More Project Runway, Junior, All-Stars coming, plus fashion Shark Tank

More Project Runway, Junior, All-Stars coming, plus fashion Shark Tank

Season 15 of Project Runway, which begins production shortly, will be the 10th season to air on Lifetime. But after it concludes, the show is going nowhere: Deadline reports that Lifetime has renewed the show and its spin-offs for six more seasons collectively. Specifically:

  • Project Runway has been renewed for three seasons: 16, 17, and 18
  • Project Runway All-Stars has been renewed for two more seasons: 6 and 7
  • Project Runway Junior has been renewed for one more season: season 2

The single-season renewal for Junior is absolutely welcome but I can’t help but be a little disappointed that All-Stars, which I find insufferable, got two more seasons while Junior, which was everything I love about Project Runway, and really, the best show of the franchise.

Fashion Shark Tank also coming to Lifetime

Lifetime’s deal with The Weinstein Company is “valued at about $50 million,” Deadline reports.

The network has also picked up TWC’s Fashion Inc., which is basically a fashion version of Shark Tank with panelists that include Birchbox founder Katia Beauchamp, designer Rebecca Minkoff; Gwynnie Bee CEO Christine Hunsicker; and Gary Wassner.

The exclusive Deadline story quotes A+E President Nancy Dubuc and TWC’s Harvey Weinstein in what sound suspiciously like press release quotes. Debuc said: “Project Runway is a great franchise. It’s got an incredibly loyal audience, it’s a brand unto itself, and it has all these Emmy nominations. We have a great relationship with Harvey, Heidi and Tim, and I’m glad its home will be here for many years to come.”

And in a similarly effusive quote, Weinstein said, “fans’ loyalty to Runway and its sister shows Project Runway All Stars and Junior have made the franchise a cornerstone of our TV division. We couldn’t have better partners than Nancy, Rob (Sharenow) and the entire Lifetime network.”

And Deadline, don’t forget Deadline.
