Bravo will air a Project Runway 2 reunion as ratings continue to rise

The success of Project Runway 2 has led Bravo to order a one-hour cast reunion, just like last season. The reunion will air March 1, the week before the March 8 finale.

Ratings for the series have continued to improve. Last week’s episode, which featured the photograph inspiration challenge, was watched by 1.4 million people ages 18 to 49, and the show “delivered a robust 1.9 million overall viewers,” according to Variety.

Will that finale be expanded to two hours like last season? “A repeat is likely,” Variety reports, “but [Bravo president Lauren] Zalaznick said nothing has been firmed.” From the reunion, Zalaznick says we can expect “more than the chatty bitchfests that are the hallmark for sour grapes reunion shows.” Except wasn’t that exactly what the reunion was last year, with the addition of a kicked-over wine glass and a storming-off cast member?
