The CW Renews Three Shows Featuring Models and Magic

The good news: The CW has renewed three of its shows! The not-as-good news: They're probably not the CW shows you watch. Though the network is known for hiring actors who look like models and do magical things on camera, this trio of newly re-upped series focuses on actual models and magic. 

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for America's Next Top ModelPenn & Teller: Fool Us, and Masters of Illusion

America's Next Top Model is headed into its 22nd cycle, and will once again feature both male and female contestants as they vie to win the titular title/be the next ANTM alum to have a shot at starring on a quickly canceled ABC show

Penn & Teller: Fool Us will return for a second season of magic-trick mastery. The series' first season on The CW was simply an import/replay of the U.K. show of the same name, and as the title suggests, it focused on world-famous magic dudes Penn & Teller. In each episode, the duo challenged aspiring magicians to perform a trick while they attempted to figure out how it was done—and any contestant who stumped them earned a chance to perform with them in Las Vegas. Season 2 will use the same format but feature all-new episodes. 

Masters of Illusion will also be back for a second season, though its premise is less interesting than that of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. It's basically magicians on stage doing magic, and that's it. Dean Cain hosts. 

All three shows will debut sometime in 2015.

I like Penn and Tellerso I'm happy that Fool Us is coming back hopefully it will be imported back to us?! Even though ITV cancelled it its ratings where ok. Would prefer BS to come back, great show which they clearly enjoyed doing (topless models just because the could!)

Good for them, I guess? You're right, those aren't the CW shows I watch anyways.
