America's Next Top Model

The CW Network

Canceled doesn't mean canceled and dead certainly doesn't meant dead in the TV world. America's Next Top Model, which is set to come to an end on The CW after Cycle 22, could live to see another day.

According to Deadline, there's been talk about ANTM Cycle 23 heading to another platform, either a cable channel or a streaming service. Ken Mok, executive producer and showrunner, is said to be on board with taking the show elsewhere and Deadline reports Tyra Banks is lending her support and will likely continue as an executive producer, but her involvement on camera is still to be determined.

On October 14, Banks took to Twitter to announce the end of America's Next Top Model. "TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM22 should be our last cycle. I truly believe it's time. May your pics be forever fierce. Keep on Smizing!" She expanded her thoughts on Instagram, saying she's proud of what the show has accomplished. "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," she wrote on Instagram.

Top Model got it starts on UPN in 2003 before moving over to The CW when The WB and UPN merged. The mainstay reality show performs well in reruns across networks and on streaming platforms. It wouldn't be the first show to come back from the dead after cancellation/announcing its end. Take a look at other shows that have beaten TV death in the gallery below.
