Because seemingly nothing every really dies on TV anymore, “America’s Next Top Model” is getting a second life in a new home.
VH1 has ordered a new cycle of the show, which ended on The CW in December after 22 cycles since 2003. The cable channel was a long-time home of repeats of the show.
Rumors of VH1 reviving the series, which began on UPN and moved to The CW in 2006, had been in the air for a couple of months. It’s official now.
“Top Model” creator Tyra Banks will remain an executive producer on the revived show, but she won’t be on camera as host. A new panel of judges will likely join the series as well.
VH1 has ordered 14 episodes of “Top Model.” A premiere date hasn’t been set.
