Howard Stern has revealed he will return as a judge for America's Got Talent's upcoming ninth season, but it may be his last stint on the reality talent competition.

"I am very excited to be going back to America's Got Talent. I will go back [for] one more season," Stern said Tuesday on his SiriusXM radio show, according to People.

The two-time judge, 59, appeared on the show's last two seasons, its seventh and eighth editions.

"It started out as a goof. Now it's becoming a job," Stern reportedly said, adding that his decision on whether to take on the role again was a tough one.

"I really, really did struggle with this decision because... I've been working a long time. I really wanted to decide if this was going to take away too much... free time. Did I really still enjoy doing it? Did I have something to say? Is it something I should be involved with still? I decided I needed a personal life, but that big black hole in me that demands attention... it won."

Stern joined America's Got Talent for its seventh season in 2012 as a replacement for former judge Piers Morgan. Stern sat on the panel beside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel.

For the series' eighth edition, which aired this past summer, Stern worked with Mandel again in addition to new judges Melanie Brown and Heidi Klum

During Stern's Tuesday radio show, the host said he assumed the other eighth-season judges will also be returning for another round of the reality talent competition next year, People reported. 

"[They are] lovely people," Stern said of Klum, Brown and Mandel. "And if they want to come back, God bless them."

Auditions for America's Got Talent's ninth season are currently underway and will conclude in February.
