After swirling rumors that began around the beginning of the year, it has been confirmed that America’s Next Top Model will be returning later this year on VH1!

Though Tyra Banks will continue to serve as executive producer, she will not be hosting the newly revamped show, which will feature new host and judges, to be announced at a later time. Take a look at what Scott Koondel, chief licensing officer for CBS Corp, had to say below:

We could not be more excited to bring back and breathe new life into one of the greatest unscripted franchises on television.


Tyra added:

VH1 is the perfect partner for this new endeavor and we hope this is the beginning of a long relationship. 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. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!

Vh1 has ordered 14 episodes of the new season, which will now take place in New York City.

The show’s cancellation was confirmed on October 14, 2015 and the series originally concluded on December 4, 2015. It was the last show originally from UPN to end its run.
