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.
