Take a look at the announcement below:

The show spent it's first five years on Bravo before moving to the A&E-owned Lifetime after negotiatinos by The Weinstein Company, who'd owned the series. The contract was breached when Harvey Weinstein became the subject of scores of allegations of sexual assault, thus allowing the fashion reality program to move back to Bravo. 

"This franchise will be an important cornerstone to complement Bravo's original premium scripted and unscripted slate, and we expect it to drive the same level of fan-dom and passion as we experienced last time it was on Bravo," said Frances Berwick, President Lifestyle Networks and NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, in a statement.
