'America's Next Top Model' To Return For 21st Cycle

The CW

"America's Next Top Model" will return for a 21st cycle and once again feature male and female contestants.

The decade old reality series spiced up the competition this year when for the first time men were allowed to compete with the female models for the title of Top Model.

Dates for the start of production and the premiere for the next cycle have not been announced, but it is probably a safe bet that it will debut next Summer with The CW saying: "'America's Next Top Model' has played an important part in The CW’s original summer programming strategy, as the long-running reality series kicked-off during the late summer months and carried on into The CW’s fall launch."

Cycle 20 is currently airing, with the winner to be announced on the November 15 finale.

"America's Next Top Model" airs Fridays at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
