You guys!!! Great news!!! Our beloved Project Runway is going to return to television after all! According to Women’s Wear Daily (I actually read about this on their Twitter feed, so yes, you can learn things from Twitter after all!), NBC Universal (who owns Bravo) and the Weinstein Co., who produce the show, have settled their forever-long lawsuit over the fate of the show.
What does this mean? It means that Project Runway can return to the airwaves, which is great. But it also means that it’s returning to the airwaves on Lifetime, which is less great. At least to me – Lifetime’s programming tends to be less edgy and hip than that of Bravo, so I hope that PR doesn’t lose any of it’s cool, insider-y appeal. I’ve heard rumors that PR will eventually be moved to Los Angeles under Lifetime’s control, and if that’s true, then this is a sad day instead of a happy one. For now, I’m just glad that it will be resurfacing at all. There’s no premier date for season 6, but we know that the season has already been shot and the designers have already shown at Fashion Week, so I’m hoping they won’t delay it for too long.
