Though a representative for Playboy Enterprises, Inc. announced in 2015 that the magazine would no longer feature nudity, the company's chief operating officer, Cooper Hefner, Hugh Hefner's son, confirmed on Monday that's no longer the case.
The change will go into effect with the March/April 2017 issue.
"I'll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake," Hefner said in a statement. "Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn't a problem. Today we're taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are."
