What’s next for Project Runway? Variety reports the future of the Lifetime TV show is in jeopardy because of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Hosted by Heidi Klum, the long-running competition series pits aspiring fashion designers against each other for the chance to win $100,000 and their own fashion line. Tim Gunn serves as a mentor to the contestants.
In 2016, Lifetime renewed Project Runway for three seasons. However, only one of those seasons has aired so far and it’s unclear if the other two ever will. Earlier this year, A+E Networks (Lifetime’s parent company) dropped future seasons of Project Runway amid the recent sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein’s production company, Weinstein Co., owns Project Runway and its spinoff series, Project Runway All Stars and Project Runway: Junior. Since Weinstein Co. has filed for bankruptcy, the future of the TV franchise is unclear.
