season on Sunday, October 1st at 9pm ET/PT, when Jonathan Bennett challenges six teams to create amazing and frighteningly fun Halloween-themed edible displays. Over five episodes the teams must battle it out, as their creations are judged by renowned cake decorator Shinmin Li and horror film director and makeup effects master Todd Tucker, along with a rotating panel of celebrity guest judges, including Fiona Dourif (Child’s Play franchise), Bryan Fuller (Executive Producer, “American Gods”), Juliet Landau (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), and Shane West (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen).

New episodes of “Halloween Wars” air Sunday nights through October 29.

Halloween chills and thrills continue as new series “Halloween Wars: Hayride of Horror” takes the competition out of the kitchen and into the pumpkin patch. When night begins to fall and the pumpkin patch closes for the day, two teams of master food artists – working in cake, sugar, and a whole lot of carved pumpkin – face off to create terrifying Halloween displays through three episodes, with one team taking home $15,000 each episode. But to win the cash prize, the winning team’s displays of horror must win the votes (and screams) of a wagon full of hayriders and judges Zac Young and Bianca Appice. Hosted by Harley Morenstein, “Halloween Wars: Hayride of Horror” premieres Monday, October 2nd at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network.

New episodes of “Hayride of Horror” air Monday nights through October 16.

      Try to find the past seasons online. It’s super fun.

  • Great show. I didn’t see last season because no cable, but the previous seasons were fun. A lot of creative and awesome work done on this show.

  • AlanMorlock

    The past few seasons have been pretty bad, a lot of awful teams kept around mostly for drama purposes.

    Do losing teams not get any money?
