With the news that Bravo has confirmed Season 3 to "return this summer", probably on July 12, the transition to two seasons of Project Runway per year appears to be in motion. But what about Season 4?
Assuming that filming remains at Parsons, Season 3 will most likely shoot in June with the Final 3 showing at OFW in September. There is a small window of opportunity in the Parsons academic calendar to shoot Season 4 in August for a Final 3 OFW show in February 2007. (Season 1 was filmed at Parsons in August 2004). This would allow Season 4 to premiere in December 2006.
But that begs a few questions: Will the S3 Final 3 have enough energy left to complete 13 looks in 2 months? Will Bravo hold additional auditions for S4 this summer while S3 is still being broadcast? Or will they pull the S4 cast from the latest round of auditions?
