'America's Next Top Model' has been cancelled. Tyra Banks has revealed that the current series of the model search show, season 22, will be its last.
Referencing how she communicates with contestants on 'ANTM', Tyra tweeted:
This season's finale will air on December 4 and be the last ever episode of the reality TV show.
Tyra, 41, launched 'ANTM' in 2003 and has been joined by judges including Janice Dickinson, Twiggy and Nigel Barker during its run.
