‘America’s Next Top Model’ Renewed For Another Season

Published: Tuesday 18th Nov 2014 by Sam

Tyra Banks continues to prove bankable for The CW.

For, the network today announced the renewal of the diva’s long-running ‘America’s Next Top Model’ franchise for a new season – its 22nd “cycle”.

Details below…

According to TV Line, Top Model – which is nearing the end of its 21st cycle – will be back in 2015.

Launched in 2003, the show has been the network’s main reality staple for a decade and, while ratings aren’t what they once were, it continues to pull in respectable numbers. The last episode, for example, drew 1.2 million viewers.

In a bid to reinvent itself, the last two seasons of the series have seen doors opened to both female and male contestants, a trend which has been confirmed to continue for its next run.


While several years removed from its heyday, the renewal is very much a victory for Banks and the dedicated fans of the show. Sure, it hasn’t succeeded in finding and launching the new Naomi Campbell or Kate Moss. Yet, in an era where shows such as The Voice and modern-day American Idol return year in and out with previous winners nowhere in sight, is it fair to fault Top Model for skewing more entertainment than anything else? We vote no. Especially when the show has launched the “careers” (albeit not modelling) of Eva Marcille, Yaya DaCosta, Toccarra Jones and more.

    Antm will never be cancelled, because there is a market for the show. Every gay or str8 guy in American want to be in TV by any means possible, Americans can do anything for attention, pose n*** 24/7 without getting paid on Facebook or do free s** tape the thirsty is real.

    I do enjoy watching a classic marathon of ANTM on the weekend, but I personally haven’t watched a full season of this show in years but I did watch the all star season. Good for u tyra but I just feel as though the show lost ALL its magic when upn merged with the cw, and ALL black shows on basic cabel suffered a great deal. (Upn was the black network for tv sitcoms in the mid 00s &90s). But hey if last episode received over a million views, that’s not too bad n that is good for a cw show.

    i’m not surprised the show is still great and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

    I think the problem with the show is that it increasingly concentrates more on the conflicts and personal drama of the contestants instead of the fashion segments. I personally find that really irritating, because I want to see the photo shoots or other fashion-related things, not the participants constantly whining or yelling at each other :-).
