Are you in need of more runway disasters, designer auf'ing and Kors-ian bitchery in your life? Well, good news - the eighth season of Project Runway is set to premier on Lifetime on Thursday, July 29th @ 9pm/EST.

A release from TheFutonCritic.com yesterday revealed some details about the upcoming season, answering the prayers from my promo sighting two weeks ago:
Sources close to the series have indicated the eighth season of "Runway" will roll out Thursday, July 29 on Lifetime followed by spin-off "On The Road With Austin & Santino."
The half-hour series follows the "Runway" alums as they cross the country finding women in need of a fashion makeover.

In addition, "Runway" will now air at 9:00/8:00c and run 90 minutes with "Austin & Santino" following at 10:30/9:30c. It's not clear how or if "Models of the Runway" will be incorporated into the new season.
Extending Runway from 60 to 90 minutes is an interesting choice. Will they incorporate the heinous Models of the Runway into the mix, or will we get to see more of the design process and Tim Gunn consultations? I'm hoping for the latter, but I'm also not holding my breath. And if On The Road With Austin & Santino sounds a bit like the upcoming RuPaul's Drag U to  you... well, it should. But that doesn't mean we can't watch it, right...?
