“Project Runway All Stars” is coming back- and with it comes a surprising cast of former “Project Runway” designers. The all new cast was revealed this morning by the Lifetime Television Network, which has been home to the popular reality television fashion competition since its move from Bravo.
Previous seasons of the “Project Runway” spin-off have featured quirky designers to fan favorites. For season three the series is getting serious. When they say “All Stars” this season they mean it. Yes, that’s right, some “Project Runway” champions are coming back to defend their titles.
The all new season of “All Stars” will feature:
Ari South (formerly known as Andy South)
Seth Aaron Henderson
While fans are, of course, excited to see winners like Jeffrey Sebelia and Seth Aaron Henderson fight it out on the runway many are just as excited to see the designers they thought should have won their seasons have a chance to prove that they are the real all stars.
As in previous seasons of the show viewers will see a new host. It was announced this past June that Alyssa Milano would be taking over hosting duties when the series returned. The role was previously filled by Carolyn Murphy last season and Angela Lindvall in season one.

Joanna Coles stepped down as mentor after last season and has been replaced with Zana Roberts Rassi. Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will be renewing their traditional roles as judges on the show.

Lifetime also used the announcement of the designer cast to announce the start date for the new series. “Project Runway All Stars” season three will premiere on October 24 at 9:00 on the Lifetime Television Network. As usual it is timed to start up just as the current “Project Runway” season ends.
