TVLine Items: Project Runway's All-Star Plan, A Pretty Little Preview, and More TV News to Know

Project Runway returns this summer for a ninth season, but that’s not the big news: Lifetime’s designer-drama competition is putting together an all-star edition.

Back in 2009, Runway ran a two-hour All-Stars special. However, this time around the best of the best are getting another stab at the top prize via their very own eight-episode season. No word yet on which former contestants will be returning.

Lifetime also has another Runway spinoff on the way, titled Project Accessory, about — you guessed it — accessories!

  • As far as Project Runway goes, I’m kinda hoping they reach out to Jack, Rami and Chris (Season 4); Chloe and Nick (Season 2); Robert, Laura and Allison (Season 3) and Austin from the first season.
