Tyra Banks and company are about to be kicked off the runway. After 22 seasons, the CW has announced that it has cancelled America’s Next Top Model.

The modeling reality competition is currently airing its 22nd and now final cycle, with the finale scheduled for Friday, December 4. The CW is also working on a potential retrospective special looking back at the show’s history for 2016.

America’s Next Top Model debuted in 2003 on UPN and moved to the CW when the network started in 2006. It’s been the CW’s signature reality program, but its end leaves the network without a reality competition program.

The end of ANTM comes one day after the CW also announced the cancellation of Beauty and the Beast after four seasons.

ANTM currently airs Fridays at 9pm on the CW.
