Some delicious, unofficial news about “Project Runway” emerged today.
While we wait for Lifetime to confirm or deny the reports, we’ll speculate on this article posted by FutonCritic.com Tuesday. If there’s any truth to it, we’re definitely going to be glued to Lifetime on Thursday nights.
“Project Runway” is set to return next month with some old friends: Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice. Sources close to the series have indicated the eighth season of “Runway” will roll out Thursday, July 29 on Lifetime followed by spin-off “On The Road With Austin & Santino.”
The half-hour series follows the “Runway” alums as they cross the country finding women in need of a fashion makeover.
In addition, “Runway” will now air at 9:00/8:00c and run 90 minutes with “Austin & Santino” following at 10:30/9:30c. It’s not clear how or if “Models of the Runway” will be incorporated into the new season.
A Lifetime spokesperson wouldn’t confirm any of the above developments however multiple sources now insist it’s a done deal.
