A series that was canceled by its broadcast network may have found a way to come back to life. Writing on Deadline.com, Nellie Andreeva reports that the current 22nd cycle of “America’s Next Top Model,” which was canceled by the CW, may not be the last of the show after all.
“While the reality veteran is ending its run on the CW with a series finale on Dec. 4, I hear there is a possibility for a 23rd cycle elsewhere,” Andreeva reports. “I’ve learned that a new ‘Top Model’ installment is currently being pitched to cable and streaming outlets. It is being shepherded by ‘Top Model’ executive producer/showrunner Ken Mok.”
The possible reboot reportedly has the support of “Top Model” co-creator and star Tyra Banks, who is expected to remain with the program as an executive producer if the show continues. It was unclear, Andreeva notes, whether Banks would return in an on-air role.
