Syfy picked up Face Off for a fourth season on October 9, 2012, which premiered on January 15, 2013 after the third season became one of the network's highest rated programs along with its strong performance.[1] A sneak peek of the upcoming season premiered during the live season 3 finale. Season 4 was the first season to create full on creature suites. Large fabrications and massive sculpting designs with crazy out of the box thinking.

Guests slated to appear are Bryan Singer, John Rhys-Davies, Jon Landau, Michael Nankin and Gale Anne Hurd, who previously served as a guest judge in season 3.[3] McKenzie Westmore's father Michael Westmore joins this season as a mentor.
