In a statement to our sister site Deadline, Lifetime cited scheduling issues as the reason behind the surprising judge swap.

Kors, however, won’t be MIA from the season entirely. “Always part of the Project Runway family, Michael will be seen in the future on the show,” the cabler shared. “And we are excited to confirm that Michael will be back as a judge for the Season 11 finale.”
