America's Next Top Model is coming back!

Just four months after announcing the end of the long-running competition series, VH1 announced on Tuesday that the fashion franchise will be returning to our TV screens.

"After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn," ANTM's former host and executive producer Tyra Banks said in a statement.

But here's the real question: will the "smize" inventor also return as the series' host? Sorry to burst your fashion-loving bubbles, but it looks like the answer is no.

"I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host," Banks continued in the press release. "I'm pumped to identify that person and bring back the show."

VH1 revealed that details on the premiere date and a new, re-imagined cast of host and judges will be announced at a later time, but we do know that the upcoming revival season will feature 14 all-new episodes.

Ken Mok, who also served as executive producer for the series' full run, will continue in the same role for the next season as well.

Banks added, "Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!"

But it looks like there is one Top Model fan who isn't going to be too thrilled with this small screen return. When ETonline caught up with the "final" ANTM winner, Nyle DiMarco, the male model revealed that he would prefer the series return in a slightly different capacity.

"I would like to be the final winner, but it would be nice to see it come back," DiMarco revealed. "Maybe in another venue, or another kind of reincarnation. You know, another approach to the modeling world."
