Less than three months after “America’s Next Top Model” ended its run, news broke today that the show will be revived, and a search is on for a new host.
Show creator Tyra Banks announced late last year that she was pulling the plug on the reality staple, which wrapped after 22 cycles.
The series debuted on UPN in 2003 before becoming a mainstay of the CW, where it aired from 2006-2015. USA Today reports that the show will be resurrected on VH1 for a 14-episode season.
The new version will originate from New York City and will feature a new panel of judges. The premiere date has not been announced.
In a statement, Banks said: “After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn. 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.”
