A report that Project Runway is moving to Los Angeles for its sixth season is only partially true, as the show will spend time in New York, too, returning there for the Fashion Week finale. The series will also return to New York full-time for season seven.
A Lifetime spokesperson told New York Magazine that they “are only splitting season six between NY and LA solely to accommodate Heidi Klum’s schedule and the show will return to NY for the seventh season.” A Weinstein Company spokesperson confirmed that told the New York Post, “Heidi’s been traveling a great deal and she wanted to be closer to her family.”
The show will be back in New York for Fashion Week next spring. Still, one of the show’s executive producers, Desiree Gruber, told the paper that the L.A. setting would impact the season. “There’s not a designer who has not been incredibly inspired by Hollywood. Season 6 designers will have a chance to be up close and personal with the Hollywood scene and see what they can do with it,” she said.
