Syfy’s competition series “Face Off” has been renewed for a ninth season, Variety has learned exclusively. The contest — which tests the skill and creativity of special-effects makeup artists — will return on July 28, at 9 p.m.

The ninth season will also include the show’s 100th episode. McKenzie Westmore hosts the series, with Ve Neill (“The Hunger Games,” “Pirates of the Caribbean”), Glenn Hetrick (“CSI: New York,” “Heroes,” “Legion”) and Neville Page (“Avatar,” “Prometheus”) returning as judges. Hollywood makeup artist Michael Westmore (“Star Trek”) serves as the contestant mentor.

The show wraps its eighth cycle on April 14, at 9 p.m., with the remaining contestants facing one of the series’  most challenging finales, which will bring back all the previously eliminated competitors from this season to assist the finalists. Their challenge will be to create four characters who could star in a film franchise and will also be displayed to the public at Universal Studios Hollywood. Before starting work, the finalists choose genres for their films and pick words from an enormous board to help them come up with their new movie titles.

“Face Off” is produced by Mission Control Media, with Dwight D. Smith, Michael Agbabian and Derek Atherton serving as executive producers.

    Big fan of the show, not a big fan of the finale. They go through all this work to get to the end, but the winner is determined on the group effort as a whole.
