While still gearing up to premiere the 18th cycle of "America's Next Top Model", The CW has already renewed the reality series for a 19th season. Confirming the new season pick-up, a representative for the network reveals the said installment will be the show's inaugural college edition.
With such new twist, the modeling competition will head to campuses across the nation to cast the contestants. It is expected to premiere in the fall, but no further details are available regarding the 19th cycle.
Prior to launching the first college-themed season, "ANTM" will debut its 18th installment Wednesday, February 29 at 9 P.M. on The CW. In this "British Invasion" edition, seven models from previous seasons of "Britain's Next Top Model" will compete with seven American model hopefuls.
A cast photo and a preview video from the 18th cycle have recently been released for sneak peeks. Tyra Banks will return as the judge alongside Kelly Cutrone and Nigel Barker. Detailed info on the contestants can be seen on the show's official site.
