America's Next Top Model's next season will give reality TV viewers a chance to see some familiar faces get behind the camera once again.
The CW has announced it has ordered a seventeenth season of America's Next Top Modelfor broadcast next fall which will feature models from the past 16 editions returning to compete in the franchise's first-ever all-stars edition.
In addition, the network also announced that it has ordered an eighteenth edition of America's Next Top Model for broadcast later in the 2011-2012 television season.
While viewers might expect America's Next Top Model's all-stars edition will base its casting decisions on the modeling skills and potential of former contestants, The CW apparently has another approach in mind.
America's Next Top Model all-stars will feature "the models who became breakout characters and... had the most memorable stories from past cycles," according to network.
Additional information about the all-star season's cast, judges and prizes won't be disclosed until a later date, according to the network.
