Project Runway Season 20 Latest Updates You Need to Know!

The reality competition show “Project Runway” focuses on fashion design. There’s nothing like a design competition to unite the best minds in the industry. New challenges and eliminations take place each week, and the series’ finalists get to display their collections at New York Fashion Week.

It launched in 2004 on Bravo, went to Lifetime, then returned to Bravo in 2019 for its 19th season thanks to creator Eli Holzman (via The Wrap).

While fans always enjoy watching new candidates show off their skills, they can’t help but wonder ahead: Who will leave at the end, who will win all of it, and when will even more contestants be included, when the 20th season of this popular and lengthy series is finally announced?

Find out all of these “Project Runway” details and more down below!

The 20th Season of Project Runway Has Not Yet Been Announced

According to The Wrap, filming for the current season commenced in February 2020. In April 2021, Bravo told Variety that production would begin “shortly.”

Previously, the 17th season aired from March 14 to June 13 of 2019, and the 18th from December 5, 2019, to March 12, 2020. (via Bravo TV). As with many TV shows, though, the pandemic caused to a delays in filming and production, as mentioned by MEAWW, but Season 19 of “Project Runway” finally started on October 14, 2021.

In addition to delayed, several series and the teams around them have also been grappling with some other struggle: The threat of being cancelled. In fact, only this year, “American Gods,” “A.P. Bio,” “Better Call Saul,” “Black-ish,” “Good Girls,” “Ozark,” and “The Sinner,” to mention a few, have been cut short and ended (via Rotten Tomatoes).

The fact is that “Project Runway” has still not been renewed for a 20th season, thus it is still too early to call. A premiere in 2022 would be ideal if the show were to continue after attaining this significant milestone, but only time will tell (via Next TV Series).

Who Will Star in the Upcoming Season?

From the start, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn served as that of the host and mentor on “Project Runway,” respectively. However, in 2018, they made their exit and shifted over to “Making the Cut” on Amazon Video (through Good Housekeeping) (via Good Housekeeping).

After that, Karlie Kloss and Christian Siriano — who won Season 4 — took over after them, with Brandon Maxwell, Elaine Welteroth, and Nina Garcia sitting as judges. Kloss is expected to participate in a few episodes in Season 19, Variety reports, due to the fact that she just had a baby and the show is “reimagining the host role.”

It was impossible to fathom the program without Klum and Gunn, but some still haven’t quite acclimated to the shift. However, if those two staples were to be removed, then no one would be safe. Just look at Kloss: The host normally plays such a crucial part in the tournament, however things seems to have proceeded on without her.

Darren Apolonio, Katie Kortman, Kenneth Barlis, Kristina Kharlashkina and Zayden Skipper are among the Season 19 designers. Aaron Michael and Anna Yinan Zhou are among the Season 19 designers, as are Bones Jones and Caycee Black and Shantall Lacayo and Zayden Skipper are among the Season 19 designers (via Bravo TV).

Just as we must wait for word on a premiere date, we also must look forward to hearing which designer will be on Season 20.

What Further Details Are Available Regarding Season 20?

It will be intriguing to observe how fans continue responding to the latest season of “Project Runway,” and how Season 20 is presented and welcomed.

Early on in Season 19, Meg Ferguson decided to switch models with Kenneth Barlis, as he tried to design for an Asian male. After a few moments, she told Barlis, “I believe it’s f****** bulls*** that you’re doing this now.”

Addressing her model, she said, “Apparently, I can only create for white folks” (via Reality Blurred) (via Reality Blurred). Fans took to social media to express their opinions, with one tweet noting, “It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this.”

“As soon as the first episode aired, I was hooked. And I just can’t with just this woke bulls***. It’s exciting to watch the designers grow and develop. I’m here for the fashion and the challenges. Astuteness has taken centre stage. Sadly, you’ve lost one of your supporters.”

Of course, everyone has their own perspective, but will Season 20 of “Project Runway” happen? Hopefully, it does and we will get more info on it all soon, as fans continue to see latest ideas each week on current season!
