SModelS is an automatized tool enabling the fast interpretation of simplified model results from the LHC within any model of new physics respecting a Z_2 symmetry. We here present a new version of SModelS, which can use the full likelihoods now provided by ATLAS in the form of pyhf JSON files. This much improves the statistical evaluation and therefore also the limit setting on new physics scenarios.
