"America's Next Top Model" Cycle 22 will be the fashion-centric reality show's last as it was reported that it has been cancelled by The CW.

Host and creator Tyra Banks took to Twitter to deliver the news earlier this week which The CW confirmed afterwards.

"ANTM" debuted in May 2003 at the now-defunct UPN network, according to EW. The reality show is "a competition among traditional female models, before welcoming shorter beauties, plus-size women, and in recent seasons, men," the website said.

After UPN's merger with The WB in 2006, the show moved to The CW.

"I want to thank Tyra and Ken [Mok] for all their years of success in establishing a show that was not just popular in the US, but all across the world," CW president Mark Pedowitz said, as quoted by The Hollywood Reporter.

Per the website, the network is currently in talks about airing a retrospective "America's Next Top Model" special sometime late next year.

Banks also posted on Instagram about the show's fate.

"We have strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have travelled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it's time. It really is," she said, as quoted by Fashion N Style.

But fans aren't happy that "ANTM" has been cancelled.

"I CAN'T BELIEVE ITS CANCELLED!! Just announced today that this is the Last Season," one fan said.

Another one couldn't believe the news saying, "Is this the Last season?! Somebody tell me is not true!"

Others were disappointed that cycle 22 will be "ANTM's" last with many asking for more cycles.

Still, there was one fan who praised the show's 12-year run saying, "at least as a thank you for watching you're show all these years Tyra... have [Nyle] win, jus' sayin."

Having been cancelled, "America's Next Top Model" Cycle 22's finale on Friday, Dec. 4 will be the show's last episode.
