Well, here’s something to smize about. America’s Next Top Model has a premiere date.
The show will debut on VH1 on Monday, Dec. 12, more than a year since its season 22 finale.
The new season, which will feature an all-female cast of aspiring supermodels, will see the show return to New York City. However, Tyra Banks won’t be returning as the host and main judge, a role she’d held in the show’s inception. Instead, singer and actress Rita Ora will serve as host, with Banks remaining on as an executive producer, making on-camera appearances throughout the season.
Joining Ora will be a judges panel that consists of supermodel Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine Chief Creative Officer Drew Elliot, and celebrity stylist Law Roach.
The last 22 cycles of America’s Next Top Model aired on The CW and UPN.
America’s Next Top Model premieres Monday, Dec. 12 at 10 p.m. ET on VH1.
