The announcement was made at BravoCon 2022's "Project Runway of Their World" panel. Season 19 ended with a female winner, Shantall Lacayo. As of March 2023, Lifetime has not officially renewed Project Runway for a 20th season. There is currently no release date scheduled for the new season.

Project Runway was created by Eli Holzman, who developed the show for Miramax Television and its subsidiary, The Weinstein Company. The show premiered on Bravo in December 2004 and quickly became a hit, featuring aspiring fashion designers competing in various design challenges to win a cash prize and a chance to launch their own fashion line.


The show's judges have included fashion industry icons such as Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors, and Zac Posen. Tim Gunn, a fashion consultant and educator, served as a mentor to the designers for 16 seasons. In 2018, the show moved from its longtime home at Bravo to Lifetime for one season before returning to Bravo for its 17th season in 2019. The show has also spawned several spin-offs, including Project Runway: All Stars, Project Runway: Junior, and Project Runway: Fashion Startup.


Throughout its history, Project Runway has been praised for its ability to showcase emerging fashion designers and its impact on the fashion industry. It has also faced controversy, particularly in 2017 when allegations of sexual harassment against producer Harvey Weinstein, who was one of the show's original creators, came to light. Despite this, the show has continued to thrive and inspire designers around the world.
