GSN has ordered a 10-episode second season of “Skin Wars.”
Hosted by Rebecca Romijn and featuring judges RuPaul and experts Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina, the series searches for the most-talented body painters in the country through a series of competitive challenges.
“Skin Wars,” which is executive produced by Michael Levitt (“Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List”), Jill Goularte and Romijn, wrapped its freshman run on Sept. 24 with the highest-rated finale in the network’s history. (Tracy and Slonina also serve as producers). The series also has a digital aftershow, “Skin Wars: The Naked Truth,” that is aimed at younger audiences and hosted by YouTube star and makeup expert Kandee Johnson.
“We are thrilled that young audiences tuned in to witness the astonishing work of these contestants,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, executive vice president of programming at GSN. “‘Skin Wars’ represents GSN’s commitment to celebrate artistry through skill-based competition and we cannot wait for viewers to see what we have in store for them with season two.”
“The best part of hosting ‘Skin Wars’ has been getting to know these incredibly creative artists and helping to introduce their talents to a nationwide audience,” said Romijn. “GSN has been instrumental in showcasing body painting as a true art form.”
“In the first season, the level of support we received from GSN was unparalleled,” said Levitt. “I couldn’t be more pleased to be making this series for GSN and look forward to a ‘Skintastic’ season two!”
