At the beginning of this season, when we were told that Face Off (Syfy, Tuesdays, 9/8C) would be shaking things up a bit, the Tokyo episode was mentioned. Now it’s here. Oscar®-nominated makeup artist Kazuhiro Tsuji and anime artist and sci-fi illustrator Hidetaka Tenjin make guest appearances in the next all-new episode on March 4th. The eight remaining competitors will seek inspiration for two extreme challenges celebrating Japanese culture. Follow the jump for more details from the press release.

Syfy has cancelled Being Human. When the series’ run concludes on April 7th, it will have produced four seasons and fifty-two episodes – sixteen more than the original series produced over five seasons.
Time travel, heavy metal, bizarre creatures, purple goop and more highlight Syfy’ spring schedule as Continuum (April 4) and Warehouse 13 (April 14) return and Metal Hurlant Chronicles (April 14),a series based on the French anthology comic series, lead the net out of the winter doldrums.Plus, a new Syfy Original movie, Zodiac: Signs of the Apocalypse about and ancient artefact that might just be responsible for the apocalypse.
The unscripted competition series Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge sparks a spring of reality series and specials that also includes: My Big Fat Geek Wedding, Carvers and Foxy & Co. For dates, times and series descriptions, follow the jump.
Syfy’s Helix (Fridays, 10/9C) started out as an outbreak show – some kind of new virus struck members of an isolated research lab above the Arctic Circle and the CDC sent in a crack team to contain and cure it. Since then it has evolved – much like a virus does – into something similar but not quite the same. Now there are elements that suggest all manner of strangeness and, with this week’s new episode, Survivor One, there are new players and more layers coming to light.
Syfy’s attempt to catch silly lightning in a bottle one more time has cast a number of well-known folks in some intriguing – and occasionally appropriate roles. For sheer obviousness, though, none is more on point than Judd Hirsch being cast as Ben, a New York city cabbie.
Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Mark McGrath and Vivica A. Fox are also joining the cast. For more details, check out the press release after the jump.
If you haven’t had the chance to catch Syfy’s new thriller, Helix – which we gave an A (we noted that the series even makes the bossa nova creepy) – but figured it was too late, then tonight’s marathon will give you the chance to binge-watch the first five episodes and be ready for episode six, Antigatica, tomorrow night.
Tonight’s marathon begins at 6/5C. Tomorrow night’s ep is in its regular Friday timeslot (10/9C). Follow the jump for times and episode titles in the press release.
In what has to be one of the signs of the coming apocalypse, Sharknado 2: The Second One will begin production in February. Apparently, Ian Ziering and Tara Reid have developed a taste for saving cities, as they will be reunited in the sequel – this time to save New York City.
Anthony Ferrante returns to direct Sharknado 2: The Second One, which is written by Thunder Levin, writer of the original. Sharknado 2: The Second One is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July. Check out the press release, after the jump, for more details.
