We love cooking shows all year round, but they’re especially fun to watch when they’re specifically centered on a holiday. For Halloween 2020, Food Network is serving up all the tricks and treats in the best way possible. Food Network is jam-packed with Halloween-themed shows to get you into the spooky spirit. While many productions were put on hold this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Food Network thankfully has a few new ones to watch throughout September and October. From ‘Halloween Baking Championship’ to ‘Halloween Wars’, check out the lineup of shows for spooky season!
‘Halloween Baking Championship’ is back! Each week, bakers will have to create decadent and beautiful Halloween creations following whatever theme or guideline they’re given. The winner will receive a $25,000 prize. There will also be a special episode after the premiere to highlight past winners. How to watch: On Food Network, Mondays starting Sept. 14 at 9 p.m. ET.
Alyson Hannigan hosts this new show for the season. On ‘Outrageous Pumpkins’, seven pumpkin-carving experts will have to create elaborate pumpkin displays — on a pumpkin playground — each week to compete for the $25,000 prize. How to watch: On Food Network, Sundays starting Sept. 13 at 10 p.m.
Chefs Anne Burrell and Carla Hall are putting a Halloween twist on ‘Worst Cooks in America.’ In Worst Cooks in America: Halloween Redemption, four past chef contestants will be tasked with creating a Halloween buffet. The winner will take home $5,000. How to watch: On Food Network, Sunday, Oct. 11, at 10 p.m. ET.
It’s all about making a cake worthy of a carnival sideshow on this Halloween show. ‘Halloween Freakshow Cakes’ will see bakers attempt to make their most impressive cakes that are both wild and visually stunning. The winner will take home $10,000. How to watch: On Food Network, Sundays starting Oct. 18 at 10 p.m.
‘Halloween Wars’ actually comes in three parts: ‘Road to Halloween Wars’, ‘Halloween Wars’, and ‘Halloween Wars: Legends. Road to Halloween Wars’ will be a precursor to the actual show and give some background on the pumpkin carvers and confectionary experts. The premiere of ‘Halloween Wars’ will air right after the preview special and feature teams going head to head to put together giant Halloween creations using both pumpkin carvings and confectionary work like baking, chocolates, and sugar. The winning team will take home $50,000. After the season concludes, ‘Halloween Wars: Legends’ will air and pit past champions against each other to compete for a $20,000 prize. How to watch: On Food Network, Sundays starting Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. ET for ‘Road to Halloween Wars’, and ‘Halloween Wars’ will air at 9 p.m. ET each week.
