A reality competition where contestants design and mechanize theatrical creatures.

Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge tasks ten aspiring creature creators with bringing to life all sorts of theatrical creatures - and out-imagining each other in the process. Contestants will compete in challenges that highlight all phases of creature building, from conceptual design to sculpting and mechanization.

Each week judges will watch an on-set performance of the end result, with the eventual winner receiving a prize worth up to $100,000 including the opportunity for a contract working at the world-renowned Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

Brian Henson acts as the lead judge, and is joined by industry veterans Beth Hathaway and Kirk R. Thatcher. Gigi Edgley of Farscape hosts the show.

It was cancelled back around January due to high production costs.

I went onto SyFy's website and JHCSC is not listed among their shows, it jumps right from "Hunters" to "Killjoys." Perhaps they ran into the same issue of high productions costs that The Jeff Dunham Show did over at Comedy Central years ago, which apparently had higher ratings than Tosh.0 but was cancelled while Tosh.0 wasn't.

I don't understand how a show this good can be cancelled. It was so much better than Face Off and it's in it's seventh season. These artists were outrageously talented, and the stuff they could pull together in no time at all was beyond fabulous. I'm a sculptor and a monster maker but I keep all my monsters. My dream was to be able to visit Jim Henson's studio and see all the different mediums they have, and learn new things. I just wanted to watch and ask a few questions. I'm sad they are cancelled...but there's no accounting for Hollywood's taste, because Firefly and Crossbones were the two best series ever written and they were both cancelled, even though they still have huge amounts of loyal fans. Go figure!

This was fun and I especially enjoyed the little facts that Jim Hensen shared, such as Big Bird's feathers were all applied by hand and had his own seat when flying. Please bring it back!

Seems like it has been canceled. Everything I have read talks about season 2 but doesn't say when. 😞
