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 spin-off series, Project Runway All Stars and Project Runway: Junior. Since Weinstein Co. has filed for bankruptcy, the future of the TV franchise is unclear.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Project Runway? Do you want more seasons?
I miss Project Runway so much.nO googled the name and question about its disappearance too many ways to count and finally got the answer. What a shame it’s off the air. It was the best ever.bIn hoping some day in the future (soon) that someone else will reprise it in its original form.
we want project runway back!!!!!
I can’t believe the best show ever is cancelled because of scum. Won’t anyone else pick it up?
Please do not cancel Project Runway. Love this show.
Love Project Runway and would hate to see it end. Please continue airing it
The Project Runway franchise is my favorite of all reality shows. Just watching the raw talent compete and create the garments each week, is not only something i crave, it’s made me creative myself. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE SERIES!!!
Whoa! I can’t believe someone won’t buy up this property. I think everyone I have ever known would describe me as an antifashionista, but the incredible creativity on the part of the participants has brought me back to this show again and again. Youdon’t have to care about what goes on in the high fashion world to be filled with awe over what these talented people can do.
