Producers of Naomi Campbell's reality TV show The Face had planned for weeks to replace judges Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha after just one season.
The supermodel launched her TV career earlier this year (13) by joining the show, on which she and two other catwalk beauties compete to discover the new face of a top retailer.
It was reported over the weekend (31Aug13-01Sep13) that Kurkova and Rocha had decided not to shoot a second season, but now it has emerged producers had planned all along to replace two judges at the end of the first series, and it was their decision for the pair not to return.
A source close to the production tells WENN, "This transition has actually been in the works for quite some time and it was always the intention to sign two new mentors for each season. An announcement from the network is coming early this week. Naomi and team have found two new supermodels that will surely make for an even better second season."
