We’ve seen a long line of twists and turns on ten seasons of “Project Runway,” now producers are looking to spice up the franchise with one of the biggest changes yet.

Season 11 of the Lifetime show will feature the show’s first ever “team edition,” according to Lifetime. Yes, contestants will be divided up into teams each every single week, forcing the designers to work together “while ensuring their own garments stand out on the runway,” the network says on the show’s site.

Competitors this year will span the world, including Brazil, Thailand, and Australia as well as the US. Given the international flavor, designers will be shipped to different countries for their challenges.

E! News reports that guest judges are set to include Emmy Rossum, John Legend, Miranda Lambert, Susan Sarandon and Bette Midler.

Season 11 of “Project Runway” is set to premiere on Jan. 24 at 9 p.m.
