'America's Next Top Model' Cancelled After 22 Cycles

America’s Next Top Model is coming to an end.

According to, the CW is cancelling the modeling competition show after its current 22nd cycle, which will air a series finale on Friday, December 4 @ 9/8c.

Host and judge Tyra Banks took to Instagram to write a goodbye letter to the show.

“Thinking #ANTM #cycle22 should be our last cycle,” Tyra wrote. “Yeah, I truly believe it’s time. Our diehard fans know we’ve expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it’s time. It really is.”

“Wow, I am SO proud of what Top Model has done.

#ANTM brought the intimidating modeling world to the masses. We were the first reality show based in the fashion world. I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. And I never thought we’d do 22 cycles. Whoa! So many!!! And what rhymes with 22? You. And you and you and you and you! YOU made Top Model what it is. We are a global force that has so many international versions around the world because of YOU! That’s amazing and beyond anything that I ever dreamed.

I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) – the stuff about you that makes you well…you. And I hope you’ve learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy.

Fierce & Love,

    Had she gone back and embraced the original concept and judges, she wouldn’t have lost her core audience. The only semi-interesting new change was adding guys to the mix. But all that other nonsense with social media, Bryanboy, and that absurd, juvenile “Model Land” book and fake Harvard degree, that stuff made it go downhill fast. When she began shoving her liberal social-justice-warrior politics (and her utter adoration of Obama) in everyone’s face, she was done. I’m glad Angelea Preston is speaking out about the show…it’s about time.
