The New York Fashion Week is one of the most awaited and premium events that have styled and redesigned the field of design over the years. While this is a global event, America is never behind being the host. It comes up with some of the best fashion lineups that can blow anyone’s mind away. It houses some of the most premium brands and brings the most renowned designers from across the globe.

What if we told you a show has been providing esteemed designers a chance to showcase their best collections that could make it to the New York Fashion Week? But what if we told you that it is not without the drama, bickering, and logical battles among these designers to criticize each other? Well, if you have guessed what we are talking about, it is Project Runway, which has had over 20 seasons now, with the latest season’s finale premiering on September 8, 2023. With the show coming out with a fresh season almost every year, fans are curious to know if there is a season 21. Here is all we know so far about Project Runway Season 21.

The following are the reasons for the show to be renewed;

  • It has already been renewed for 20 seasons by the network, which shows the viewership numbers are high
  • Bravo network has some long-running franchises like Top Chef, and they would want Project Runway to be a part of it
  • They are not going to run out of ideas or scripts as they are backed by the New York Fashion Week with their themes
  • The show is one of its kind, as there are very few shows around fashion that blend with the reality competition genre
  • There are always new fashion designers joining the industry and making their mark
  • This show can be scaled to a global level, too

  • Completion of this year’s New York Fashion Week
  • Lack of official renewal
  • Time of production and post-production, which begins post-New York Fashion Week
