Great news for “America’s Next Top Model” fans: the recently canceled competitive series is getting a reboot.
According to the New York Daily News, VH1 has picked up the show. It will continue to be produced by executive producer Ken Mok, who has led the series since its first season. Reportedly, Mok is the one who negotiated this new deal with VH1.
It is currently unclear whether or not Tyra Banks or the show’s veteran judge J. Alexander will continue their work with the series, but some seem to suspect that this may be the reason Tyra left her daytime talk show, “FABLife”.
“She said it was time for ‘Top Model’ to end but her show bombed and now it (‘ANTM’) is getting picked up again,” one insider noted.
“America’s Next Top Model” was canceled by The CW network back in October after 22 seasons.
“America’s Next Top Model was a successful franchise for two networks, first at UPN and then The CW, and it became not just a ratings hit, but a global pop culture phenomenon,” CW President Mark Pedowitz said in a statement at the time. “I want to thank Tyra and Ken for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the U.S., but all across the world.”
