VH1 Picks Up New Season of ‘America’s Next Top Model’

This Will Be the 23rd Edition of the Veteran Reality/Competition

Veteran “America’s Next Top Model,” which was recently axed by The CW after 22 editions in total (including its early run on former network UPN), has a new lease of life courtesy of VH1. The reality/competition will return to New York City for this new season on VH1 without host Tyra Banks, who will serves as an executive producer. There will also be a new panel of judges, who have not been announced yet.

“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.”

The new installment will have 14 episodes.
