Is “America’s Next Top Model” Coming to an End?
Way back in 2003, former supermodel Tyra Banks launched her first post-modeling venture in the form of a reality competition show called, “America’s Next Top Model.” The show went on to bring new and diverse faces to the fashion and entertainment industries, most notably with Eva Marcille, Yaya DaCosta, Eugena Washington, Danielle (Dani) Evans and Don Benjamin among others.
Today, Banks sent out a tweet letting fans and viewers know the show is reaching its end.
TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM22 should be our last cycle. I truly believe it’s time. May your pics be forever fierce. Keep on Smizing! 💛Tyra

In recent years, “America’s Next Top Model,” has gone through many changes with the departure of judges Jay Manuel, Janice Dickinson and Jay Alexander. The show is now coed and features male models. Banks’ “FABLife” co-host, Chrissy Teigen, responded to the tweet saying “Nooooo!!”
“America’s Next Top Model” is currently in its 21st cycle and airs Fridays at 9/8c on The CW.
