Tyra Banks’ reality modeling competition America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) will be returning to television. The series which ended its run on The CW in December 2015, will return to New York City for this new iteration, however, Banks will not continue as host.
VH1 is giving the reality show a new life in the form of a 14-episode season. After 22 cycles of models, the supermodel is stepping down as host, but will continue as executive producer. The new ANTM will also introduce a new panel of judges.
“After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn,” said Banks in a statement. “I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”
