Banks left the series when The CW cancelled it after season 22 in 2015. VH1 revived the model competition show for season 23 with Rita Ora as host and Ashley Graham, Drew Elliott, and Law Roach as judges.
The new season of America’s Next Top Model will begin production this summer. There’s no word yet on who the judges will be the season 24.
From executive producer Ken Mok:
Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize. We’d like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro. She infused this new iteration of ANTM with passion and creativity and we wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of America’s Next Top Model? Are you glad Tyra is back?
