" Fashion Star " wraps up Season 1 with its big finale on Mon., May 15 (10 p.m. ET on NBC), but host and executive producer Elle Macpherson is already looking toward the future. At the NBC upfront presentation in New York this week, Macpherson told The Huffington Post that there could be some changes when the show returns for a Season 2 . "I think we're going to jerk things around a little bit and you have to watch the space," Macpherson said when asked if all the judges will return. "We've done a great job and NBC has been 100 percent behind us. America's been behind this program." When pressed for specific details on the changes afoot, Macpherson remained coy. "You're going to have to watch the space," she said. The reality series features designers competing for a chance to have their clothing sold at reputable retail stores and Macpherson said the sales have been great. "From a business perspective, it's great to see a program like this taking off on NBC," she said. Check out a preview of the finale below. The "Fashion Star" finale airs Tues., May 15, 10 p.m. ET on NBC. The series returns to NBC's schedule in the fall on Sundays, 8 p.m. ET.
