Tyra Banks Is Back, Pretty Much Terrifying in ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Cycle 24 Trailer (VIDEO)


Tyra Banks is back... and we are kind of scared, to be honest.

The longtime host and executive producer of America's Next Top Model will make her triumphant return to the show with the upcoming Cycle 24, and as the first-look trailer proves, she means business.

There's not exactly a "we were all rooting for you!" moment just yet, but it's only a matter of time if the sneak peek is any indication!

VH1 revealed in March that Tyra, who hasn't hosted the show since 2015 but stayed behind-the-scenes as executive producer, would be returning to the long-running series, replacing Rita Ora, who subbed in as host for just one season.

And after months of waiting, we're finally getting our first look at the smize queen herself back in action.

In a trailer posted to ANTM's official Facebook page, the 44-year-old is back with a vengeance.

"Ty Ty's ready for you," she says as she struts down the runway.

"This is deeply rooted psychological warfare," a contestant can be heard saying in a voiceover.

See? The girls are kind of terrified, too!

And though it seems the mom of one will be her good ol' diva self in the new cycle, there's quite a few things that are different this go-round.

For one, there's no age limit this season, and models from "age 18 to infinity" could be cast, as she put it.

The new season will also bring back old favorites Ashley Graham, Drew Elliott and Law Roach as judges.

Plus, Eva Marcille, Cycle 3 winner and Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie, and good ol' Nigel Barker will make appearances, too.

We cannot wait to see the new batch of episodes — here's to hoping Tyra's adorable son York makes some cameos, too!
