Lifetime Delays Project Runway Season Six Until January

Lifetime Pushes Project Runway to January

Looks like we won't be getting three seasons of Project Runway crammed into this year after all. Lifetime's been saying for months now that its first season of Runway would premiere in November, but now that's been pushed till January.

If it happens at all, that is. NBC is challenging whether Lifetime even has the rights to air the show, and a lawsuit over the show is still pending in court.

Nobody's directly blaming the lawsuit for the delay, though. One source told Entertainment Weekly that Bunim/Murray, the Real World producers who are taking over the show from Magical Elves when it moves to Lifetime, couldn't get production organized for a Fall start. Another source disputed that, though, saying casting is done for season six and the production was totally on schedule.

Either way, a Lifetime representative said this change means Runway will be back on its regular, two-seasons-per-year schedule — which makes me breathe a big sigh of relief. I'm already feeling overloaded from this year's two seasons, and I wasn't sure I could psych myself up for a third. Now at least we'll have a little bit of a break to regroup before we see what Lifetime does with the show. What do you think — good news or bad news?

I love PR, but I think it's time to pull the plug. They should go out on top, before America gets REALLY sick of it. I had a hard time getting into this season and I doubt I'll follow it to Lifetime.

misshouston, I was wondering the same thing about how they were going to eliminate enough contestants in time for New York fashion week. LA fashion week just doesn't have the same prestige...I guess it's good that it good moved until January, so we will have time to actually miss the show, but I still don't think this move to Lifetime is a good idea. I have a feeling that they will lose a lot of viewers.

misshouston — I was thinking about the same thing. I wonder if they'd have fewer contestants (10 or so) so they could be down to 4 by the time of February's fashion week? I'm with you about this season -- I've been bugging the FabSugar gals for any info from their side, but they haven't heard anything! I wonder if this Wednesday's show will eliminate, like, four people? :)

I think it's an odd choice if the final showdown will be at New York Fashion Week, which is scheduled for early February--not a lot of time to whittle the competition down to the final three or even four. (Even this season has me scratching my head over how many contestants are left with the PR Fashion Week show scheduled for this Friday!)I've heard that the finale might be moved to L.A. Fashion Week, which takes place in March. It makes sense considering the show's move to L.A., but it just doesn't have the prestige of the Bryant Park shows.Guess we'll all have to "watch what happens!"

i think that it's good news. it's funny - i used to always watch the show and i haven't really paid any attention to this season - so i'm not sure if it'll even be successful on Lifetime. i'm sure that they know what they are doing - and kind of hope that maybe with a bit of distance from the end of this season they will have higher ratings since people will have missed it. hopefully by then the lawsuit will be settled too - it's just insanity at this point i think.
