I definitely prefer the old format for Halloween Wars*, but I'll give it a watch again this year to cheer on Hannah.
*The old format of having to combine Pumpkin Carving, Sugar work ,and cake decorating was more interesting to me than the new format last season where it just feels like all 3 team members are Cake Artists, and it just felts like just another cake decorating show where before having combine the disciplines seamless lead to more impressive displays and interesting creations. It seems the cast bios this year state that their are pumpkin carvers again so maybe they are reverting to that format over the Soft Reboot of last season. Another reason to give it a watch, I guess.
I completely agree. I didn’t really enjoy last season’s format and was hoping they’d go back to the original this year. And I missed having the guest judges each week. I hope you’re right about having more pumpkin carving this time.
So a bit more info has trickled out... The reason the pumpkin carving suffered during the last season had to do with the time of year they filmed. Having to catch up their competition programming after the pandemic, the season that aired in 2021 was filmed with no pumpkins available.I hope you are right.
We loved the old format, have probably seen every episode, at least once. Watched the first episode last season, and were done.
This year, there were MORE than enough.
