CW will air UK’s Top Model

The British version of Top Model will air on The CW after this current cycle concludes. On Dec. 13 and Dec. 20 at 8 p.m. ET, The CW will air the two-hour specials that highlight the first two seasons of Britain’s Next Top Model.

Variety notes that this is “the first airing of foreign editions of a popular reality format on a U.S. broadcast network.”

Titled Next Top Model: British Invasion and Next Top Model: British Invasion 2 will each feature an entire season condensed into two hours, which actually might have been a good idea for this season.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
