Kornbread, who’s also known as The Snack, was forced to leave RuPaul’s Drag Race due to an injury.
The 30-year-old was a frontrunner throughout her season of the competition.
Following her early departure from the show, fans expected to see The Snack return for season 15.
Kornbread has since gone onto star in Hocus Pocus 2, which completed this year.
The star has planned to be back performing soon.
“A lot of health things will be changing for me and I’m grateful for all the support!” she said.
“Ready to get back to the stage again! Much love -KB.”
Several Drag Race alumni showed their support following her announcement.
Season 13 star Kandy Muse wrote: “I love you.”
Season three winner and All Stars 7’s Raja sent: “much love to you baby girl”.
