We always knew wanted to be the next Oprah Winfrey. We just didn’t expect her to follow the talk show queen’s every move.

Today, the model-turned-entrepreneur revealed that she will end her daytime talk show at the end of this season. This surprising news comes just a month after Winfrey announced she would end her run.

“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show,” Banks told People. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”

Although many had wondered whether Tyra would try to fill Oprah’s shoes, she is now shifting her focus to the big screen. Her hope is to bring “positive images of women to the big screen” through Bankable Studios. “My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,” Banks said.

The end of her daytime program won’t necessarily mean the end of Tyra on television. Cycle 14 of is still scheduled to premiere sometime in February.
