Project Runway returns to Lifetime for its twelfth season.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the new season will include a returning contestant from a past season. The show also announced a new interactive component for fans.
Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly explains, “The new installment of the competition that will feature the return of judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and mentor Tim Gunn will give fans the power to bring back an old designer who is desperate to redeem him (or her) self. There will also be an opportunity for viewers to weigh in on the challenges as part of a new interactive on-screen feature.”
Guest judges for the upcoming season will include Kate Bosworth, Kelly Osbourne, Sigourney Weaver, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kaley Cuoco, as well as Stacy Keibler and original Project Runway judge Michael Kors.
