The Season 14 alum took to Twitter to talk about what's next for her career.

Kornbread "The Snack" Jete is giving fans a definitive answer on whether or not she'll be returning to the Werk Room anytime soon.

In a recent tweet, the 30-year-old drag performer who came into the national spotlight earlier this year after starring in the currently ongoing 14th season of RuPaul's Drag Race confirmed that she will not be returning to compete in next year's 15th season of the beloved reality drag competition.

"My run on season 14 was nothing short of AMAZING," Kornbread wrote in her Twitter statement. "Unfortunately, I will not be returning to season 15 of RuPaul's Drag Race."

Though she didn't say what exactly just yet, she did tease that "great things ahead" are in store for her and her career, while also thanking her fans for the constant love and support she's been receiving since her time on the show.

"I love and appreciate you all for the support!" she said. "Let's make magic!"

During a shocking episode of season 14 of Drag Race that aired in early February, it was revealed that Kornbread, who made herstory when she and fellow queen Kerri Colby entered into the Werk Room as the first two out trans contestants to be competing in the same season, had to be pulled from the competition after suffering an ankle injury that a physician said required six to eight weeks of rest.

This wasn't the first time an injury has sent home a Drag Race competitor.

During season nine in 2017, Eureka O'Hara had to famously leave early after suffering a leg injury during a cheerleading-themed challenge, but she was invited to return to compete again in season 10 the following year, where she made it to the finale. More recently, Drag Race UK's Victoria Scone, the franchise's first-ever cis woman competitor, was also sent home due to an injury.

In a follow-up tweet, Kornbread also opened up about the possibility of doing a season of All Stars, shutting down any rumors about it.

"And no I'm not on anybody's All Stars," she wrote. "Wasn't my decision :)"
