'Next Top Model' reborn for VH1

'America's Next Top Model' will jump to VH1, but Tyra Banks will pick a new host

Cancellation isn't what it used to be.

"America' Next Top Model," which ended a 22-season run in December on The CW, is returning and jumping to VH1. Executive producer Tyra Banks will pick a new host.

Banks said in a statement: "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 said the reinvented show will be set in New York City, but the premiere date, new host and judges will be announced later. There will be 14 episodes.

Ken Mok, another executive producer for the series' full history, will be back in that capacity.

VH1, CBS Television Distribution and Banks are partners on the relaunched "Model."
