Netflix is back with another reality show fix for fans with Nailed It! Halloween. Let’s meet the contestants and judges baking up spooky treats for the special season.

While previous Nailed It! desserts might have been scary for all the wrong reasons, this time around that’s exactly the aim of the game.

There are also some ghoulish surprises in store with guest appearances by stars of other hit Netflix shows, including Cobra Kai, Umbrella Academy and The Witcher.

The Halloween special is the seventh season of the show, with a whole new cast of characters showing off their baking skills, including some familiar faces.
