They are back! America's Next Top Model, Cycle 13 is the thirteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model and the seventh season to be aired on The CW network. It premiered on September 9, 2009. This cycle's catch phrase is "'The Lineup Is 5"7' And Under. Not The Usual Suspects. BOOK 'EM!", and the promotional song is "Good Girls Go Bad" by Cobra Starship featuring Leighton Meester.

The winner will win management and representation by Wilhelmina Models, a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics and a cover and six-page spread within Seventeen magazine. The change from Elite Model Management to Wilhelmina marks the first change in prizes in six cycles. It should also be noted that Cycle 1 had a Wilhelmina contract as one of its prizes. The removal of judge Paulina Porizkova marks the first change in judging panel since Cycle 10.

This cycle has been moved back to Los Angeles, after being filmed in New York City for Cycle 12. The cast size is once again increased to 14 contestants, with each contestant being 5'7" or shorter.
